In a story about the CDF smackdown on the LCWR, USA Today quotes Sr. Simone Campbell of the ultra-poltical, ultra-liberal Nuns on the Bus crowd.
Sr. Campbell is too smart actually to believe this, but let’s read it anyway:
[…] Sister Simone Campbell of Network, a Catholic social justice lobbying group, said Monday that she would wait and see how this plays out across time and changes in Vatican bureaucracy that may be ahead under Francis.
“The censure (of the LCWR) has always been about politics. [?!?] And politics are shifting in the church right now. We know when politics shift, there are opportunities and there are risks,” said Campbell.
“But we are concerned that Catholic sisters below the decision-making level are caught in the bigger picture of Vatican politics. We’re sort of the soccer ball here. My most optimistic self had hoped that CDF report would never be mentioned again but in light of the broader politics, I think it was overly optimistic of me,” Campbell said.
Riiiiight. What a rich fantasy life.
They are all just poor little soccer balls, being kicked around by the boys. It’s all just a political game and the poor nuns are caught in the middle.
This is about doctrine not politics. Read for yourself the doctrinal assessment of the LCWR by the CDF. HERE
Dear readers, allow me to remind you of the LCWR’s keynote speaker for their last assembly. Barbara Marx Hubbard. She described herself on her Facebook page: “I am an 82 year old Visionary enjoying “Regenopause 2.” Regenopause 1 is from 50 to 80. # 2 is 80 and beyond. I feel I am here to be a voice for the Collective Emergence of humanity as a Co-creative Universal Species!” Hubbard is into some seriously messed up stuff. More on her HERE
No, Sister Campbell, the nuns are not innocent victims.
The nuns brought it on themselves when they started to “move beyond the Church” and even beyond Jesus.
