Sister Maureen Fiedler, one of the most outspoken veteran dissenters in the Catholic Church, commented honestly yesterday on the meeting of the American Catholic Culture last weekend in Detroit. She admitted that those in attendance were part of the “graying” crowd, and bemoaned that it was also “a very ‘white’ crowd.”
Thus did she validate our news release on the meeting that we issued prior to the conference. We mentioned how it would be filled with octogenarians. We didn’t mention that only old white people would be drawn to event, but next time we’ll be sure to mention how lacking in diversity the dissidents really are. Thank you, Sr. Maureen, for getting it right.
