Left wing 'sistas' take to the air and let down their hair! Unorthodox nuns yammer for 2 hours on Milt Rosenberg's WGN radio show

 

5/10/2004 9:36:00 PM - CCI

 

There's no escaping left wing nuns these days. On May 7, WGN Chicago, radio host Milt Rosenberg hosted a discussion with Sr. Carolyn Farrell, B.V.M., head of the Gannon Center for Women at Loyola University Chicago, Sr. Joan McGlinchey of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, Vicar for Religious in the Archdiocese of Chicago, and Cheryl Reed, author of the new book "Unveiled: The Hidden Lives of Nuns."

 

Traditional Catholic listeners had ample opportunity to be appalled at what was said on the show. WGN listener and Chicagoan Terry Hodges observed that "the two nuns who appeared were quite representative of those American nuns whom they themselves called "progressive." The two hour discussion revealed them quite tolerant of legalized abortion since they understand women to be free "moral agents," open to legalizing homosexual unions, women's ordination, yada, yada, yada. Needless to say, neither wears a religious habit. On several occasions during the broadcast, they could be heard snickering under their breath when the host asked them where they stood on several traditional Church teachings and discipline."

 

During the program, guest and author Cheryl Reed revealed she was raised Catholic but converted to the Russian Orthodox sect. When Rosenberg asked why she left the Catholic Church, she said primarily because of Church teaching on papal infallibility and birth control issues. Mr. Hodges observed that "after (Ms. Reed) praised a local Sister of Mercy, described in her book as a student of Buddhism and collector of Buddha statues, I enjoyed the squirming when the (Jewish) host asked if the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith would be as approving of her hobby."

 

The irony wasn't lost on the listening audience. "The highlight came when an articulate woman called expressing her disgust that a vicar for Cardinal George would be tolerant of abortion, "said Hodges. "Their conciliaresque responses reminded one of the Daley/Kennedy/Kerry stammering on the issue."

 

Subsequent to the show, Milt Rosenberg expressed interest in hosting a program including Catholic nuns who actually BELIEVED in the teachings of the Catholic Church. Any volunteers out there?
