Nuns Blast Bishops Over Lack Of Speaking Out Against Gay Bullying and LGBT Suicides

The National Coalition of American Nuns have come out swinging and have released a statement earlier this week that accused the US Conference of Catholic Bishops of acting like “blinded Pharisees” as they continued to wage war against marriage equality without acknowledging the recent tragic LGBT bullying and suicide events that have swept across America.

“The US Catholic Bishops failed to make a single statement regarding these tragic, preventable deaths,” says the statement; adding that despite more than a month having passed since the news of the deaths of Asher Brown, Billy Lucas, Tyler Clementi and a number of other gay teens suicides broke “not one bishop’s voice was raised”.

The National Coalition of American Nuns statement goes on to harshly criticise the bishops for failing to “condemn a culture where youths are bullied for being who God created them to be and are sometimes pushed by society’s judgments to attempt suicide.”

Way to go sisters.  Grab your rulers and go get those bastards!
