Nuns Behaving Badly

This looks like a WUvian book to me!

It might prove interesting but convent did not, necessarily, equal nun back then. And anyone who has read a little history knows that the RC clergy weren't/aren't all saints.

I have two things I'd like to point out:

good points bd. 😝
back then i do believe that religion was rarely the reason for becoming a church official of any kind. sometimes that is still true.

As a student at our lady of victory elementary school i learned NEVER to be surprized by ANYTHING that the nuns or priests did.

So, are we to be shocked that nuns in that era had libidos, or wanted a little social freedom? How about that priestly abstinence back then meant only an abstinence from marriage? The last few centuries have bastardized those notions, and somehow instilled the idea that the clergy are above human nature. Massive modern rape convictions of priests are sure evidence of the failure of that notion. Not strangely, the scriptures take into full account the sexual nature of mankind, and only set down a few rules, that if followed, prevent wide-spread STDs. They were written about 3000 years before anyone knew what bacteria or viruses were. We should give more credit to our "ignorant" ancestors. They had broken social systems, but are our's any better, really? :roll:

kinda like 2 cars sitting side by side. one has a blown engine and the other's transmission is out. neither one runs and both will be difficult and expensive to fix.
