Quote of the Day

Mme. Dowd via our pal Montag:

... The church leadership never recoiled in horror from pedophilia, yet it recoils in horror from outspoken nuns...

I have two aunts and one great aunt who are/were nuns. All did missionary work throughout their careers in some of the most impoverished places in the world. For them, the gospel came a distant second to doing the right thing for the people who lived there, even if it regularly brought them up against the local priests and church hierarchy.
