Having the Sisters' Back

Date: April 25, 2012

After an official investigation, the Vatican seems pretty upset with the Catholic Sisters here in the United States. They have reprimanded the women for not sufficiently upholding the bishops' teachings and doctrines and paying much more attention to issues like poverty and health care than to abortion, homosexuality and male-only priesthood.

There are concerns with "a prevalence of certain radical feminist themes" and they have been taken to task for "occasional public statements" that disagree with the bishops, "who are the church's authentic teachers of faith and morals."
