African theologian questions church’s exclusion of women | National Catholic Reporter

Addressing 300 fellow theologians at the Catholic Theological Society of America meeting in St. Louis June 8, according to National Catholic Reporter, Jesuit Fr. Agbonkhianmeghe Orobator said the church “totters on the brink of compromising its self-identity as the basic sacrament of salvation” and that a particular concern is the church’s disregard of women.

Orobater wrapped up his address by saying, “I believe that it lies within the realm of possibility to transform our church into a truly catholic and richly textured (sic) patchwork of different genders, races, generations, orientations, ministries, and faith traditions that signify that saving presence of God in our midst.”

Here is a link to NCR’s entire report:
