Nuns in Decline!

I don't disagree that participation in religious orders has declined. I agree this decline is not a good thing. Guess what, male participation in religious orders has also experienced a similar decline over the last forty years. So Jo Piazza's conclusions in this story are all wrong. The decline of nuns is not due to the Catholic Church going after progressive nuns or refusing to ordinate women for the priesthood.  

There are a lot of reasons for the decline of priests and nuns, but I can conclusively state it is not because the Catholic Church has not embraced and celebrated progressives. That is not the well that the Catholic Church are drawing novices from. Joining a religious order is a matter of faith. And there are options than being a full time nun, including being an associate. You can be married, have children, even have a blog, and still participate in a religious order.

DaTechGuy notes that Jo Piazza gives her game away.

Race in America and Ferguson: Nicholas Kristof does not get it

Nicholas Kristof says in the light of Ferguson race deserves more attention than it gets. Mr. Kristof points out the economic disparity between black and white Americans.  As Kristof notes: "The black-white income gap is roughly 40 percent greater today than it was in 1967." The question that Mr. Kristof raises that deserves far more attention is why is that the case?

Could it be that the Democrats' Great Society and War on Poverty Programs were (and remain) a disaster (for both the poor and tax payers) that made economic disparity worse, not better? Why are black Americans voting 90% for a party that is intent on keeping them dependent and in poverty?

Why aren't Democrats (supported by people like Nicholas Kristof) being held accountable for these failed policies?
