Ryan’s budget “rejects church teaching about solidarity, inequality, the choice for the poor, and the common good. That’s wrong,” said Campbell, executive director of Network, a Catholic social justice lobby. Nuns on the Bus claims that the Ryan budget would raise taxes on low-income families while cutting taxes for millionaires and corporations, push families into poverty, and kick 8 million people off of food stamps.”
Disgusted by the myth: Girl Scout Cookie Sales go to Planned Parenthood – Archbishop Joe Naumann slammed the doors on the little girls. Some say he has control issues.
Had he done his due diligence he would have discovered The Truth
Girl Scouts is such an iconic organization that it’s easy to overlook how daring an idea it was for founder Juliette Gordon Low to gather those first 18 girls in that troop in Savannah, Georgia. It was 1912, after all, and women wouldn’t earn the right to vote for another eight years.

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) –
Bishop Robert Finn, who was convicted three years ago of failing to report suspected child abuse, has resigned, but some in the Catholic community are still angry.
The Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests maintains that Kansas City, KS, Archbishop Joseph Naumann, who was appointed temporary leader of the Kansas City-St. Joseph Diocese after Finn resignation, isn’t the right choice.
SNAP members say Naumann is part of a child sex abuse cover-up that happened at the Catholic Archdiocese in KCK. They are calling for systemwide change in the Catholic church.
They held a protest at the Kansas City-St Joseph Diocese after they found out that Finn will preside over the ordinations of seven deacons next month due to a scheduling conflict for his temporary replacement.
Naumann will be leading the ordination ceremony of deacons in the KCK diocese he leads at the same time the May 23 ordinations are scheduled for the Missouri diocese.
SNAP members feel that makes Finn’s resignation uselessControl

The L. C. W. R. report also described the conditions contributing to the alienation of women from church and society and their consequent need of reconciliation with both groups. Let me outline briefly some of the alienating factors described in the report:
1. Patriarchy has been a prime concept for the perception and organization of reality. Patriarchy as a worldview of its very nature assumes the alienation of women. It places the male in the center of reality and makes the masculine normative.

The old women – truly dedicated souls- did not sign up to be Real Estate tycoons. They wanted to be nuns… To teach and be nurses.
Bam! All of sudden they have become responsible for a very important school in California! They fired the Head of School who was way too progressive. Sports and Girls – indeed!
The Sisters of Iowa: Do they pretend to know anything about California, Silicon Valley, single sex schools in Northern California?
They appear to be clueless about the sharp decline enrollments at one school. One huge reason 8th grade girls are not enrolling is because there are no sports facilities. Smart young women who want to succeed in high school and then college know the high importance of a well rounded student…
“Sal the Ultra Conservative” – not really Opus Dei – came to San Francisco and the city quaked.*
His reputation preceded him. The DUI in San Diego did nothing to enhance his image.
He made mistakes and stepped on more toes than a tap dancer on ice skates: Train Wreck.
His buddy over at Star of the Sea was equally alienating and not welcomed by the parish. After too many debacles – egregious errors He was asked to leave.
Sal and House of Cardinal Burke are great friends.
They are calling Catholic San Francisco Foggy Bottoms…and worse.
After word started to spread in early 2015 that Cordileone planned to impose “morality clauses” on teachers, critics, including parents and students, formed an opposition group called #TeachAcceptance.
The San Francisco Chronicle’s editorial board and columnists have repeatedly castigated his position and hundreds turned out at rallies to condemn his actions. Despite that revolt against his leadership, Cordileone is undaunted in his push to recalibrate what Catholic education should be – or about giving his perceptions of what it means to be Catholic in a city that is known for its welcoming tolerance of just about any lifestyle other than overt conservatism….”

A teacher who came out as a transgender man at a Catholic high school in San Francisco has been allowed to keep his job by the order of the nuns that runs the school.
An order of the Sisters of Mercy announced its support for Gabriel Bodenheimer, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
“This is significant for us; we did not take this lightly,” said Sister Laura Reicks, president of the 16-state region of the Sisters of Mercy West Midwest Community. “We feel because of our values, the choice was this, but that didn’t mean it was easy.”
Supporting the dignity of each person—regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or gender identification—aligned with the order’s values, Reicks said
