Suprising Sage, Pt. 2

by twofiftyorless

I remain loyal to Him…
I believe that the Church is Jesus’ church, and that it has lost its way…
It deserves better, but the only way to change it is from the inside.
If I don’t try, who will?

Apparently, changing “the church” is no easy undertaking. The group that represents Sister Regina has been under “assessment” by the Vatican and are now being held under the foot of an Archbishop Delegate for collectively taking a position not in agreement with the Church’s teaching on human sexuality and being “silent on the issues of the right to life from conception to natural death, a question that is part of the lively public debate about abortion and euthanasia…” Additionally, some (like Sister Regina) make occasional public statements that “disagree with or challenge positions taken by the Bishops, who are the Church’s authentic teachers of faith and morals”. This too is frowned upon.

The Leadership Conference of Women Religious has been dealt a challenging hand; I hope someone is really good at poker.

(The Daily Show did a decent segment on the topic here.)
