VATICAN CITY Pope Francis on Wednesday backed efforts for equal pay for men and women who perform the same work, saying that continuing disparities in pay for women are a "pure scandal."
It’s interesting to hear Francis promote “radical equality” for women while the vast religious organization he leads discriminates against women in PROFOUND ways. Apparently, Francis has no sense of irony and is blind to the hypocrisy inherent in his statements. We think it's "pure scandal" that the Roman Church refuses to treat women with "radical equality". How long must we wait for justice?
His words will mean something when he insists that women priests be paid the same salary as male priests.
