    American nuns have lambasted bishops for failing to speak out over the recent spate of gay teen suicides in the US.

    WashingtonBlade.com reports that the National Coalition of American Nuns released a statement earlier this week that accused the US Conference of Catholic Bishops of acting like “blinded Pharisees” as they continued to wage war against marriage equality without acknowledging the recent tragic events that have swept across America.

    “The US Catholic Bishops failed to make a single statement regarding these tragic, preventable deaths,” says the statement; adding that despite more than a month having passed since the news of the deaths of Asher Brown, Billy Lucas, Tyler Clementi and a number of other gay teens suicides broke “not one bishop’s voice was raised”.

    The statement goes on to criticise the bishops for failing to “condemn a culture where youths are bullied for being who God created them to be and are sometimes pushed by society’s judgments to attempt suicide.”

    The Conference of Catholic Bishops, which represents Roman Catholic bishops in the US, held its annual fall General Assembly meeting this week in Baltimore.

    Thankfully some people are finally starting to see the light. I hope the bishops and priests pay attention.

    These nuns are yelling into the wind

    This is the same Church administration who launched an ecclesiastical inquiry into the goings on of a group of nuns and priests who were administering to people with AIDS
