Nun has refused to meet with doctrine committee, Cardinal Wuerl reveals

Catholic World News - October 31, 2011

The chairman of the US bishops’ doctrine committee has revealed that Sister Elizabeth Johnson has not responded to three invitations to discuss her book, Quest for the Living God. The nine bishops who are members of the committee recently reaffirmed “that on several critical points the book is seriously inadequate as a presentation of the Catholic understanding of God.”

Sister Johnson has complained that committee members have refused to meet with her.

“I reiterate my offer as chairman of the Doctrine Committee to meet with Sister Johnson,” Cardinal Wuerl said. “As a woman religious and theologian, she is a valued member of the Church.”

    Wait a minute, I thought liberal theologians were all for "dialog" and "openness." Isn't the word "refuse" out of their vocabulary?
