Twice in three weeks, I have disagreed with Mary Kenny of The Catholic Herald, which is the best Catholic newspaper in GB at this time. It may be her editors and the person who writes the headlines, which do not help her article. This week, she shows that she has no understanding of the seriousness of the defection of the nuns and sisters of the LCWR in America, something which is being discussed for weeks and weeks at length at wdtprs. Ms. Kenny should read the real deal.
Those of us who have put up with the tyranny of the majority of nuns and sisters who have taught heresy and have stood against Humanae Vitae and the Gospel of Life, know what we have been up against since the early 1970s. I have written about this myself, how the nuns at my campus installed NOW as early as 1970-1971 academic year, giving them the right to counsel girls who were pregnant. Duh. This is not news. The Vatican has taken a very long time in dealing with a serious problem of defection among the nuns.
I suggest Mary does her homework. The Obamacare package may be declared unconstitutional within 70 hours, God willing, and those of us who have followed this bill and actually read the sections which not only support contraception and abortion facilities, but deny freedom of conscience to those in the insurance and health industries, know what we are up against, as do all, that is all the bishops, who signed the statement of non-support, realizing the act is an attack on religious freedom in the States.
Either Ms. Kenny does her homework before writing or she should not choose a subject about which she is ignorant. This action of the CDF is not about politics, it is about core teachings of the Catholic Church and whether nuns and sisters are living out their vows. This list of areas where these sisters leave Church doctrine is too long for me to repeat. One can read my comments on Fr. Z. He is covering this situation nicely.
