I am a member of the Council of the Baptized - Catholic Coalition for Church Reform and I believe that now is the time for the church to accept two groups of people as Jesus would. The groups are women who have been called to serve and people who are attracted sexually to the same sex.
1. Women are eligible for ordination because of their individual call, in Justice, with discernment.
2. Same sex couples should now be welcomed as members of the church regardless of their sexual preference and should not be reviled a sinners. We are all sinners.
Thank you for the opportunity to speak what is in my heart and on my mind.
