Vatican Reprimands a Group of U.S. Nuns and Plans Changes
The Vatican has appointed an American bishop to rein in the largest and most influential group of Catholic nuns in the United States, saying that an investigation found that the group had “serious doctrinal problems.”
The Vatican’s assessment, issued on Wednesday, said that members of the group, the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, had challenged church teaching on homosexuality and the male-only priesthood, and promoted “radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith.”
I was being flippant.
Women spend their entire lives defending, justifying, being anodyne, every word offered has to be qualified and made palatable.
Often times, a black and white statement and a good chuckle is a relief.
A bit like blonde jokes: they're not universally true either (and most blondes aren't even blonde), but they're still funny.
(I did mention the Pope, didn't I?)
