Vatican/Anglican theological scandal

Roman Catholic feminist theologian Mary E. Hunt could not be more blunt about Pope Benedict XVI’s outreach to disaffected Anglicans:

Let history record this theological scandal for what it is. Touted by Rome as a step forward in ecumenical relations with a cousin communion, it is in fact the joining of two camps united in their rejection of women and queer people as unworthy of religious leadership.

The case she makes at Religion Dispatches is compelling and for those who are not satire-averse, somewhat delicious.
