Catholic nuns scorned by own religion?
A prominent U.S. Catholic nuns group said it was "stunned" that the Vatican reprimanded it for spending too much time on poverty and social justice concerns and not enough on abortion and gay marriage.
In a stinging report on Wednesday, the Vatican said the Leadership Conference of Women Religious had been "silent on the right to life" and had failed to make the "Biblical view of family life and human sexuality" a central plank in its agenda. It accused the group of promoting "certain radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith."
It also reprimanded American nuns for expressing positions on political issues that differed, at times, from views held by American bishops. Public disagreement with the bishops -- "who are the church's authentic teachers of faith and morals" -- is unacceptable, the report said.
Could it be that they are more human than the church for a change?
You have to applaud the rebellion. Catholicism is making Atheists daily on a massive scale.
The Obama demonizing in full effect of course comparing to Hitler... no... Bush started that Middle East shit.
They say Obama is a extremist secular. WTF. Really? Never saw Obama be anything but smart and black with a whole lot of racial opposition.
BTW, I'm a WHITE GRINGO CRACKER... and I approve this president.
