Well, finally, someone in the Catholic Church has the nuts to stop squawking about irrelevant shit and stand up for the social justice principles which have kept that religious firm afloat for nearly 2,000 years. Of course, it was the women religious. The nuns. The religious orders who made American Catholicism. They were the cheap labor which countered Protestant proselytization efforts, enabled the development of an infrastructure of schools and hospitals, and made certain that Catholicism had a vibrant family community. Unlike the pedophile patriarchs, who seem to seek public status more than servitude. As the women say in their statement, even if you oppose abortion, that is another fight, and this victory would most likely reduce abortion, not increase it.
Get out the Rulers, please!
