State of the church in India

" Nuns in the church are being discriminated against and treated shoddily by priests who force them to wash clothes and cook meals, a cardinal has claimed, in revelations that have created fresh ripples in the Catholic church."

The cardinal's insight into the lives of nuns in church comes close on the heels of a book by Sister Jasme, which created a storm in church circles.

Jasme had alleged sexual abuse, corruption and power struggles in the 'dark confines' of a convent she had lived in for 30 years."

This with the recent revelations on the murder of Sister Abhaya shows the complicity of the Kerala church in the crime.

It is shocking that these very people are now entering politics and fielding their candidates!
