RE: The ones in our ranks don’t even bother to argue that what they are doing is defensible according to Church teaching. They either publicly denounce Church teaching or they hide.
Not all of them..
‘Radical’ Nuns Supporting Abortion, Gay Marriage Meet With US Bishops
An “open” and “cordial” meeting was held this past weekend by three U.S. Catholic bishops and the Catholic sisters whom the Vatican has called “radical” and “feminist” for their support of same-sex marriage and abortion.
The Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) officers met with Seattle Archbishop J. Peter Sartain, Springfield, Ill., Bishop Thomas Paprocki and Toledo, Ohio, Bishop Leonard Blair, all members of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).
Annmarie Sanders, Director for Communications for the LCWR, shared with The Christian Post the full statement from the group, which was said to address the doctrinal assessment of the LCWR by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF). Sanders noted that further discussions were planned for a later date, although the specific issues that might have been brought up with were not revealed.
Father Bob Pierson, Gay Priest, On Why Catholics Should Support Same-Sex Marriage (VIDEO)
The LCWR, which is not a canonical organization but a private one, has publicly disagreed with Church teaching.
Just as I said these sorts of people do.
Robert Pierson voluntarily withdrew from the Catholic ministry and lives in an Episcopal retreat house now.
You prove my point again.
Far from arguing from Catholic doctrine and tradition, these people argue against both.
