258: Leaving the Fold

Jan 30, 2004
A popular, progressive politician becomes...a talk show host. One you've probably heard of. A group of nuns leave the Catholic Church...only to find themselves essentially, remaining nuns. These and other stories of people leaving the situation they're used to—and striking off for something less familiar.
  • Susan Drury reports on a group of Glenmary Sisters who chose to leave the Catholic Church in the 1960s but still stay nuns, more or less. Several of the former sisters, Monica Appleby, Helen M. Lewis, and Rosemary Radford Ruether, wrote a book about their experience, Mountain Sisters. Visit the online home of retirement community Elderspirit. (14 minutes) ReligionTravel
