LCWR celebrates the Year of the Priest (not)
In this Year of the Priest, many parishes and dioceses make mention of it on their websites and have special emphasis on appreciating everything these men do for the flock. Being the type of guy I am, I wondered "Hey, I wonder what the LCWR has to say about it?". Naturally, there doesn't appear to be any special mention of it on their website (big surprise!).
Then I read the article in the NC Reporter about their big Nag-Fest in New Orleans. Doesn't seem like they're too thrilled with it. It's bad enough that the big, bad ol' Catholic Church keeps women "down", but then to celebrate it with a special Year for Priests? AND actually have the gall to investigate the LCWR???? For heaven's sake, I'm surprised they didn't invite in some Muslims to assist them in burning the Pope in effigy.
The comments following the article are good for comical relief, too. Have a gander:
