Troubles with the LCWR
A few months back, I saw a profile about the inquiry on Good Morning America. What a bunch of schlock that was. Still, it pictured these cute little old ladies. Dominicans on Long Island. Aww, aren't they sweet? Mean mean ol church.
Well, I had read in "Making of an Exorcist" that some religious sisters in Amityville had taken up witchcraft. Doesn't surprise me. After seeing the GMA clip, I knew it was those cute little old ladies.
Sure enough, here is a partial transcript of a 1997 radio show from "Living On Earth"
"Sister Jean Clark points to some newly plowed ground with a few green shoots poking through the late winter soil. Growing an organic garden is just one of the ways the Amityville sisters are reconnecting with nature. They perform outdoor rituals on the winter and summer solstices and the spring and autumn equinoxes: ancient Earth festivals which some Catholics still regard as Pagan. And recently, they passed a resolution which expands the definition of their religious community to include the land and its nonhuman inhabitants."
They reject the Eucharist and perform solstice rituals. Why do they even call themselves Catholic any longer?
