OK then. Were I in their shoes, I would be doing such.
Because the way it appears from outside the church right now, this Sr. Keenan is being held up as the “authority” for Catholic charitable medical facilities by the Obama administration. She’s the one, more than any other I see in public, who is undermining the RCC’s doctrine and faith. The issue is that she’s trapping all employers who have faith-based issues into supporting whatever socialized medicine bureaucrats deem fit and necessary.
Including, in the future, euthanasia, because that’s where socialized schemes end up.
If I were working for a company (Let’s call it ABC Widgets Inc) and I were, let’s say, a senior manager of paint colors of widgets... and I started trying to negotiate something (like a merger) that needed the express approval and involvement of the VP’s and C-level people... I should be fired.
That’s how this comes across to me. Sr. Keenan is effectively trapping the RCC and their missions, hospitals, charities, etc into a policy which the highest levels of the organization do not support, condone or tolerate.
Why is she still in that position?
I could not agree more but I think Cardinal-designate Dolan has made it clear that Sr. Keenan is not going to have the last word.
I guess Rome lost the heresy form. It should be there somewhere.
