NPR broadcast examines Vatican demand for reform of LCWR

Catholic World News - April 25, 2012

National Public Radio has broadcast a reasonably balanced examination of the Vatican's call for reform of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious. The NPR program included analysis and commentary by John Allen of the National Catholic Reporter, followed by a discussion featuring two opposing views, from Sister Simone Campbell, the director of the liberal Network lobby; and Donna Bethell, the chairman of the board of Christendom College.

    As I have stated, I heard the part of that broadcast where Sr.Campbell revealed a poor understanding of the role of bishops. She stated they were administrators,never mentioning that they were primarily shepherds. Ms Bethell clearly dilineated their role,and put the nun to shame by exposing her ignorance. Scarey to think they teach the young.
