Vatican Condemns Nun’s Support For Marriage Equality: ‘This Opinion Is Not Acceptable’

The Vatican is continuing its crackdown on American nuns and has denounced Sister Margaret A. Farley for her book, “Just Love: A Framework for Christian Sexual Ethics.” The office has condemned the book, which argues that “same-sex relationships and activities can be justified according to the same sexual ethic as heterosexual relationships and activities,” as an unacceptable position inconsistent “with authentic Catholic theology.” This statement comes as only a part of a larger effort on the part of the Vatican to reign in “radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith.” A majority of Americans disagrees with the Vatican.
