Kate McElwee, co-executive director of the Women’s Ordination Conference, says that while she supports the idea of married priests, she thinks it takes away from the discussion of women’s roles in the Church. “A married priesthood would be a great step for heterosexual men, and another attempt to obscure the urgency for women’s full equality in our Church,” she told The Daily Beast. “We know that many people in loving relationships would be and are wonderful ministers and we welcome changes that include more people in ordained ministries.
