Myth # 12

Women who go into religious life nowadays are overwhelmingly overweight, middle-aged frumps in polyester who couldn't get a date even with the help of a Visa card.

Now here's a funny thing.

There is a big study out that shows that young Catholic women are really only interested in communities of nuns who wear the habit and do all that traditional nunny bowing and scraping to authority that the fembots so loathe.

So why does the website of the National Religious Vocation Conference that did the study, feature on their "new members" page, mainly (ahem) ladies who are not, shall we say,

more representative?

Nope I don't see any agenda around here.

No sirree!
