    What, no agenda item to discuss beating up on American nuns for being radical feminists because they supported improved healthcare for the poor?

    The Conference increasingly ought to be viewed as a tax sheltered special interest partisan political organization distributing talking points and campaigning from the pulpit.

    When they address the issues, forgiveness must involve consequences for their sins including reporting felonies, removal from the priesthood and excommunication.
