  •  Ask the nuns, Vatican crushes Christian values (6+ / 0-)
    Vatican City: The Vatican on Tuesday denied there were any internal divisions over its crackdown on the largest umbrella group of U.S. nuns after a top Vatican official complained that he had been sidelined by the reform project.

    The head of the Vatican's office for religious orders, Cardinal Joao Braz de Aviz, was quoted over the weekend as saying his office wasn't consulted or even advised by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith about its decision to overhaul the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, which represents 80 percent of American sisters. He said the crackdown had caused him "much pain."
