LCWR and NPR – Airing Dirty Laundry

LCWR and NPR – Airing Dirty Laundry July 23, 2012
Who is getting hung out to dry?
The sisters or the bishops? Or us all?

Check out an article I wrote for Ignitum Today on the LCWR and an interview that their president Sr. Pat Ferrell recently gave on Fresh Air with Terry Gross.

If you are wondering what my angle is, well I try not to have an angle, except that I am a faithful Catholic trying to make sense of these things.

Here is an excerpt:

“I have read several different takes on the interview. On one side of the spectrum an article compared Sr. Pat to a manipulative 7-year old, and on another was a glowing account of the interview as a journalistic “breath of fresh air.” Both accounts left me feeling a bit queasy and depressed at the continued polarization of the Church that is exemplified in the ongoing debate over the LCWR.”
