U.S. nuns locked in battle with conservative Vatican leadership
Are you for the nuns or the Vatican?
It seems to me that the nuns, and not the Pope or the Vatican, are representing the ethic and spirit of the Sermon on the Mount preached by Jesus....a crisis meeting of more than 900 Catholic sisters of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, who represent some 80 per cent of America’s 57,000 nuns, a group attacked by the Vatican for harbouring “radical feminist ideas:” putting too much energy into social justice and too little into fighting abortion, contraception, gay rights and other traditional Catholic anathemas.
They have also dared to discuss women’s ordination, priestly marriage and hot-button political issues such as U.S. President Barack Obama’s health-care plan, to which the church is fiercely opposed.
What say you?
