Yeah, ain't that a snitch ?


It all boils down to the fact that a retrogressive, authoritarian, dominational institution will always react against change, irrespective of how necessary, humane and sensible that change is.  The "party line" and absolute, unquestioning obedience, must be the operating norm.  Notice that there seems to be a working "arrangement" between Fundies, LDSers, and the RCC --- all three groups known for their domination & control tendencies.


If you ask me, the RC sisters should tell the Vatican to go to hell and join TEC.


Of course, no-one asked me.

I wish they would; they would enrich us beyond measure (you may have guessed I have a soft spot in my heart for nuns). Most of the Sisters I've met have been brave and holy, down-to-earth and funny.

It seems to me that there might be a Schism not to far off.

We have the Order of Julian of Norwich to which one of our members belongs. Episcopal Carmel of St Teresa. The Order of St Helena.  And others. Surely the RCs would find a home in TEC.


Or they could have their own. The Order of the Thankful Popeless. Or somesuch.
