    as long as it's other people suffering and not them.  They do not like women, do not think of them as equals and have no earthly clue about women's lives.  In their rarefied and totally masculine world, the only feminine representation are statues of the Virgin and the female saints in niches.  

    •  Thankfully there is Sister Simone (2+ / 0-)

      She is an outspoken advocate of helping the poor unlike the privileged priests and bishops.  In my experience it seems like most nuns are Democrats while priests are Republicans.

      •  I always think of the dinner scene (2+ / 0-)

        in the movie version of 'Doubt'  The nuns eat stew and drink milk - the priests sit at an elaborate dinner table with steak, wine and dessert and end drinking whiskey and smoking cigars.  The nuns clear their own dishes, the housekeeper cleans up after the priests.

      •  It's a difference in vows... (1+ / 0-)

        Only nuns take vows of poverty...  Priests can amass all of the wealth they want.  I have known Monsenignors who drive Caddilacs, travel abroad every year & eat at some pretty nice restaurants.  When my Aunt Nell, a nun in Michigan retired, the Church stuck her in this crappy home in Detroit.
