Religious Mutiny: Rebel Nuns Leading
The Way For Dissent Against Bishops

Fr. Z Reveals That Bishops Are At War With The "Magisterium of Nuns!"

In the debate about Obamacare, many catholic women religious failed in their Catholic identity test. They rather chose to give cover to catholic pro-abortion democrats in Congress so that they could salve the consciences and vote in favor of legislation that would fund abortion. All this despite the admonishment and warning of the Catholic bishops of the United States.

These women religious set themselves up as an alternate, parallel "magisterium" over and against that of the bishops’ authority to teach. This is their Magisterium of Nuns.

The National Catholic Fishwrap (Reporter)has chosen to underscore one of their favorite topics by running a story provided by the Religion News Service.

The story, by Daniel Burke, is entitled "Catholics face ‘mutiny’ over teachings on gay marriage".

I will spare you the details of the article which you can read on your own.

But this is the salient part.

After describing initiatives to defend the true nature of marriage, for example, Archbp. Nienstedt’s good project to send 400,000 DVDs to Catholics in Minnesota, we read:

Catholic gay-rights supporters have been emboldened by the example of nuns who bucked the bishops by supporting the health-care overhaul Congress passed last March, said Francis DeBernardo, executive director of New Ways Ministry, one of the groups involved in Equally Blessed.

"People are using that as a touchstone," he said. "They see that the nuns were courageous and they feel like they can be courageous. Courage is contagious."

The abortion issue is now feeding into the unnatural "marriage" issue. Are we surprised? Really?

If the Catholic bishops in the United States needed a little reminder about how many of the communities of women religious are not on the same page, look no further.

To any bishops reading: There is no common ground with the women religious who are trying to undermine your authority. Dialogue serves the purposes of the left. They are at war with you.

The Magisterium of Nuns does not teach for the Church. Our bishops teach for the Church.
