Rosemary's baby

By Diogenes (articles ) | Mar 21, 2003

In her March 21st column in the National Catholic Reporter, radical feminist, Castro-apologist, and longtime dissenter Rosemary Radford Ruether takes on the vexed issue of clerical abuse and warns her readers that she is running "the risk of appearing politically incorrect." Brace yourselves.

"[Archbishop Rembert] Weakland did not dwell on how he had been taken advantage of. Rather he stood before the community and confessed. He then retired from his job as bishop. He did not leave but rather re-entered his Benedictine community, there to spend the rest of his life dealing with his own soul among those whom he could count on to help him."

It is not known whether Katha Pollitt and Frances Kissling have remained on speaking terms with her.
