Bishops Play Church Queens as Pawns - NYTimes.com - Maureen Dowd - Even as Republicans try to wrestle women into chastity belts, the Vatican is trying to muzzle American nuns. Who thinks it’s cool to bully nuns?

Yet the nuns must be yanked into line by the crepuscular, medieval men who run the Catholic Church.
