"Just Tell Them...

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

Excommunicated From The Pedophile Factory, Because She Saved a Life? Go Figure...

In a bizarre twist of logic, Sr. Margaret McBride has been excommunicated from the Catholic Church for allowing an abortion to take place on her watch at a Catholic hospital.

Never mind that the mother's life was in jeopardy. In fact... "According to a hospital document, she had "right heart failure," and her doctors told her that if she continued with the pregnancy, her risk of mortality was "close to 100 percent.""

Further, the woman who was saved by the emergency procedure has four other children at home to care for.

I am appalled. And made painfully aware of the reasons I was forced to leave the church of my upbringing.

Stick to your guns, Sister! You have done nothing wrong and the whole world knows it!! You are my hero!! I only hope the Sisters of Mercy, for whom I have profound respect, stand by you.

  1. You don't need a church to be close to God.

  2. That is true, DE. But you may need one to accomplish what the Sisters of Mercy do. The church (Catholic or otherwise) can be a powerful source of financial resources for... say... running an inner city hospital.

    The shame of this mess is that the good Sister lives her whole life in relative poverty (Mercy vows are stringent) and has run a hospital for a pittance of pay. And now... if excommunicated.... she will have no retirement benefits whatsoever.

    And all the while, child abusing *priests* are retiring on the hard earned and donated cash of the Catholic devout. While simultaneously dipping into the pot for legal fees.

    Totally unfair. And sexist, beyond the pale. Even for a patriarchial system like Catholicism. Shameful.
