From the article (bolding is mine):

The assessment concluded that the leadership conference had hosted speakers who “often contradict or ignore” church teaching; had never revoked a statement from 1977 that questioned the male-only priesthood, and focused their efforts on serving the poor and disenfranchised, while remaining virtually silent on issues the church considers great societal evils: abortion and same-sex marriage.

It also reprimanded the sisters for making public statements that “disagree with or challenge the bishops, who are the church’s authentic teachers of faith and morals.”

If the bishops are the church's "authentic teachers of faith and morals", then why WOULDN'T the nuns focus on serving the poor and disenfranchised rather than making statements on abortion and same-sex marriage?

The Vatican has decided to launch an attack to rein in what is currently the ONLY part of the Catholic Church that is untouched by scandal and presents the best face of Catholicism to the public.

It boggles the mind.

my formatting is screwed up, sorry - I couldn't figure how to edit to fix it.

I have been thinking about the latest attacks by the Catholic Church patriarchy on nuns and girl scouts. I can't understand the thinking. Is there some strategy here that I am missing or is it pure misogyny and stupidity?

re: #3 Majacita

That's what it boils down in my view. I was baptized Catholic but sent a formal resignation letter to my local parish over this crap. (Funny there are formal processes for the bishops et al to kick you out, but I have not found any formal way for us to get rid of them, or even quit. So I used the business analogy.)
