The “Leadership Council of Women Religious” represents 70% of American Nuns. After being condemned by the Vatican the good sisters spent six weeks in silence. Now they have roared. The national board of the nuns has said they will not accept the verdict. Hopefully the “Catholic Spring” will spread to other denominations as well. We have some good old boys in the Presbyterian Church that could use some of this tough love. If the Sisters stand firm, there isn’t a single thing the Vatican boys can do about this. It’s time for religious patriarchy to be put to bed once and for all.
