I have not read the Vatican's report on the LCWR, the notoriously liberal, hateful and pro-abortion feminist collective of "religious" women (nuns and sisters) in the U.S. Anyone who's had any dealings with any of these ladies knows that the Christian Faith is the furthest thing from their minds. They worship the Pagan Power Goddess - and her name is not Jesus Christ and she does not demand that we carry a cross. That the Vatican should back down from correcting this group and calling them out - which they apparently did back down from doing - tells you all you need to know about the Church today.
But I'm not commenting on that report, nor do I plan to read it. Why? Because these women are - quite deliberately - sterile. They do not attract new vocations. They are old, angry and bitter. They are on their way out and there are no new "religious" to replace them.
But before we get all complacent about their impending demise, we are often in the same boat.
Much of the Devout Catholic culture is dying. It is as sterile as the LCWR. It cannot reproduce. It is timid, insular, Unreal and in its own way as sick and perverted as the worst of the liberal feminists who are out there.
We do not appeal to normal people. Human beings want life. They want art and music and preaching that is not gelded, not severed from that which generates. In another generation, if there is a reform in the Church, it will not come from the Devout Catholics. For most of us have opted for Safety rather than the Spirit.
