Sarah Posner (sarahposner.com, God's Profits) and Grant Gallicho (Commonweal)

On The Posner Show, Sarah talks with Grant about the Vatican’s crackdown on the nuns in the Leadership Conference of Women Religious. Is this payback for the nuns’ support of health care reform? Grant explains the church’s “preoccupation” with feminism, and why he is dubious that the Bishops’ upcoming “fortnight for freedom” campaign will have any traction with Catholics in the pews. Do the views of dissenting lay Catholics matter to the Church? Plus: Does Paul Ryan get Catholicism wrong?
