The Ghost Of Emmett Kelly Returns
That's why I'm afraid of clowns

Here's some of a rather disturbing article from LifeSiteNews.com; (Emphasis mine) Jesuit U. of Detroit Mercy Criticized for Keeping Pro-Abort Nun Board Member

DETROIT, Michigan, April 15, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The University of Detroit Mercy, a Jesuit Catholic institution, has come under fire for failing to remove links to pro-abortion groups on its website, as well as for keeping a renowned pro-abortion, pro-same-sex "marriage" nun on its Board of Trustees.

Links to Planned Parenthood and the National Organization for Women (NOW) are still listed in two places: "career & professional resources" and "external sites of interest."

The student advocacy group suggested that the school's insistence in keeping the links may be related to the presence of Sr. Margaret Farley, a Sister of Mercy, on its Board of Trustees. Farley, who earned her Ph.D. at Yale Divinity School, was one of 40 Catholic religious who infamously signed a 1984 statement by "Catholics for Choice" upholding abortion as justifiable from a Catholic standpoint. Several of the co-signers were subsequently excommunicated.

Since then, Farley has published her dissention from Catholic Church teaching on several key issues, including abortion, homosexuality, same-sex "marriage," masturbation, sterilization, divorce, and women priests. Many of these viewpoints are available in her 2006 book "Just Love: A Framework for Christian Sexual Ethics
," in which Farley challenges the "simpler ways of interpreting human experience" of traditional Catholic values on marriage and sexuality, with a new framework for "just" sexual gratification outside of marital relations and family life.

“What type of faith-damaging message does this send to Catholic college students?" questioned TFP Student Action. "How can we expect the next generation to respect innocent life when professors like Dr. Jane Schaberg and board members like Sister Farley publicly reject Church teaching and Natural Law on procured abortion?"

Um, she might be considered beautiful if she wasn't all about death.

What a nasty woman. Sister of No Mercy is more accurate.

As always I have to wonder why in the heck they claim to be Catholic when they can't stand Catholicism. She belongs to the Church of Me, Right Now, Dammit.

Ick.
