Given I just named a Catholic Bishop the “Scum of the Week”, I wasn’t going to dwell on this one very much. However, this week, I’m inclined to just put a blanket label on the Catholic Church as a whole and call them the combined “Scum of the Week”.
A group of Catholic nuns in the U.S. were berated by his “holiness” for having a “radical feminist agenda”. Their “sin”? NOT actively lobbying against gay marriage, and NOT actively coming out and lobbying against abortion. It wasn’t something they actually DID that got them in trouble. They were focused on poverty issues and equal rights.
Silly nuns!! They should KNOW the Catholic Church these days does NOT stand for equality OR care about poverty issues. The nuns were reprimanded for, well, for CARING, and for not acting like bigoted pigs that treat gays like something less than HUMAN BEINGS.
This pope is taking the Catholic Church backwards, not forwards. To berate nuns for talking too much about poverty and equality? Congrats, you are the first Pope that I have bestowed a “Scum of the Week” award to.
