Pope: American Nuns are Radical Feminists

When I first heard this, I heard “none” instead of “nun” and thought “well, yeah!”

Then I realized that it was “nun” … and actually, I have the same reaction.

I come from a long line of nuns and priests, and I’m sure my nun-ancestors are not exactly radical feminists, but a lot of other nuns I know are. In fact its been a long time since I’ve met a nun who was not. That probably says more about who I hang out with than it does about nuns in general.

The point of this news, however, is seen in the papal comment that “radical feminism” will “risk distorting faith in Jesus and his loving Father who sent his Son for the salvation of the world.”

So, there you have it. Officially, the main form of Christianity world wide is explicitly anti-feminist, which makes it anti women.

Soon after releasing the report, the pope had his feet washed by a prostitute.

    I don’t understand how a radical, or any other type of feminist can pledge her life to denial of her sexuality and to a celibate marriage to an imaginary abusive husband. Someone needs to explain how that could possibly jobe with feminism.

    That can’t be right.

  3. Truth Teller says:

    You sure take a lot leeway with other people’s opinions. You say, “…the main form of Christianity world wide is explicitly anti-feminist, which makes it anti women.” How does being anti-feminist make one anti-woman? Free your mind, blowhole.

  4. Greg Laden says:

    Anti-feminist is anti woman. You are dismissed.
