Sister Simone Campbell is the director of NETWORK a Catholic social justice lobby.
Sister Campbell’s talk was dull. All Saints Catholic Church in Portland is dull. The architecture was dull. The tiny crucifix (on a stand) was dull.
Why the heck does the Archdiocese of Portland need a social justice speaker in the first place? I guess the United States Bishops are hen-pecked by the Catholic Feminists. Women can’t be ordained. I know! Let’s throw out the Body and Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Our Savior — because he’s a male symbol of the “patriarchy” they hate and fear — and replace it all with Social Justice blather! That’ll fill the pews!
“LIVE YOUR SOCIAL JUSTICE! I LIVED MY SOCIAL JUSTICE IN THE PARKING LOT”—Sr. Simone
No, actually, Sister, that’s “charity.”
SISTER IS INSPIRED BY IRAN’s AHMADINEJAD
Your Editor asked Sister Simone a question.
“On the NETWORK website [removed] you reflect on your meeting with President Ahmadinejad during his visit to New York last year. You write, ‘I think I was most touched by his comments about poverty…how…there is a denial of someone’s human rights.” [emphasis added]
‘Sister, how can you justify being touched by him when he wants to obliterate Israel?’
“He didn’t talk about Israel then.”
She didn’t want to discuss anything further and abruptly ended the conversation.
- Note: Campbell’s comment is also cited here http://www.getreligion.org/2010/03/healthcare-nunsense/ .
We at Fidelity and Action question NETWORK’s hyperfocus on “Government Action Needed for the environment, the ecology, and the environment. ”
This just in: the Portland Archdpdx Justice & Peace ministry lists the platform [removed]. Wow. Now that’s something all the Catholic Saints can certainly reflect upon why they were martyred!
Sister Simone gives lip service to Catholic social teaching but she is pro-abortion. She has ties to Nancy Pelosi and the apostates Call To Action.
Thanks once again to Oregon Catholic Citizens for their contribution to this story.
