Vatican to Investigate Lefty Nuns


One of the worst things about American Catholicism is its militia of feminist nuns, who long ago decided that the Magisterium was too restricting for them, and that if they couldn't be priests they could at least swan around like them, issuing bossy diktats about "being Church".

How satisfying, then, to learn that the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith is launching a "doctrinal assessment" of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), a stronghold of the finger-wagging, right-on sisterhood.

They're furious, of course! And so is the National Catholic Reporter, a weekly whingefest of "empowered" laity and their priest lackeys

What could POSSIBLY have engaged the interest of the Vatican?

Cardinal William Levada, Prefect of the CDF, has announced the assessment in the light of the sisters' insistence on challenging Church teaching on women priests, non-Catholic churches and homosexuality at their dreary conferences.

You don't need to know much more about LCWR than this.

It's sad it has to come to this, but a needed and necessary investigation.

I suspect that these heritics are planning open rebellion & sucession by declaring they are the true Catholic Church.

Hope they have their asbestos pant suits ready, they'll need them.
