A book written by a Nun promoting safe sex, tolerance of gay people and explaining how masturbation can actually improve marriages is getting the Vatican all hot and bothered. Turns out these hardcore Catholics take their intolerance, bigotry and general sticks up their bottoms very seriously. For more on what the Vatican is saying about this educational book, keep reading.
The Vatican is known for their…compassion towards the pedophile priests in their churches but apparently they do not take kindly to open minded Nun’s who are trying to educate people. On Monday they verbally tore apart a book on sexuality penned by a well known American nun, stating it clearly contradicted church teaching on issues like masturbation, homosexuality and marriage and that the Nun had a “defective understanding” of Catholic theology.
The book, “Just Love: A Framework for Christian Sexual Ethics” by Sister Margaret Farley, a member of the Sisters of Mercy religious order and emeritus professor of Christian ethics at Yale Divinity School, apparently posed “grave harm” to the faithful (this according to the Vatican).
Farley said she never intended the book to reflect current official Catholic teaching. She said she wrote it to explore sexuality via various religious traditions, theological resources and human experience.
What’s the Nun written sex book all about?
The book is first and foremost an educational book for sex and sexual ethics. Some things she wrote about are that masturbation doesn’t raise any moral problems and can actually help relationships rather than hinder them. That homosexual people as well as their activities should be respected. That legal recognition of gay marriage can help transform the stigmatization of gays.
So…basically this book is compassionate, helpful and loving towards people from all walks of life. No wonder The Vatican wants to shut this lady up! We all know that the Pope isn’t a fun of sex, fun or kittens.
Silly Nun, promoting acceptance, love and joy. Who do you think you are, Jesus?
