Meet Sister Pimp

Hospice helped dying man lose his virginity

A young disabled man who receives care for his life-limiting illness at a hospice run by a nun spoke yesterday of his decision to use a prostitute to experience sex before he dies.

Sister Frances Dominica gave her support to 22-year-old Nick Wallis, who was born with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Sufferers usually die by their thirties.
"I know that some people will say 'You are a Christian foundation. What are you thinking about?'. But we are here for all faiths and none," she said.

"It is not our job to make moral decisions for our guests. We came to the conclusion that it was our duty of care to support Nick emotionally and to help ensure his physical safety."

Let's see what the Catechism of the Catholic Church says:
Sin is a personal act. Moreover, we have a responsibility for the sins committed by others when we cooperate in them:
- by participating directly and voluntarily in them;
- by ordering, advising, praising, or approving them;
- by not disclosing or not hindering them when we have an obligation to do so;
- by protecting evil-does. CCC 1868

Thus sin makes men accomplices of one another and causes concupiscense, violence, and injustice to reign among them. Sins give reise to social situations and institutions tht are contrary to the divine goodness. "Structures of sin" are the expression and effect of personal sings. They lead their victims to do evil in thier turn. In an analogous sense, they constitute a "social sing." CCC 1869

By cooperating and giving our support of other's sins we ouselves sin. Our duty as Christians is to uphold the moral law of God. St. Frances Dominica may not have been able to stop this man from bringing a prostitute to his home but she should in least have not lended her support if not attempt to advise him of the sinful nature of the act.
