Vatican Orders Crackdown on American Nuns for Not Being Adequately Anti-Gay

Thursday, April 19, 2012

The Washington Post reports American nuns are about to get lashed by the Vatican for not being adequately anti-gay.

Pope Benedict XVI launched a crackdown on the umbrella group that represents most of America’s 55,000 Catholic nuns, saying that the group was not speaking out strongly enough against same-sex marriage, abortion and women’s ordination.

Rome also dissed the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) over sponsoring conferences that featured “a prevalence of certain radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith.”

The Vatican’s disciplinary action against the LCWR was announced on Wednesday (April 18), one day before Pope Benedict XVI marked seven years as pontiff.

In many ways, the Vatican’s actions against the LCWR encapsulated the kind of hard line many expected and received from Benedict — the Vatican’s former doctrinal czar when he was elected in 2005.

The directive, which follows a two-year investigation by the Vatican, also comes as Pope Benedict XVI appeared ready to welcome a controversial right-wing splinter group of Catholic traditionalists back into the fold, possibly by giving the group special status so that they can continue to espouse their old-line rites and beliefs.

    I don’t pretend to understand the reasons behind why the Roman Catholic Church seems committed to driving the church back 1,000 into the Dark Ages. Somehow, the Age of Enlightenment bypassed Rome and the old men in the Vatican are happy to pretend the 21st century is a myth.

  2. Brigadoon says:

    Feminazi – I think it all comes down to power and control. Pope Rat thinks the more hardline he is on his flock, the more loyal they will be. When in fact, based on the number of practicing Catholics in the U.S., the number is shrinking and the percentages closer to that of Europe. Even Latin American nations have seen a drop-off in the number of practicing Catholics. Pope Rat is driving people away in droves.

  3. Joe in Colorado says:

    Pope Benedict XVI must laugh at how Americans have been ‘neutered’ to accept anything.

  4. Walk on Socks says:

    Nuns I have had contact with are focused on social justice, education, and helping the elderly and the disabled. They do the heavy lifting so the priests can rape little boys.

    It’s a shame Nuns receive so little props within the male-centric Catholic hierarchy. There are so few Nuns left in the U.S. that I see a day in the very near future when there are none.

    When that day arrives, the church will be finished.

  5. Raze the church to the ground says:

    Being a ‘Non-believer’ Here’s what the Nuns response should be….. ” FORK YOU, Pope-a-dope,” ”I renounce my commitment to your church, and I’ve decided to leave”………….

  6. Raze the church to the ground says:

    Say, Pope-a-dope….. if you want to cause some pain, the very opposite to what your imaginary ghod jesus preached, why don’t you jam a red hot poker right up your ass!!!!!

  7. Jim says:

    What a total fucking nut job.

  8. Rachel says:

    Turn the Vatican into a huge stripper club with go-go boys and go-go girls screwing the pole.

  9. Harry says:

    Why do Catholics tolerate this tyranny from Rome?

  10. I'm laughing at the Pope... says:

    Say Bend-the-Dick 1/16th, face it…. you’re the boss of NOBODY. So STFU!!!!

  11. I'm laughing at the Pope... says:

    Why Hasn’t ”Bend-the Dick ” ordered a crackdown on priests & Nuns who RAPE & ABUSE children? What a useless piece of EXCREMENT he is…………..

    Don’t worry American Nuns, Sister Sarah is on the case. This SISTER is one rouge nun the Vatican can’t control. http://vimeo.com/15600213

  13. Randy Arroyo says:

    If the Catholic Church doesn’t grow, adapt and evolve, it won’t exist in another 50 years. Fewer and fewer people identify as religious in Europe, the U.S., Canada and even in Mexico. Hanging on to ancient tenets is simply foolish.

  14. I'm laughing at the Pope... says:

    Gee whiz, Randy Arroyo, now you’ve upset me…… I’m 67, and I was hoping to witness the destruction of the f-u-c-k-ing catholic church in my lifetime……… Another 50 years is way to long for the world to have to put up with more of this crap. It’s already suffered for 2,000 years! The Catholic church, is like an oozing boil on the ass of humanity…. that just won’t heal!

  15. Fran says:

    a prevalence of certain radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith.”

    Themes like pedophilia???

    Love thy neighbor, do unto others, judge not– hmmm methinks z Pope has not a clue!

    Let’s at least give it a name– How about “The Pope’s Hate Doctrine”

    Has a nice ring to it Eh?

  16. Fuckthechurch says:

    I’m ordering a crackdown on the Pope…. for being such a HUGE Asshole!!!!!
