"The Catholic Church's Treatment of Nuns Is Polarizing and Alienating"

The Catholic Church's Treatment of Nuns Is Polarizing and Alienating - US News and World Report

 The Vatican is criticizing its dedicated female servants when it should be giving them a larger role in the church

Catholic nuns

Mary Kate Cary says I'm not a Catholic theologian or expert or activist of any kind. I'm just a mom who is getting increasingly uncomfortable with the Catholic Church in which my daughters are growing up. To me, the Vatican has become polarizing, extremist, and alienating. It seems like the true believers vs. the infidels. Now it's the bishops vs. the nuns.
The Vatican's enforcement office, known as the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, recently said this about the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), a mainstream organization that represents approximately 80 percent of the 57,000 nuns in the United States: "Occasional public statements by the LCWR that disagree with or challenge positions taken by the bishops, who are the church's authentic teachers of faith and morals, are not compatible with its purpose." The LCWR was found to have "certain radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith." This was after a multi-year investigation of the nuns by a panel of American bishops.

Comment....Hey, I don't make this stuff up...and not I'm not against the Catholic Church. The significance here means something is going on..
