We should each contact the diocese to let them know we are unhappy with their double standard. That won't necessarily change anything, but at least they are on alert that people are aware of the hypocrisy.
…It has also become a popular myth in certain circles to commit a major error by implying that God is feminine, that God has a feminine nature or that God has both a feminine and masculine nature. This was a main focus during Sr. Chittister's Friday night presentation…
|Dissident nun: IN|
The topic of MV’s presentation this Saturday will be: “Catholics Must Stand Up Against the Intrinsic Evil of Abortion”, and yet priests are not to promote the event! Oh yeah…that’s one of those issues we’re obsessing over…
Anyway, the reason MV is speaking on that issue is that a local hospital in Evansville performs abortions. And while the hospital is not itself a Catholic hospital (though that doesn’t make its practice of abortion any less egregious), the physician who does occasional abortions is alleged to be a "practicing" Catholic (in a neighboring diocese, though; not Evansville).
CK notes that:
The CEO of Deaconess Hospital's "Women's Clinic" is allegedly a practicing Catholic. This is where the terminations [abortions – the hospital’s official documents use the euphemism] are taking place.
The person who oversees all of the Deaconess Hospital agencies and/or affiliates is a former nun (OSB, as I understand it) and wrote the policy on Deaconess' position on pregnancy termination. From my source, this lady is also allegedly a practicing Catholic. The main "campus" for Deaconess Hospital is downtown Evansville.
My source also told me that the board members for Southwest Indiana Right to Life have spoken with our bishop on this situation.
So…liberal, progressive, modernist, dissident nuns: IN. Orthodox faithful Catholic layman: OUT.
Sounds like business as usual. But really, why in the world are Sr. Joan Chittister and her ilk allowed to speak anywhere that boasts of a Catholic affiliation?
