‘Nuns on the bus’ protest against Ryan budget concludes

Catholic World News - July 03, 2012

Fourteen nuns associated with the lobbying group Network have concluded a nine-state bus tour in protest of the House budget plan. The tour, which attracted considerable media attention, concluded at the United Methodist Building in Washington.

“Some Catholic politicians are pushing budget cuts that violate Catholic social teaching," said Sister Simone Campbell, executive director of Network. “And they jeopardize the Catholic sisters' effort to really help struggling families, to practice the values of the Gospel by serving the poor and vulnerable.”

    They are putting forth Catholic teaching. Must they be in habit to do this and what has Vatican 2 to do with this issue. What the Church teaches, what our Lord Jesus taught about social justice should be supported by all who call themselves Catholic. Or are you bothered because they are females? Deacon Carl

    After seeing these aged nuns on television, I think that "Nuts on the bus" better describes them. Pitiful.

    These nuns need to get back on the bus and go find their Habits.\ Oh what vatican 2 has brought!
