They just don’t make nuns like they used to…

“I’m stunned . . .We haven’t violated any teaching, we have just been raising questions and interpreting politics,” Sr. Simone Campbell, head of Network, a Catholic social justice lobby, told The New York Times.

Benedictine Sr. Joan Chittister, former president of the LCWR, told the National Catholic Reporter:

“When you set out to reform a people, a group, who have done nothing wrong, you have to have an intention, a motivation that is not only morally biased, but actually immoral.  

“Because you are attempting to control people for one thing and one thing only — and that is for thinking, for being willing to discuss the issues of the age . . . If we stop thinking, if we stop demanding the divine right to think, and to see that as a Catholic gift, then we are betraying the church no matter what the powers of the Church see as an inconvenient truth in their own times.”

Editor’s note: Ms. Campbell and Ms. Chittister intentionally fib when they “bill” themselves as Catholic, while consistently failing to affirm all the truths of the Catholic faith.

In truth, these ladies are radical feminists who have no allegiance to anything but their own novel ideas. Unfortunately, many if not most of those ideas have little in common with the authentic Roman Catholic faith.

There was a time when people like that … whatever their gender … were rightly termed Protestants … or even … pagans.

Better think fast, sisters … the “jig” appears to be … “up”!

  1. You say, “Ms. Campbell and Ms. Chittister intentionally fib when they “bill” themselves as Catholic… In truth, these ladies are radical feminists who have no allegiance to anything but their own novel ideas.”
    You must have forgotten what Jesus said in Matthew 7:1 — “Stop judging, that you may not be judged.”

    • On the contrary, Jesus demands that we constantly make prudential judgments on matters of faith and morals, so that we might fulfill our Christian mission, both personally and corporately.

      Judgment to Heaven or Hell is reserved to Christ alone, and I would never presume to make that call.

      As for the ladies in question … their public actions and their own words, over a period of many, many years, convict them.
