America Magazine Encourages Delinquency in US Women Religious

Like chronic alcoholics who've been confronted with a sudden dose of reality, America's religious are expected to submit to some questionnaires designed to address the extent and seriousness of their dysfunctional behaviors. Unfortunately, American Religious have bad friends like America Magazine who encourage them to continue merrily down the road of destruction.

Mother Mary Clare Millea, superior general of the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and charged by the Vatican with directing a three-year study of U.S. women religious congregations, has sent letters to religious leaders asking once again for their full cooperation in filling out questionnaires, which are part of the process.

The questionnaires, sent last year to the heads of some 325 religious communities, were to have been returned by Nov. 20. A substantial number of the religious communities -- some women religious leaders saying the "vast majority" of the communities -- refused to comply with an initial Millea request to fill out all the questions on the questionnaire and instead filled out only some or none. A number of religious communities chose, instead, to return to Millea their order's Vatican approved constitutions.
