    Even if we're criticizing them for things that have nothing at all to do with religion?

    Who is really biased here -- the ones who call out the hypocrites or the ones who defend them even when they molest children and desire the death of women?
    Why do you want to criticize the nun who recommended and approved the abortion?

    Yet another example as to why the Catholic Church is one big facepalm.

    A nun recommends and approves an abortion, a catholic staff in a catholic hospital perform the abortion, all to save the mother's life, with a reverend cannon lawyer steeping up to defend this nun, and you call that a face-palm?

    Are the higher-ups going to overturn this? If so, I will retract my comment. But I'm not holding my breath.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    The opinion of the Catholic Church is:
    Operations, treatments, and medications that have as their direct purpose the cure of a proportionately serious pathological condition of a pregnant woman are permitted when they cannot be safely postponed until the unborn child is viable, even if they will result in the death of the unborn child.

    This is why a nun and a Catholic staff performed an abortion in a Catholic hospital.

    This can't be the first time you've seen any kind of official step out of line and be wrong.

    The nun was right, the higher ups at the Catholic church who excommunicated her were wrong. It's what I've been saying this whole time. It's just another example of how the Catholic Church is far off base on many issues.
    Heck they just "forgave" Copernicus a week ago.

    Hey come on. The Catholic Church can't be held responsible for the actions of 99% of its leaders.

    Naw not really, organized religion as a whole has a **** ton of double standards. Catholicism is everyone's minds right now because of the whole pedophile crap.
