Good Catholic Girls?

How Women Are Leading the Fight to Change the Church

NEW YORK, Feb. 14 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The following was released today by Harper Collins Publishers on Angela Bonavoglias new book "Good Catholic Girls":

GOOD CATHOLIC GIRLS is a lively account of these amazing and courageous women, as seen through Bonavoglia's eyes. They include Joan Chittister, the Benedictine nun who refused to obey a Vatican (news - web sites) order not to speak at the first international conference of women's ordination groups worldwide; Mary Ramerman, ordained a Catholic priest before 3,000 jubilant supporters in a packed theater in Rochester, New York; Frances Kissling, whose fight for women's reproductive rights has shaken the Church at its highest levels; priest abuse survivor Barbara Blaine, who created the most powerful voice for victims, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests; and Sister Jeannine Gramick, who built a pioneering ministry to gays and lesbians, despite Vatican orders to ban her work.
If these are "good" Catholic girls, I shudder to imagine the bad ones.

I thought you may want to add this book to your "DO NOT BUY" List!
