Get Ready For A Shocker, Sports Fans!
Well, at least she didn't call him "The Great"

What do you do with a gal who --

~ Refers to Pope John Paul II an “unbelievable misogynist.”

~ Also states that the former pontiff "did not like women and spent the entirety of his 26 years as pope working to put them in their 'place.'"

~ Describes herself as a “cafeteria Catholic”.

~ She wrote on the Sacrament of confession that she had done “a number of things that the Catholic church (sic) would technically consider confessable sins, although I don't necessarily think they're bad.”

~ She wrote, “The idea behind Reconciliation is that one should only confess those sins for which one is actually sorry and desires absolution.” (emphasis mine)

~ Has referred to the College of Cardinals as "... a bunch of old conservative guys who generally share the most recent pope’s reactionary approach to gender politics".

So what do we do with a "Catholic" like this? Simple! Make her the editor of the Archdiocese of Anchorage newspaper!

Mary Gore, assistant to the Anchorage Archbishop Roger L. Schwietz, said “I’m not sure what the Archbishop is going to do”. And in what will shock absolutely none of us, Gore went on to say, "right now Archbishop Schwietz is sticking by his editor."

Who screwed-up and authorized this moron to be consecrated a bishop? Oops, I think we all know the answer to that one.

No worries, Caveman, she obviously does not have what used to be called a properly formed conscience. You shouldn't confess that which you do not feel sorry for. Whether you SHOULD feel sorry for it, that is quite another matter.

Of course, it does beg the question of whether the bishop will feel sorry for his choice of editor.

The late Father Hess once told me that you should confess even the sins you aren't sorry for. It becomes a mattter of obedience.
When you sin, you go to confession and talk to the priest, he'll probably make you feel sorry in more ways than you can imagine. (If he's good.)

Nolan is not going to be fired or even reprimanded. After all, she's been freelancing for them "for many years". They must know what she's all about by now.

Yes, they know what she's all about. Those of us who have read her writing know that she is an ariticulate, funny, educated young catholic who checks her facts and reports honestly and clearly. As an editor of a Catholic university newspaper she won several awards for her community reporting and editing. Whether or not you like her politics, you will not be able to fault her professionalism or skill. Thanks for your Christian concern.

How appropriate.
