Most Religious Sisters are the Brides of Christ.
The stupid ones recoil at that sobriquet.
I taught with some great nuns - women who understood their vows as well as the subjects that they taught. They were Sisters of Notre Dame. I worked with Springfield Dominican Sisters and they were equally matched to their vocations and their trade.
However, I have encountered many blithering idiots - females all - who took vows. One was an openly practicing lesbian and loudly bragged to high school girls about vive le differnce and Sapphic truth. She was also as dumb as hammered horseshit, sad to say. Another, allegedly a teaching order nun, wanted no part of the classroom and took to an Ashram - where, no doubt she was beaten to death by otherwise good people trying to find peace in a hostile world.
Abortion is murder. Simple. Just like, well gee, I think that Slavery was wrong. Too many Progressive Hegelian dimwits parse out horse manure that appears in Salon and The Nation and out of the mouths of some nuns.
Some nuns are really dumb. These are girls - probably now the youngest of them in their 50's - who were and are, as my County Kerry grandfather termed them, "Life's Unplucked Flowers." Perhaps they took vows decades ago 'to serve the Church' by being maladjusted pains in the ass and apply the principles of Hegelian Progressive Group Think to get at "The Old Boys Club" - The Bishops.
This is from the Progressive Feminist Nun's best pal CNN (Catholic Nitwit Nuns?):
"We write to urge you to cast a life-affirming 'yes' vote when the Senate health care bill (H.R. 3590) comes to the floor of the House for a vote as early as this week," a group of nuns wrote in a letter to members of Congress released Wednesday by NETWORK, progressive Catholic advocacy organization.
NETWORK said the 55 signatories represent tens of thousands of Catholic nuns in the United States.
The letter argues that the legislation "will make crucial investments in community health centers that largely serve poor women and children."
"And despite false claims to the contrary, the Senate bill will not provide taxpayer funding for elective abortions," the letter reads. "It will uphold longstanding conscience protections and it will make historic new investments – $250 million – in support of pregnant women. This is the REAL pro-life stance, and we as Catholics are all for it."
The nuns are siding with the Catholic Health Association, a group representing Catholic hospitals, which offered its support for reform earlier this week.
Both groups are diverging from the powerful U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, which stepped up its criticism of the bill in recent days. The president of the bishops conference, Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, said Monday that the bill's language on abortion is not restrictive enough to satisfy Catholics.
My guess is that there is a direct correlation between the Nuns for Obama Care and the Ordain Us Girls Faction. They could never get around to the fact that priests in the Catholic Church - the one that took vows to - are all males.
As it is girls, you took vows. So did I. I honored my wife until the day she went home to Christ and still do. You, Girls, are cheating on your vows - just like a drunken tom-catting husband might . . .but that you do not need to worry about.
What you Penguins need is a healthy dose of what you handed out to us recalcitrant scamps at Little Flower, Visitation, St. Sabina's and Christ the King . . .aside from the sociopathic whackings with rulers, bats and belts . . . a trip to see Father.
I hope the Good Bishops lay into you stupid broads with a will!
Like I said, most Religious Sisters - Nuns - are the Brides of Christ.
NETWORK is the name for the Nitwits
