I could give up everything up sex.  If God created sex and orgasms, then doesn't God want you to have sex and orgasms?

The sooner this misogynistic enslavement is done away with, the better.

Has a rhetorical question in a headline ever not been answered "no"?

Good thing you don't have to in a monastery.  But it's more difficult than it looks.

DNRTA, but I'd think, if the church tried,  the internet could more likely be used to reverse the many decades long decline in nun numbers.

so...hot nun thread?

Lolz. 3/10. Bound to get a few bites.

Um... yes?  Because giving things up to devote yourself to god is the entire point of becoming a monk/nun?

Numbers have probably been declining because it's currently mostly people that actually want to be nuns and families don't/can't traditionally force girls into it for having premarital sex anymore.  It doesn't have anything to do with secular life being more alluring.

// Also I'm pretty sure that monks  have the internet and phones and so on, they just don't make a habit of using them all the time.

No sex or internet? Sounds like a typical marriage. The gap twixt that life and typical lives is more like a paper cut than a canyon.

Why the hell would anyone be a nun? It's completely stupid.
 
2013-12-16 05:31:19 AM
Do nuns have to give up the internet? That seems doubtful. Sex, on the otherhand...With the whores these days? Good luck.

It's housing, food, clothing, medical care and a job.  Depends on how big a trade off it is for you, I guess.

Rather than a nun, they should get a little.   The new nun now called a JTip.

Sure, I'll be a nun. Just as soon as the church stops being bigoted douchebags about gay people, starts being reasonable about birth control and stops farking up third world countries by encouraging them to overpopulate and catch mostly preventable diseases like aids, starts giving women more positions of authority in the church and allows me to get married while being a nun. FFS, if you want to keep molesters out you should do the same thing with priests. Encourage family men and women to be leaders in the church. What does someone with no sex life, no spouse and no kids know about what is good for families/family planning anyway? It is ridiculous.

Simone Campbell's order is dying out. Their median age is like 72 or something.

Contrarily, more traditional orders are growing. The Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, who look and act like practicing Catholics, have outgrown the convent they built seven years ago and so are building a new one.

But the new pope sold the Benz and is really humble! That totally erases decades of hiding pedos and making women 2nd class status in the church!
 
2013-12-16 08:38:37 AM
I have a friend who has considered joining an Order, and she regularly Skypes with sisters from that Order. In other words, becoming a nun isn't inherently a decision to forgo modern technology. Granted, there are plenty of other challenges the Catholic Church faces in preventing the number of nuns from falling (primarily the practice of denying ordination to women while maintaining that only those who are ordained can speak authoritatively on the will of God) but "they'll have to get rid of their iPhones!" isn't true of most nuns.

According to many movies I've watched, nuns get plenty of sex.

/interestingly, most nunspoitation films are Italian

The only nun I've ever known personally really dislikes patriarchal Catholicism, supports ordination of women and has badmouthed several popes in my presence (not Francis though).  So, not really surprised :)

There's entirely too much conversation here, and not enough hot nun pics

Most psychiatrists are not crazy. Would you go to a dentist with bad teeth? How about a BMW car saleman that only drove a beat up 1974 Ford Pinto?

It feels like I live in a convent sometimes because I get nun.
 
2013-12-16 10:15:02 AM
I'm reluctant to get serious, as I know that sort of thing will hurt me on Fark, but seriously:

Not all monastic communities swear off modern conveniences.  The one in this article, the Poor Clares take a vow of extreme poverty.  Not all monastic communities demand poverty.  Also, there have always been and will always be people who want to live away from society.  Monasticism isn't just Christian.  See Buddhism.  I'm pretty happy to live here in the world, but I can certainly respect why others might want to get away.  Maybe if there was an Order of St. Thomas (Virgin Islands) with a strict vow of relaxation, I could do it.  Good for them.  Still, haters gonna hate.

What Nuns are not suppose to have sex? Sister Tiffany is going to be surprised.

They totally fark around.  Not all of them, but nuns & priests roll up deep in monkey business.

That's what I love about these millennial girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age.

/yes they do

that's why you go through a period of discernment, to have a better understanding of what is to occur.
