Vatican laments Irish dissent, silences priests

What, you want context?

Okay, here's the lede, with a little added emph.:

DUBLIN, IRELAND -- Just weeks after a report from a Vatican inquiry into the Irish church lamented what it described as “fairly widespread” dissent from church teaching, it was revealed that the Vatican has “silenced” Redemptorist Fr. Tony Flannery.

The Holy See’s move provoked fury among the members of the 800-strong Association of Catholic Priests, which has accused the Vatican of issuing a fatwa against liberal clerics.

As KK says, it's not just the nuns.

(The nuns?)

Just watched this a few hours ago: An interview on Democracy NOW! with "Sister Simone Campbell, head of the Catholic social justice group NETWORK, which was harshly criticized in the Vatican report."

Oh, how I wish my ancestors would kick the church in the balls and send them packing. After what they've done to Ireland, it's the least they deserve.
