Vatican orders crackdown on 'radical' nuns in the US


The Vatican has ordered a crackdown on a group of American nuns that it considers too radical.
It says the group is undermining Roman Catholic teaching on homosexuality and is promoting "feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith".
The Leadership Conference of Women Religious is the largest organisation of Catholic nuns in the US.
An archbishop has been appointed to oversee its reform to ensure that it conforms to Catholic prayer and ritual.
The Leadership Conference, which is based in Maryland, represents about 57,000 nuns and offers a wide range of services, from leadership training for women's religious orders to advocacy on social justice issues.
Vatican concerns
But its activities have clearly worried the Roman Catholic hierarchy.
The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith said the nuns' organisation faced a "grave" doctrinal crisis.
It said issues of "crucial importance" to the church, such as abortion and euthanasia, had been ignored.
Vatican officials also castigated the group for making some public statements that "disagree with or challenge positions taken by the bishops", who are the church's "authentic teachers of faith and morals."
The review will include an examination of ties between the Leadership Conference and Network, a Catholic social justice lobby.
Network played a key role in supporting the Obama administration's health care overhaul despite the bishops' objections that the bill would provide government funding for abortion.
The Leadership Conference disagreed with the bishops' analysis of the law and also supported President Barack Obama's plan.

"To know what you prefer instead of humbly saying Amen to what the world tells you you ought to prefer, is to have kept your soul alive." --Robert Louis Stevenson

“A religious person is a dangerous person. He may not become a thief or a murderer, but he is liable to become a nuisance. He carries with him many foolish and harmful superstitions, and he is possessed with the notion that it is his duty to give these superstitions to others. That is what makes trouble. Nothing is so worthless as superstition. . . .”
—Marilla M. Ricker, attorney, abolitionist, humanitarian, suffragist, and freethinker in "Science Against Creeds," I Am Not Afraid Are You? (1917)

These women fully understood prior to becoming nuns that they were required to accept and abide by the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church.

Despite an unremarkable mug, no man is more renowned for his power over women than Giacomo Casanova. In fact, his name has become synonymous with seduction. During his 73 years, he made love to noblewomen, actresses, dancers, chambermaids, Greek slave girls, a priest's niece, a farmer's daughter, five sisters (plus their mother), a transvestite, a hunchback (with "an excitingly misplaced vulva"), a nymphomaniac, and two unrepentant nuns

The role of Sister Jeanne was originally offered to Glenda Jackson, who turned it down because she was tired of playing sexually neurotic leads in Ken Russell movies.

You say that like the fact that they are daring to challenge the religious oligarchy and it's ridicules system of rule making by the prior degree of some dead imposter intermediary between God and man is a bad thing

That would indicate that they may have heterosexual tendencies, which means it's very unlikely
