Posted on 06/13/2012 6:18:01 AM PDT by marshmallow
Speaking at a Jesuit parish in Charlotte, the executive director of the social justice lobby Network disparaged Vatican officials and US bishops as inexperienced in pastoral work and revealed that she is uncomfortable describing herself as pro-life because of my pride.
After speaking on the importance of civility in political discourse, Sister Simone Campbell dismissed the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faiths efforts to reform the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) as a Vatican kerfuffle and, in the words of the Charlotte diocesan newspaper, scorned the US bishops for their continued opposition to the health insurance law.
In February, Network issued a statement applaud[ing] the administrations accommodation of religious conscience objections to the provision of insurance coverage for contraceptives to women at no cost to them.
The Charlotte diocesan newspaper also reported that
Sister Campbell questioned many Catholics focus on that one issue [abortion], criticizing the pro-life movement as not considering the entire spectrum of Catholic social teaching, but then she acknowledged that "progressive" Catholics like herself have contributed to the discord between pro-life and pro-social justice Catholics.
"I have allowed a very narrow perspective on what is life, because I actually feel like I'm going to develop a rash or something if I use 'life' in that broader sense," she said.
She has avoided framing social justice concerns as "pro-life" issues, she said, "because I don't want to be thought of as in (the pro-life) camp. Because of my pride, as opposed to my faith."

Parse these words slowly and reflect on them a bit.
How can any living, ostensibly sentient creature utter such a logical inconsistency?
This world is being overrun with humans having few or no logical facilities.
I guess the flower power orders will simply die out, to be replaced by small, orthodox orders.
So be it. Sad to think of what used to be, though.
Oh, shucks. I clicked on this hoping it was another update about Sister Vicki - my favorite of the dumb nun names.
Or also, once these rebellous sisters RETIRE and they WILL, the more devout younger could very well take over and do the NEEDED reforms to bring them back in line.
Retire or expelled
Wasn’t Lucifer’s pride the reason for his rebellion against God?
She doesn’t want to be associated with the “pro-life camp”, no doubt because she believes it is dominated by the guys with the ugly pictures, and clinic bombers, and rabid right wing Bible thumpers. So as not to be thought of as “one of them”, she has been ashamed to stick up for innocent human life. The “in” crowd won’t like her any more if she has common cause with “those” people.
Grown woman on the outside. Juvenile on the inside.
Jesus did not hesitate to preach the Gospel because someone might lump him in with “those” extremist Zealot party members.
She’s totally forgotten about following Christ. She’s determined to be thought of as smart and progressive. Being religiously affiliated is now just the source of her paycheck, housing, a retirement plan.
Pride and disobedience—equally corrupting.
Listening to this lesbo, it sounds as if the Vatican has just yanked her sheepskin costume off!
Maybe she’s uncomfortable describing herself as “pro-life” because she is anti-life. Why else would she be in favor of mandatory no-price contraceptives?
