The "Nuns on the Bus" have been a consistently popular and effective faith-based tool for religious progressives this campaign season, but on Monday a group of demonstrators apparently organized by a local Tea Party affiliate met the nuns at a stop in Marietta, Ohio, and provided a far different welcome than the sisters usually receive.
Holding placards with slogans like "Bums on the Bus" and "Romney-Ryan Yes, Fake Nuns No," the protesters focused their fire on the abortion issue, accusing the sisters of not being sufficiently anti-abortion.
Someone claiming to be a member of the local "We the People" chapter -- that is the name used by some Tea Party affiliates in the region -- posted a YouTube video of the counter-demonstrators taken before the half dozen nuns and some 100 supporters arrived. It says there were more than 175 marchers opposing the nuns and it shows the demonstrators praying the rosary and singing hymns before challenging the sisters.
"What could be more innocuous, unless of course the nuns happen to be a group of radical, feminist ideologues whose previous political actions have been so out of step with the teaching of the Catholic Church that they have been condemned by the Vatican," the YouTube poster wrote in text accompanying the footage.
Sister Simone Campbell, who leads the Washington-based NETWORK, a left-leaning Catholic social justice group, has spearheaded the Nuns on the Bus tours and spoke against the budget drafted by GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan during the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.
My comment: GOOD.
It's about time there was pushback from good, conservative Catholics.
These “nuns” are dancing on the trap door of HELL!
Not a nice soft shoe type of dancing either more of the kind of dance staged by the group STOMP.
...”My comment: GOOD.

YES, it is high time..These women are fake nuns. I have my own ideas about who and what they are.
Let them ride Under the Bus!
Hello? This is just another fancy term for a liberals who call themselves “spiritual”. I pray they find the Truth.
How do they get away with supporting genocide of the unborn and still consider themselves in a holy order?
Sounds good to me.
They are renegade “social justice progressives” masquerading as Catholic nuns, when they are not.
Of course, the leftist MSM is happy to play along with their charade.
‘Pastor Wurmbrand asked us to share this knowledge, expanding on it if possible, and to ensure that our families and friends understood that we can choose Christianity or Marxism, but not both.’
fake nuns is correct
Sisters on the Bus
