As more cases of sexual assault on nuns come to light, the LCWR calls for change

Pope Francis has publicly acknowledged the problem of priests and bishops sexually abusing nuns. Although grateful, the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), who represent about 80 percent of Catholic sisters in the US, say more needs to be done. They propose new reporting guidelines be established so that the abused nuns are met with ’compassion and are offered safety’.

officially there is nothing women can't go 5minutes without crying for attention. Screw all the boys that have suffered, can somebody think of the nuns! (that are adults and perfectly capable of thinking for themselves).

"The largest association of religious sisters in the United States called Thursday for an overhaul of the male-led leadership structure of the Catholic Church, after Pope Francis publicly acknowledged the problem of priests and bishops sexually abusing nuns." Just wondering, what's stopping these people from forming their own religion? Anybody can do it.

can the church just crumble already. I've looked forward to seeing their absolute downfall for a while. I'm hoping it's in my life time, all this is just peanuts. sexual abuse in the churches is probably much more rampant and horrid than what's being discovered.
