All That Is Wrong with the Roman Catholic Church

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/27/opinion/27kristof.html?th&emc=th

We don’t excommunicate priests that pleasure themselves with innocent defenseless young children; in most cases we allow them to continue to be priests no less.  But we do boot a nun who agreed to save a life.  Setting aside ideology in favor of reason for a moment, that unborn child was dead either way.  If they didn’t end the pregnancy the mother dies, and if the mother dies so does the fetus.  At 11 weeks there is absolutely no hope of removing the baby prematurely and saving in neo-natal intensive care.  Not even close.  There were two choices; two deaths or one death.  The nun agreed to one death and one life and she gets excommunicated for it.  Things like that really do make it hard to continue to be a member of that church.
