Ordaining women priests is a revolt against Catholic orders, a rejection of the Fathers’ teaching and a denial of the authority of Scripture, writes Alice Linsley in a hard-hitting essay in the Anglican journal Virtue Online.

Linsley, who served as a priest in the Episcopal Church of the U.S.A. (ECUSA) for 16 years, renounced her orders and quit her denomination “as it moved toward a radical revision of the Gospel, setting aside the apostolic Tradition for its social justice agenda.”
