Denise Hunnell aka Catholic Mom has asked some very important questions regarding the USCCB's appointment of Kathy Saile as the new Director of Domestic Policy for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
This important and very public post has gone to a woman who was a featured speaker at a 2006 (that ain't all that long ago, folks) WIN conference. Perhaps you don't know what WIN is. Maybe that says something about the company you keep… or don't keep.
WIN claims to be Washington's premier professional, political, and social network dedicated to empowering young, Democratic, pro-choice women.
So what does Kathy Saile's appearance at their conference say about the company she keeps? What does it say about her views on abortion and other life issues? Along with similar pertinent questions, Denise Hunnell asks Was There No One Else? Other blogs commenting on this include The Cafeteria is Closed, Priestly Pugilist, and Creative Minority Report.
Clearly the bishops have some explaining to do. Actually they have some firing and hiring to do. How about starting with the bureaucrats who made this brilliant selection? With that thought in mind, who would like to wager that at least one nun who has not worn a habit for 30 years was on the committee that made this choice? Do I hear two habitless nuns? Three?
