Michael P. asks "what's going on?" with respect to the investigations into women religious in America. Michael references a PBS interview of National Catholic Reporter's Tom Fox. In that interview Fox speculates that the Vatican may be attempting "to rein in this last remnant of the Second Vatican Council" and may be using the investigations in preparation for picking the pockets of these congregations of religious women in order to pay some of its bills. Michael P., do you think this is what's going on? Or, do you have some other speculation?
