But, as AP notes, "This response is a start, but it is still lacking." Of course, there is a lot lacking in this situation, including formation, obedience to clear and obvious Church teaching, discipline, accountability, and leadership. None of this, sadly, is surprising. As Donna Steichen documents in several places in Ungodly Rage: The Hidden Face of Catholic Feminism (Ignatius Press, 1991), Quinn has been a known player among dissenting nuns for decades, including being director of the radical National Coalition of American Nuns (NCAN) in the 1980s. She continues to be a coordinator for the group, which openly supports abortion and the ordination of women.
There are just two possibilities: Sr. Quinn's superiors are clueless about her actions over the past thirty of so years, in which case they are completely incompetent, or they are supportive of those actions, in which case they should be called for a serious and real accounting. Hopefully the ongoing Vatican investigation of American women's religious will actually separate the wheat from the abortion supporters.
