Vatican police block backers of women's ordination
The protest was led by Father Roy Bourgeois, an American priest who has accepted excommunication and dismissal from the Maryknoll religious order because of his continuing participation in the women’s-ordination movement. The caption on an AP photo accompanying the report from the Vatican identified another demonstrator as “Janice Sevre,” without noting that the woman claims to be a Catholic priest.
The Vatican police routinely block demonstrations in St. Peter's Square.
