Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "The Needed Extension"
What the hell was that tonight?
I am a Catholic and let me be really damn clear, nuns don't belong at partisan events.
I'll defend your right to speak out against war or even in favor of one but the Catholic Church isn't partisan and nuns work for the church.
Leave it to the dumb ass Democratic leaders to put nuns on stage.
That was highly offensive.
If nuns want to be considered "bitches" then they should take to partisan events and continue whoring. Otherwise, get the hell off the stage.
I do not approve of that and I will never approve of it. Nuns are not supposed to be partisan. If you don't get that, you're not Catholic and I don't give a f**k what you think about the subject. Is that clear? This is a Catholic issue.
Nuns are supposed to render to those in need. They harm that ability when they whore for a political party.
I also blame the idiots in charge of this convention that thought we needed nuns on stage. Nuns are supposed to be impartial.
When they lose that, they have no reason to exist.
I will not let this alone. I will be contacting the Church, working through the hierarchy to make sure my opinion is heard. I doubt I am the only Catholic who feels that way. It is hilarious that one of the greatest presidents of all time, JFK, had to prove that the Catholic Church would not control his presidency but the worst president Barack wants to use nuns as whores.
And, repeating, they don't belong on stage. Nor are they to be worshipped. Frances Kissling (WMC) noted last month:
The peak of interest in the feisty nun came with health care reform and the role played by Sister Carol Keehan, head of the Catholic hospital association. Keehan, committed to health care for the poor, worked hard to get health reform. She also fought hard to ensure that abortion was not part of the package. Her opposition to including abortion was overlooked by progressives when CHA broke with the extreme anti-abortion position of the bishops and announced that as far as they were concerned the bill had adequately excluded funding for abortion and should be passed.
Sister Carol was lauded by progressive Democrats as the savior of health care reform. Catholic pundits like E.J. Dionne and Maureen Dowd were relieved to have an official and powerful Catholic who was not Attila the Nun to Pope Benedict, “God’s Rottweiler.”
This year’s transgressive nuns are those in the Leadership Conference of Women Religious whom the Vatican has investigated and found wanting. It has, in essence, declared the LCWR theologically bankrupt and put it into doctrinal receivership. The Vatican has appointed Bishop Peter Sartain and two others, “to review, guide and approve, where necessary, the work of the LCWR. ”
For Catholic women and nuns who truly have worked to change the church and support women as moral agents, the charges against LCWR and indeed LCWR’s supposed radical feminism are laughable. LCWR members are the nuns who run the Catholic hospitals that say they cannot provide employees with insurance coverage for no cost contraception. They were careful to note that they supported the Affordable Care Act because it was clear to them that it did not cover abortion. They do not defend sisters who get in trouble with the Vatican, instead they try to convince the sisters to do what the Vatican wants. Their radicalism consists of an occasional speaker at annual meeting who speaks New Age Eco-feminism and spirituality as opposed to Catholic faith. It has tangential relationships with some of the more moderate groups of Catholic nuns such as the sister’s Washington based lobby Network and a ministry to GLBT Catholics called New Ways Ministry. Neither of these organizations takes positions on sexual and reproductive health issues—not on the morality of same sex relations, not on contraception or abortion and not even on women’s ordination. LCWR keeps its distance from the Catholic GLBT rights group Dignity, the Women’s Ordination Conference, the truly radical National Coalition of American Nuns and of course Catholics for Choice.
Again, nuns aren't to be worshipped.
