Vatican/American Bishops order nuns to dump poor & do more gay-bashing!!!

Recently the Vatican & the American Bishops have ordered their nuns ( LCWR - look them up) to STOP focusing on serving the poor & put more focus on opposing gay marriage & stopping abortion. They even went so far as to assign the Archbishop of Seattle to be the 'man' to force this re-focus on the good sisters!!!

Talk about hubris from 'moral-midgets'.... these are the same 'boys' who colluded to cover up the sins of obviously sick priests, instead of removing them & offering them needed therapy..

I am a RC type myself & instead of leaving the church, have chosen to try to 'change it from within'... time will tell if this was a foolish decision ... I ask all folks ( RC or not) to join me righting this blatant power play against these religious women... with enough voices we can have a 3 for 1... help the poor who these brave nuns serve... encourage these nuns to stay focused on their good works & maybe, just maybe cause these 'old, white, out of touch men' to wake up to what this church should really be about... attending to the call of Jesus to help those less fortunate... thx for your support......

      Attending a catholic high school and university I was taught to think for myself on religious matters. These good nuns are thinking for themselves using the words of Jesus on the beatitudes. I cheer them on. I'm sorry the Archbishop of Seattle and the Pope have taken it upon themselves to meddle in the affairs of women performing works of mercy. Hope the nuns stand their ground with the support of the laity, Catholic or not!

      The Catholic church had better get it's act together before the church is destroyed. The American Nuns are doing a fantastic job, more so than the priests, who I find it hard to contact! I wonder what Christ would say about this?

      These are the same men who abused an try to cover up the abuse of boys. There moral compass is no where near I think that of the son of God. Who is what this is all based on.

      I was raised Catholic but I have come to realize that the Roman Catholic power structure is not about religion but rather about money and control.
