When covering anything having to do with the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith’s reform of the leadership of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR – a subsidiary of the Magisterium of Nuns) the liberal press claims that the male hierarchy is unjustly attacking all the nuns (or sisters … whatever). The poor sisters only want to help the poor and teach your children their ABC’s (as if the liberated LCWR types have done a lot of that in the last few decades), but the meanies won’t leave them alone.
A reader sent me a link to a new support group for the poor, oppressed sisters. Remember: ALL the sisters are under attack, right? It isn’t that the leadership of the LCWR is being called to change. No. ALL sisters are under attack.
That’s why we need the new website: Nun Justice Project!
Yes, dear reader, you can now ally yourself with the following groups in backing this great cause in defense of all the nuns against the mean meanies:
Who is Nun Justice?
The Nun Justice Project is a grassroots movement supported by the following organizations:
American Catholic Council
Association for the Rights of Catholics in the Church
Call To Action
Catholics for Choice
New Ways Ministry
Voice of the Faithful
WATER: Women’s Alliance for Theology Ethics and Ritual
Women’s Ordination Conference
With friends like these, why again would the Holy See be looking closely at the LCWR?
I see groups of ex-priests and lesbians and women’s ordination advocates listed.
Oddly I didn’t see SNAP.
Perhaps that is because SNAP has picketted LCWR meetings because they won’t come clean about instances of sexual abuse of children by women religious… which for some reason the liberal press won’t cover.
