The Sad End of the Priestly Ministry of Mr. Roy Bourgeois
Catholic Online ^ | 11/20/12 | Deacon Keith Fournier

Disobedience and preaching against the teaching of the Catholic Church about women's ordination led to his excommunication, dismissal and laicization. Then Fr. Bourgeois engaged in an obstinate crusade which involved public and direct defiance of the Holy See and a repudiation of the unbroken teaching of the Magisterium of the Catholic Church concerning sacred ordination.

MARYKNOLL, N.Y. (Catholic Online) - The short Press Release from the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers confirmed some sad news on Monday, November 19, 2012. The priestly ministry of Roy Bourgeois has come to an end:



The Congregation For The Doctrine Of The Faith Canonically Dismisses Roy Bourgeois

Nov. 19, 2012: The Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, on October 4, 2012, canonically dismissed Roy Bourgeois from the Catholic Foreign Mission Society of America, also known as the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers. The decision dispenses the Maryknoll priest from his sacred bonds.

As a priest during 2008, Mr. Bourgeois participated in the invalid ordination of a woman and a simulated Mass in Lexington, Kentucky. With patience, the Holy See and the Maryknoll Society have encouraged his reconciliation with the Catholic Church.

About time that the Catholic Church got rid of the marxist traitor Roy Bourgeois. He has been mixed up in every marxist movement and cause in Latin America since the 1970s, including CISPES/FALN, in El Salvador; the Sandistinas in Nicaragua; possibly WOLA (Wash. Office on Latin America), possibly EPICA (Rev. Wheaton’s one man red front); Possibly Medical Aid for El Salvador, a front created by the same person who created Medical Aid for Indochina (a part of the Hanoi Lobby); the marxist group that wants to close the School of the Americas counterinsurgency organization; and participated in protests of the Workers World Party (stalinists), among others.

Don’t have my notes with me so I’m winging it about Bourgeois’ communist causes but he is a “liberation theology” proponent and hardcore marxist.

You can find him in the newsletter “American Sentinel” as well as the books of the Council for Inter-American Security (authors Waller, Brownfield, Bouchey, etc).

He should also be excommunicated, though that wouldn’t bother him.

Knew him in the 70’s. He was later connected to Martin Sheen, They protested together, often.

Absolutely correct about this guy and the Maryknoll connection to 'Liberation Theology' and the communists in Latin America.
Their mission house in San Salvador is where the 4 ton cache of weapons was found buried in the courtyard and they "had no idea how they got there."

Communist enablers hiding behind the cloth of the church.

Fournier is far too kind about Bourgeois’s “activism.” Bourgeois didn’t just “oppose atrocities.” He was a full-throated supporter of every Communist regime in Central and South America. As were the Maryknollers.

Opposite ends of the Maryknoll spectrum.
