What's up with that?

Why do so many Catholics go on and on about Francis Shaefer? He was some kind of Protestant.

Why is Cardinal Law safe in Rome instead facing his former flock in Boston?

Why do Catholics love Flannery O'Conner so much? Her stuff gave me nightmares as a kid.

Why do so many people who clearly don't love the Faith get themselves ordained or professed as nuns?

What is about working for one's parish that seems to turn so many middle aged women into power tripping hapries?

As to question 4 it's because the good one's get kicked out or are deemed "extremeists"...and you thus have the leftovers.

Those women just might be power tripping harpies at the Hospital Gift Shop.

They are what they are.

(BTW, you might cut them a little slack, you have no idea what sort of nonsense they have to put up with.)

Our Lady of Akita knows why.

Dymphna,

I understand and somewhat relate to the characters in Flannery O'Connor's work. So I love her writing. No nightmares.

Never read her myself.

Swedenhavings its share of that was recently in "the news" .... ugh! A nun had signed the petition of Tina Beattie.

Obviously, I signed the one against Tina Beattie.
