Nuns Facing the Ruler
Are American nuns free to reject church discipline and stay Catholic?

Most recently, the sisters of LCWR have insisted that the Vatican's concern be "addressed by the entire church community." This proposal, however, is a Protestant notion, not a Catholic one. Even with the conciliar emphasis of Vatican II, which values and promotes dialogue, there will come a point when nuns associated with this movement must choose whether they will kiss the pontiff's ring or remove their own.
