Nuns on the Busí Launch New Nationwide Tour Ahead of Midterms

(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 Trump’s 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 Pelosi’s team. “We have to end the unpatriotic lie of individualism, and instead recognize the constitutional truth of ‘We the People.’”

Let's clear this up.

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

These are godless lesbian dykes living communally and calling themselves "nuns".

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.

Funny thing. They aren’t Nuns. They are partially funded by ORGANIZING FOR AMERICA (the organization created by Barack Obama).

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.

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.
