|Spong: "By entering into the American political process so blatantly and by forcing the issue of contraceptives into that debate so centrally, the Catholic bishops have blurred the lines between church and state rather considerably." Although provoked by the late crackdown on Roman Catholic Nuns by conservative Vatican clerics, (Episcopal) Bishop Spong assails the intrusion of the dogma of conservative Christian groups into matters of governance. This is a thoughtful commentary illustrated with contemporary and historical facts. [You may have to sign up to view the entire essay.] As to Nuns vs. Vatican -- I'm betting on the Nuns for the long haul. And if Rome finds fault with them, perhaps the Anglicans will welcome their true and lively faith.|
