Nuns Doing Too Much Good, Not Hating Enough

“I’m stunned,” said Sister Simone Campbell, executive director of Network, a Catholic social justice lobby founded by sisters. Her group was also cited in the Vatican document, along with the Leadership Conference, for focusing its work too much on poverty and economic injustice, while keeping “silent” on abortion and same-sex marriage.

“Hey nuns! Stop helping poor people so much, and start dedicating more time to hot button issues that won’t actually accomplish anything except remind everyone that the Catholic Church is against things! Who do you think you are, a bunch of Mother Theresas!?” — The Vatican (Photo: keepwadling/Flickr)
