Vatican says no to Yale Nun's Book

Margaret Farley pictured here looking more like a lay woman than a religious sister


The Vatican has recently criticized a book written by a nun, Sister Margaret Farley who works at Yale's Divinity school.  The book, "Just Love:  A framework for Christian Sexual Ethics" contradicts Church teaching and is scandalous because it was written by a Catholic nun.

Farley seems to not have a good grasp of Church teaching regarding sexuality.  She attempts to equate homosexual relationships with heterosexual ones.  Masturbation and other sexual acts are given validity.  This is unfortunate indeed.  It is important that every Catholic have a copy of the Catechism for reference.  We cannot rely on clergy, religious or lay people to teach in an orthodox manner.
