Quoted from a reply to the original article--well put.

"Perhaps rather than simply wish (and presume pray), the church should welcome all without judgement; view women as equals and share in the extreme wealth of the church; evolve as many respected nuns / orders of sisters have; build bridges to and with other faiths so as to not view one religion superior to another; and proclaim that we are one human race and support equality for all regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, social economic status, sexuality, political affiliation, age, weight, height, faith ... the list goes on."
