The excommunication of a nun
Nicholas Kristof writes a disturbing account of a nun who has been excommunicated. Mr. Kristof says: When a hierarchy of mostly aging men pounce on and excommunicate a revered nun who was merely trying to save a mother’s life, the church seems to me almost as out of touch as it was in the cruel and debauched days of the Borgias in the Renaissance.
