    CHICAGO - A prominent U.S. Catholic nuns' group said on Thursday it was "stunned" that the Vatican reprimanded it for spending too much time on poverty and social justice concerns and not enough on abortion and gay marriage.

    In a stinging report on Wednesday, the Vatican said the Leadership Conference of Women Religious had been "silent on the right to life" and had failed to make the "Biblical view of family life and human sexuality" a central plank in its agenda.

    It would seem the RNC has opened an office in the Vatican.

    It is such a prominent group that most people have never heard of it.

    Why shouldn't they spend time on poverty and not abortions and gay marriage?

    1. Nuns are poor
    2. They're not married
    3. They probably don't have that many abortions
