The friends of dissent and heresy, the National Coalition of American Nuns (NCAN), is awarding its Margaret Ellen Traxler Award to Sister Louise Lears. Just to make sure we are aware that this public honor is not given in ignorance of her canonical censure, NCAN’s announcement describes Sr. Lears as “placed under interdict by Archbishop Raymond Burke on June 26, 2008 for her support of the priestly ordination of two women”.
NCAN (and I am sure the N should stand for nutty) also supports dissident Rev. Roy Bourgeois and others. Make a stand against Church teaching and I guess you are in running for an award from them.
Hat tip to St. Louis Catholic.
