To the individual who sent me an anonymous response to my recent letter to the editor regarding my appreciation of Sister Simone Campbell and the LCWR. Because you chose not to sign your letter I could not answer the questions you asked of me.
What bothered me most of all, was not your chastisement of me but your total disrespect of all U.S. nuns. Your words were absolutely unfounded.
You called the nuns a “bunch of old hags wearing regular clothes, jewelry, and butch hairdos.” You went on to say “Duluth and Little Falls, etc., are home to more of these old bags.” you called “...Sister Carol Keehan (another old bag) a stooge of Obama.”
I have been informed by a Presentation Sister friend of mine that Vatican II told the nuns to go back to their foundress and that an Irish Sister, Nano Nagle, never wore a habit. From the same nun, she contacted a canon lawyer and she estimates 85-90 percent of U.S. nuns are members of the LCWR.
You found my address, so please find my phone number and give me a call and I will answer your questions.
