"Theologian" Lies About Her Work to Bishops

Editor:  Of course Cardinal Wuerl's all-too mild admonitions of this Nun are accurate.  These power junkies will do anything to maintain their merciless Old Liberal grip on Catholic children and students.

Here's some more back ground on her deeds from Father Z.  And here's another link that will defend her from America.  And finally, here's where the Bishops are urging Catholic schools not to carry her perfidious books from Huffington Post.

WASHINGTON (CNS) -- Fordham University systematic theology professor Sister Elizabeth A. Johnson defended her 2007 book that recently came under harsh criticism from the U.S. bishops' Committee on Doctrine, restating concerns that her work was "thoroughly misunderstood and consistently misrepresented" by the committee.

Her vigorous defense of "Quest for the Living God: Mapping Frontiers in the Theology of God" came in a 38-page letter June 1 to committee members, reported National Catholic Reporter. The newspaper said it received a copy of her correspondence from a source not affiliated with the university.

Capuchin Franciscan Father Thomas Weinandy, executive director of the Secretariat for Doctrine of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, told Catholic News Service June 8 the doctrine committee was expected to discuss Sister Elizabeth's response when the bishops meet June 15-17 near Seattle in Bellevue, Wash.

Our projects include brownbags with reproductive rights activists, an ongoing escort program in partnership with Planned Parenthood of New York City, a research partnership with local pro-choice legal organizations, and internship opportunities.”

Founded in 1841, Fordham University has 14,666 students, 7,994 of whom are undergraduates
