"Millions of Catholics throughout the world, despite a profound commitment to their faith, feel deeply ambivalent about the hierarchical Catholic institution and the rightward agendas of the current and previous popes. These Catholics long for a church that would more closely reflect their own beliefs and experiences, a church that would offer a welcoming community and serve as a global leader in the fight for justice." "Catholic Does Not Equal the Vatican heralds the revival of such a church - a democratic and participatory church that transcends narrow Vatican doctrine and thrives despite Vatican censure. This book by scholar and activist Rosemary Radford Ruether examines the serious moral contradictions in Vatican Catholicism and offers a vision of a faith grounded in Christ's teachings and committed to justice and peace."--BOOK JACKET.
