So, ‘progressive‘ pope Francis doesn’t want feminist nuns in the Catholic Church:
Pope Francis has reaffirmed the Vatican’s criticism of a body that represents U.S. nuns which the Church said was tainted by “radical” feminism, dashing hopes he might take a softer stand with the sisters.
On Monday the group’s leaders met Archbishop Gerhard Ludwig Mueller, the new head of the Vatican’s doctrinal department, and Archbishop Peter Sartain of Seattle, who has been assigned by the Vatican to correct the group’s perceived failings.
In April 2012, the doctrinal department criticized the LCWR for challenging bishops and for being “silent on the right to life,” saying it had failed to make the “Biblical view of family life and human sexuality” a central plank of its agenda.
The nuns supported President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform, part of which makes insurance coverage of birth control mandatory, while U.S. bishops opposed it.
That’s progressive, right?
