In a wide-ranging talk, she also said arguments against women in the priesthood are «untenable» – and labelled Pope Francis a disappointment when it comes to women’s rights.

She remains a practising Catholic, but she views the church’s teaching on homosexuality as another dark chapter in the church’s history.
