Catholic feminists live with the ongoing tension of seeking the intellectual freedom to explore theological ideas that liberate women while at the same time maintaining communication with the Catholic institution, said a renowned feminist theologian.
…Her varied scholarship has included books on ecology from a feminist perspective, the history of women and religion in North America, the theological roots of anti-Semitism, the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict, racism and liberation theology. She wrote several articles criticizing Roman Catholic views on sex and reproduction that was underlying its ban on artificial birth control. One of her most recent books is "Integrating Ecofeminism, Globalization and World Religions."
You just got to love The Tidings the weekly newspaper of the Los Angeles Archdiocese which often can’t be distinguished from the National Catholic Reporter. They print a puff piece on a dissenting theologian who is pro-abortion and on the board of Catholics for a Free Choice. Who supports women’s ordination and believes that the Bible is a lie-a collection of
myths-and that "the Bible has to be demythologized"-that is, rewritten from
the feminist perspective. They don’t seem to have a problem on one hand printing an article in support of parental notification for abortion and then print one one favoring a pro-abortion advocate with absolutely no critical overview.
Sure these so-called Catholic feminists live with an ongoing tension. There is always tension between truth and lies. Lies will never result in liberation, but only shackles.
