Rabbi Michael Lerner is asking his followers to write to the Vatican objecting to the pending excommunication of Father Roy Bourgeois, a priest who recently presided over the staged “ordination” of women who consider themselves to be priests. Lerner would do well to mind his own business.
This is not the first time that Lerner has had the chutzpah to lecture the Catholic Church and brand it authoritarian. Known as the religious guru of the Democratic Party, Lerner rejects the institution of marriage and shows little respect for the autonomy of religious organizations. The National Review got it just right when it recently said that “Lerner is to Judaism what Barney Fife is to law enforcement.”
In short, Rabbi Michael Lerner is an angry left-wing radical with a penchant for sticking his nose in where he doesn’t belong.
