Yesterday the Vatican took a blow torch to the leadership conference of American nuns. Rome said the in the nuns’ leadership there was a prevalence of certain radical themes incompatible with the Catholic faith. American nuns did not sufficiently support the church’s teaching on abortion, same-sex marriage and the ordination of women priests. The Bishop of Seattle has been appointed to shake up the nuns’ leadersip conference from top to bottom.
Sister Joan Chittister says this another Vatican attempt to control people just for what they are thinking.
Should the Vatican crack down on American nuns?
What do you think?
