Skip to comments.Nuns With a New Creed: Environmentalism
Posted on 10/18/2013 7:36:40 PM PDT by marshmallow
Every woman in this story is confoundingly non-descript. Short hair, often grey. Conservative dress. Unmarried; soft-spoken. Most are well into their 70s, and all will tell you that their way of life is dying out. They will also tell you, with surprising conviction, that the world is in peril.
They are Roman Catholic sisters, from a variety of orders Dominican, Mercy, Passionist but dont think Whoopie Goldberg or a young Sally Field. While many of their aged peers are living out their days in quiet convents, these women are digging gardens and offsetting carbon. Theyre as well-versed in solar and geothermal technology as they are in the Gospels of Luke and John, and some wear Carhartts and work boots like theyre habits. At the heart of the womens action is a belief that the changing climate and world demand a new kind of vocation that Ave Marias wont cut it anymore, but maybe clean energy will. Called Green Sisters, or Sisters of Earth, they are pushing the bounds of their tradition toward a new, and deeply spiritual, kind of environmentalism.
The Judeo-Christian tradition is so beautiful, and it has such wisdom, but it doesnt have a lot to say about fracking, Miriam MacGillis, a Dominican sister in her mid-70s, told me. We were eating lunch at Genesis Farm, an earth literacy center in Blairstown, N.J., that MacGillis founded in 1980. Our mesclun mix and roasted squash came from fields just across the road where, in 1982, MacGillis launched one of the first community supported agriculture programs in the country. Theres some wisdom in the Scriptures, like how you treat your neighbor, and being kind and compassionate, she continued. But they took for granted that the earth was there to be their resource. In this regard, MacGillis is...........

These liberal Democrats will devote themselves to fighting anything, anything, ANYTHING but abortion.
We were eating lunch at Genesis Farm
and our Holy Water CAUGHT ON FIRE!!!!!!!
Haven’t you heard? Abortion is a planet-saving technology.
I cant’ wait to read their drivers review of the Tesla electric vehicle.
They should keep to breaking rulers over little kids hands.
They’re good at that.
Especially Irish nuns.
I read the article. Earthly, devilish women.
It’s all in Paul’s Letter to the Frackers.
“The Judeo-Christian tradition is so beautiful, and it has such wisdom, but it doesn’t have a lot to say about fracking.”
My head literally snapped back when I read that and then I immediately glanced at the top of the article to see if it was a satire piece. It’s hard to believe this is a quote from a nun in her mid-70s. The only reason (supposed) servants of God would have such an earthly focus is if they weren’t true believers of the gospel. Fair enough, but why would you dedicate your life to something you didn’t believe in?
The high priest of climate change Algore would be happy!
These nuns don’t worship the Holy Father but Mother Earth
So they aren’t really Catholic
Now I would pay to see nuns driving a Tesla on the Top Gear test track:)
Yeah they love the rulers don’t they. Thanks to Sister Mary Midget my knuckles reach arthritis earlier than the rest of me:)
The Protestant C. S. Lewis said in his book the “Screwtape Letters” that one of the best ways to tempt or just distract Christians is with the “Christianity and” argument.
Christianity and Government, Christianity and the Environment, Christianity and Whatever. Before long it changes to The Environment and Christianity and then just the Environment.
They’re to worship God and listen to the Holy Father.
There they are... not only bringing back old pagan heresies, but recreating the wheel.
The reason towns and cities grew up around monasteries for $400 sisters?
And once upon a time, every religious place that had land planted... It was kinda how they ate and fed others without.
But life started when the sisters did what they wanted instead of God.
You know how it goes. It’s always in-house.
Korah, mind you a Levite says ‘Hey Moses, you don’t have to sit on the chair all day, we could help you out with that’; (What’s really going on) After all, God gave me a great job to do in service to him... but I want your job. BTW, I think you’re getting a big head and may be lording it over us. After all, we’re all holy here,
So he hooks up with a couple of Southside non-Levite partners, Dathan and Abiram to form Occupy Moses role... never mind Moses never chose the role and God chose it for him.
Long story short, ground munch for the head community organizers, ashes for the 250 that actually had the nerve to burn incense and cross the line. God went 1968 Democratic Convention on them (but much better and to the point).
Then the people had the nerve to complain about it...
Plague for you... with some intercession after a while to stop it.
Even our father in faith Moses slipped up when God told him to SPEAK to the rock re: water. But no, he hit it not only once, but twice. Guess who didn’t get to the promised land?
Sometimes the 2x4 has to be used.
Don’t get me started on Balaam. Hey Lord, can I curse your people for this guy here? Lord: No. That it... nope. Comes back again (it helps he was offered more bling btw), the nerve. Lord, can I do this or what? Lord: Alright, but only do what I tell you. Balaam: Um... yeah, okay. So he goes for seven times, holy spirit and all that, couldn’t curse them if he wanted to, no curse.
But yeah, you guessed it. He gives Balak some inside baseball, ‘You know how you beat them?’, “Get the women in, get them to sin, worship Baal, etc.”
But hey, can’t trust some Syrians.
Until today, scripture telling the end before the beginning, you have this member in church who has envys that one and gossips over here and yada, yada.
Sisters, know today whom you are serving.
Long story short... again, sister has too much time on her hands.
de Chardin through Fr. Berry strikes again... with Pantheism.
I challenge any of you to make it through her Fate of the Earth hours of audio online...
The Wince Article:
BTW, this siter was involved in many international, globalist orgs. years ago. I have to find it on one of my hand drives.
bunch of old hippies that’s what
satan has invaded the Catholic church
saving the planet is quite arrogant...let them stop hurricanes, earthquakes, mudslides, tornados, sunammis,flooding, shoo away any comets that might head our way, and gain a little humility...
