Passed along in email:
The Vatican has decided to clamp down on an American group of nuns, The Leadership Conference of Women Religious, the largest organization of Catholic nuns in the U.S. The organization is accused of paying too little approved attention to such issues as abortion and euthanasia, among other "grave" divergences.
According to the BBC report:
Vatican officials also castigated the group for making some public statements that "disagree with or challenge positions taken by the bishops", who are the church's "authentic teachers of faith and morals."As the emailer pointed out, ragging on the 'radical' Catholic women may help divert attention away from the Catholic men whose sense of social justice does not seem to extend beyond penis-point.
Will there ever come a time when humanity is free from "authentic" teachers? Probably not: Everyone loves a story and the more self-serving the better.
Lord love a duck!
Or put more plainly ... shit!
