STLToday has a story today about the upcoming Annual Assembly of those most defiant of heretics, the Leadership Council of Women Religious (LCWR).
The LCWR employs newspeak worthy of Orwell, assisted gladly by the Post-Dispatch. Check out this sublimely banal excerpt to which I will add emphases and comments:
Since the Vatican report was released in April, the rift has resonated with some American Catholics who feel (we're a nation of "feelers", who can't "feel" compassion for the most innocent lives these sisters are willing to sacrifice to Moloch) bishops have become too focused on gay marriage and abortion. Many took issue with the Vatican report that denounced the sisters' group — which represents nuns who work with the poor and sick (they're soooooo good)— for being 'silent on the right to life from conception to natural death" and for leaving "the Church's biblical view of family life and human sexuality" off its "agenda.". How dare they!
"You see a difference in the theology (to the extent anyone cares, the difference is between a Catholic theology and an heretical one) of the sisters who are on the margins, who live with the people, whose theology is informed by the work they do," said Jennifer Reyes Lay, program coordinator for the St. Louis-based Catholic Action Network. CAN actively promotes the heresy of women's priestly ordination (which is literally impossible, btw). "And then the theology of people who hold positions in the hierarchy who aren't as connected to people and who can maintain black and white guidelines. It gets messier when you're on the ground. So, if some babies have to be murdered in order to expand government benefits, too bad. We can't be "too focused" on not killing them.
Hey, Ladies, stop blaming the poor you claim to serve for supporting the killers of their children.
St Louis is Really a Backward Place
