    Catholic nuns group 'stunned' by Vatican slap

    So can we now picket the Vatican with signs to tell them to stop pushing the nuns?

    So the Vatican looks the other way for decades of little-boy rape by priests, but the "crisis" of vaguely tolerant nuns merits their immediate action.
    It would be hard to dream up a sicker or more dysfunctional orgnanization.
    Morally bankrupt con men.. and they have the nerve to lecture us about morality.

    i think with all the tantrums the roman catholic church is throwing, it's pushing more people away.

    i hope the nuns do hold their ground saying, "picketing homos wasn't part of our vows. bitch, we're busy enough as it is running schools, hospitals, treating the sick, sheltering the homeless, doing catechism classes and pre-marriage counseling. we've done this long enough without complaining. asking us to help you throw your damn tantrums is a bit too much to ask for."

    doubt the church would reconsider the nuns' approach... well, who would listen to women in the first place in such a patriarchal society?

    I picture the pope hitting nuns on their knuckles with a ruler. icon_twisted.gif

    "Moreover, occasional public statements by the LCWR that disagree with or challenge positions taken by the bishops, who are the church's authentic teachers of faith and morals, are not compatible with its purpose.”

    That right there is the money quote. Because we all know Jesus didn't question authority, and that the flock should blindly follow and not ask questions. icon_rolleyes.gif


    The Catholic hierarchy is morally bankrupt, as KisstheSky said above.

    I would think they be all about promoting the pillage of a nuns temple as evidence they stopped with young boys.
