LCWR leader missed chances to affirm Church teaching in NPR interview

Catholic World News - July 23, 2012

Donna Bethell notes that when she was interviewed by National Public Radio, Sister Patricia Farrell, the president of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, was presented with multiple opportunities to make a clear affirmation of Church teaching on issues that included the ordination of women, abortion, contraception, and homosexuality. She did not, leaving questions as to where she stood on each of those issues.

    Of course they won't affirm the Church's position. The left has spent the last forty years or so infiltrating to the highest levels of these congregations. The strong have survived and in their councils do all they can to turn the Church into a clone of the Protestant Episcopal church. In the process, their congregations are dying because the Holy Spirit is sending them no novices.
