Don't yell at nuns for helping poor by PurplePhoneixStar Don't yell at nuns for helping poor by PurplePhoneixStar
Recently the Pope repremanded US nuns for caring too much about the poor and social injustice when they were not out bashing gays or yelling at women getting abortions: [link]



What really gets me is that they are following Jesus there by helping the poor and yet the Pope yells at them :iconjesusfacepalmplz:

They're going out of their way to contradict the Bishops,, how does that in away include fighting social injustice or helping the poor?

The vitriol in the comments on this does makes me really sad - but, knowing so many Apostolic Sisters, and all the great good they do, I just have to thank you for making the stamp.

Really, what it comes down to is the actions and words of a very few Sisters, some of which have been misconstrued... And the fact that, since Vatican 2, the Vatican has had less control over Women Religious.

Goddamned Pope, he's such a frickin hypocrite! How the hell are homosexuality and abortion more important issues than poverty and social injustice? Hope somebody shoots this doctrinal douchebag for his blatant hypocrisy and idiocy (Yeah, I frickin went there, let the flames commence :icontrollfaceplz:)

I know what you mean there :iconfaceeverythingplz: Jesus said help the poor and he was nice to the woman at the well who was not of well reputation if you know what I mean... You would think a pope would know the freaking Bible. :iconheaddeskplz:

That's one thing I hate about Bible Thumpers..They bitch and moan about the things they think they need to cry about, yet they don't wanna follow Jesus' examples. The only things I like about the Bible itself are some of the stories and the 10 Commandments(I don't really follow them that closely,but I'm OK with them), the rest is just..UGH! Besides, if the Pope himself is not being screwed by some random dude or preggo with someone's parasite, then why the hell should he care? POPE, Y U NO STFU AND LET NUNS HELP PEOPLE?! :iconwhyyounoplz:

Exactly. Not to mention shaming a family in front of the whole goddamn country and having them kicked out of their church, simply because that frickin parasite that ended up inside their 9 year old daughter due to rape by her stepfather was "A GIFT FROM GOD!"

Ummm the Bible says rape and incest is bad. I'm sure Jesus would forgive that girl and not give her a hard time in that case. That fetus would have killed that girl, so both girl and beloved fetus would be dead.

I know, but tell that to the moronic pious pricks who constantly hound women and girls over that. Of course Jesus would forgive her and her family, but then again, leave it to society to change Jesus' words. More likely, IF she had survived the whole horrific affair, how much you wanna bet the rest of her community would still ridicule her for that? I knew 2 girls who were rape victims and they were still treated like shit, even though they didn't abort their babies and everybody knew what happened to them. Their kids were treated just as badly and constantly reminded of what disgusting women their mothers were. She kept the fucking thing you guys, why are you still bothering her? The next US president we get better make sure Church and State stay seperate, otherwise we'll all fucked even worse than before.

Stupid Pope... you know why he is so angry and worried about gays and abortions? Because he hates being gay and feels like he would rather have been aborted. Since it didn't happen to him, then no one should do it. Spoiled brat, that's what he is!

Flash news, "dear" Pope: being gay is natural and there's nothing wrong with it. So shut up and accept yourself. Plus, you're not a woman, you know nothing about pregnancy, so you don't get to talk about abortions!

Damn, even US nuns are better than that jackass.

He's just a figurehead. They need someone to be considered "the holiest" so that people like those poor nuns will be more willing to follow orders without question.
When someone who is supposed to be better than you tells you to do something, are you not even a little tempted to do so?

the vatican has issued a stern warning to pioneering latin american liberation theologian jon sobrino
sending a formal notification claiming two of his books may cause harm to the faithful
sobrino was formerly theological adviser to the late archbishop oscar romero
gunned down by u s backed death squads for his advocacy on behalf of the poor
colleagues of sobrino are expressing shock but no surprise at the vatican s move
some say that it is part of a calculated attempt to suppress alternative voices
in 1989 Sobrino narrowly escaped an attack that left six of his fellow jesuits dead
plus their housekeeper and her daughter

I believe the pope's not even in charge at the Vatican anymore. Its more Cardinal Sodano and his ilk. Its a known fact HE was the dumbass who came up with, "Women priests are as bad as pedophilic priests."

Now as to why the pope hasn't reigned him in? First of Sodano has more friends than Ratizner does. Second we wouldn't want a coup and have Sodano made pope, or hand pick the new one by bullying the more timid.

Although It seems the nuns were more in trouble for doctrine issues than for helping the poor, if you ask me from what I read in that article.

I was taught that even though being homosexual is against the Bible, you were not to treat them worse than normal people. Hate the sin not the sinner.

*sigh* I know, but I'm sick and tired of the priest at our community. I normally try to keep religion out of my day (I'm agnostic simply because I can't chose a faith that appeals to me), but he's really persistent. He keeps yelling stuff about gays needing to be beaten to death or something... And it's really starting to get on my nerves. And I want to take my paint ball gun to his freaking speeches.
Not to mention several of my friends are homosexual and they're completely accepted by everyone at my school. It's just the priest guy who keeps trying to say this same old crap to us over and over again. Seems like he really doesn't care about anyone who isn't heterosexual. Or anyone who isn't Christian for that matter...
It makes me feel kind of ... I don't know... pessimistic I guess, but I just feel like everyone of every faith is out there to punish one another for things that shouldn't even matter.

Can we just agree the Pope has no fucking idea what God himself wants? Let's just go to the Vatican and protest. OCCUPY VATICAN, perhaps~?
