The Vatican reprimanded the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, a group representing nearly all of America’s nuns, for falling out of line with church teachings and promoting “radical feminist themes,” according the Associated Press. Its criticism focused on the group’s statements that questioned church teachings on homosexuality and male-only priesthood, as well as for speaking little on other church issues such as abortion and euthanasia. Response to the crackdown has been largely negative, both in and out of the church.
