(RNS) A progressive Catholic group is kicking off a new nun-led bus tour ahead of the midterm elections that organizers say is designed to hold congressional Republicans accountable for their votes on taxes and health care.
Sister Simone Campbell, a nun and lawyer who heads the Catholic social justice lobbying group Network, launched the Nuns on the Bus Tax Justice Truth Tour at a press conference Monday morning (Oct. 8) in Santa Monica, Calif. Organizers said the new campaign will involve 30 Catholic nuns attending 54 events in 21 states, concluding Nov. 2 outside Mar-a-Lago President Trumps Florida golf resort with a Fiesta for the Common Good.
After opening her remarks by speaking briefly in Spanish, Campbell expressed hope that the tour will draw attention to policies that benefit poorer Americans and push back against what she characterized as Republican efforts to curtail them especially the recent GOP tax bill, which was signed into law by President Trump in December 2017.
Nuns on the Bus is headed on the road today to expose the lies about the Republican tax law and hold the people who voted for it accountable ahead of the 2018 midterms, she said at the event, which was live-streamed on Facebook by Network and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosis team. We have to end the unpatriotic lie of individualism, and instead recognize the constitutional truth of We the People.

These are not the nuns of Leo McCarey's "Bells of Saint Mary's".

19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
It’s Nunya business.
Nice, they share a bus tour with one of wors baby killer advocates in the country every one of them should be excommunicated.
“The unconstitutional lie of individualism”
The people of Venezuela are desperately in need of their advice...
Another example of why the Church is in crisis.
These heretical ‘nuns’ should be worried about bringing an unsaved world to Christ. That’s it. Not fiscal policy.
To say they’re misguided is an understatement.
I thought those old gals had all died by now.
Funny thing. They aren’t Nuns. They are partially funded by ORGANIZING FOR AMERICA (the organization created by Barack Obama).

These evil creatures the dems drag out every election .

One of my favorite movies even though Whoopi is in it. I loved the music especially the song, I will follow Him, I love him I love Him. The gal with red hair had such a beautiful voice.
Got a schedule of their events?
Ill go protest the Nones if they get close to me.
Who’s funding them? So much for the vow of poverty. Instead of helping the homeless they are Political junkies.
High time to start messing with the tax exempt status of groups like this. Make them squirm and bleed from the eyes and ears while we are still in power.
