Gee, thanks for assuming the best about my intentions. I was trying to help the OP find the best NFP resource, which was what was asked of us. IMO, CCLI is no longer the best. I don’t go around just spreading malicious, untrue gossip. I only posted what I did because of what Mrs. Kippley herself told myself and others.
Here is the thread where Sheila enlightened some of us to what is going on at CCLI: forums.catholic.com/showthread.php?t=193954&page=3&highlight=sheila+kippley
And here are quotes of her posts from it:
For brevity, the Seven Standards of eco-breastfeeding are spelled out at www.nfpandmore.org at the free online NFP manual, Part 3, on the Home Page.
Second, Leeta (#12 message) was wrong on the effectiveness of eco-breastfeeding prior to the first 6 months of life. With the Seven Standards, it is almost nil chance of pregnancy the first 3 months and 1% for the next 3 months. After 6 months, without any fertility awareness or abstinence, the chance of pg prior to the first period is 6%. Amenorrhea should last for 1, 2 or more years with eco-breastfeeding. By nature’s norm to have menstruation return within the first 3 months of childbirth should be the exception, not the norm. God’s way is good.
Third, a brochure promoting the benefits of breastfeeding is free at the above website on the Home Page. This brochure can be used to promote breastfeeding at your church and in your community.
Fourth, it appears that CCL will no longer teach ecological breastfeeding in their new teaching program. Their website has not been changed and contradicts what has been coming out of CCL. The CCL website continues to strongly promotes EBF and has not been changed to show what is actually going on. Go to the “blog” in the upper right corner of www.nfpandmore.org and you can review EBF/CCL on the right side of the blog. There are 6 blogs on the changes at CCL regarding breastfeeding and the dropping of “ecological.” My husband is now blogging on the changes at CCL with regard to the theology.
We stopped running CCL in early 1999. We were disemployed in the fall of 2003. Things became so intolerable by December 2003 that we left the CCL Board.
It has become clear that the current management is revoking the three basic charisms on which we founded CCL back in 1971—ecological breastfeeding as a form of NFP, the covenant theology of sexuality to explain and defend Humanae Vitae, and a choice-oriented approach to systematic NFP. That’s why we are now doing our best to keep alive through NFP International the tradition we founded in 1971.
CCL has refused to sell its founder’s latest book, Breastfeeding and Catholic Motherhood. Go to nfpandmore.org/bacmreviews.shtml to read the excellent reviews for this book. This decision not to accept a review for this book for CCL’s Family Foundatitons and not to sell this book was a CCL Board decision.
Many still associate the Kippleys with CCL. We asked those who knew the situation not to raise a fuss. In addition, we were silent about our separation at first because we were hoping CCL would continue the teachings we brought to the League. Unfortunately, we have been disappointed. Sheila Kippley
