It's so typical of the intolerant person to condemn a book he hasn't read as Cardinal John O'Connor did with Uta Ranke-Heinemann's "Eunuchs for the Kingdom of Heaven" ("Clashing with Her Church," Feb. 11). Ranke-Heinemann mentions that people laugh at members of the Catholic hierarchy because of their negative views on birth control, priestly celibacy and women priests. This may be true in Europe. Here, most Catholics seldom give any thought to members of the hierarchy. They barely tolerate them.

Pray tell how can Cardinal John O'Connor of New York, after only reading the cover, make such vitriolic remarks about Uta Ranke-Heinemann's book "Eunuchs for the Kingdom of Heaven"? Perhaps the adage, "never judge a book by its cover," does not apply to His Eminence. DOROTHY CROWLEY-CAVECCHE Palos Verdes Estates

I'm sick and tired of newspapers, TV and movies bashing the Catholic Church. "Clashing With Her Church" (Feb. 11) should have been titled "Cashing In on Her Church." As for Uta Ranke-Heinemann's remarks that she can't understand a church that believes in the rights of the unborn but does not try to stop the war, she hasn't been reading the press or watching the news; from the Pope down, there has been a constant flow of anti-war and peace statements including (those of) Los Angeles Archbishop Roger Mahony.

As a light rain falls, Uta Ranke-Heinemann ascends the stairs of St. Patrick's Cathedral and quietly gives thanks. Thanks . . . to thousands of readers in Germany and other European countries who have made her feminist polemic against the Roman Catholic Church, "Eunuchs for the Kingdom of Heaven," a runaway bestseller.

The Roman Catholic Church said Friday that it had withdrawn the teaching license of the world's first woman Roman Catholic theology professor for disputing the virgin birth of Jesus. Uta Ranke-Heinemann, 59, who has held the Essen University chair of ancient church history and the New Testament for three years, believes the Virgin Mary conceived Jesus by natural means.
