Disgracing St Thomas More...?

This, from California Catholic Daily:
San Diego’s St. Thomas More Society offers forum to woman who claims to be a priest

The St. Thomas More Society of San Diego has invited “womanpriest” Jane Via to speak at a meeting on Friday, Aug. 3, even though Via is under interdict by San Diego Bishop Robert Brom, who last summer forwarded her case to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in Rome for further action, possibly a formal declaration of excommunication.

The Via invitation has sparked internal discord among members of the St. Thomas More Society of San Diego, with some members objecting that inviting someone in open defiance of ecclesiastical authority is not in keeping with the group’s mission...
Praised be to God that some wiser ones have spoken up. But what if this is a ploy? What if this turns out to be a setup to challenge Via and her delusional thinking that she is a "priestess"? This could very well be an event to see...Insights from someone closer to the Society would certainly be helpful...
