“Nuns on the Bus” Tour America for Social Justice


They call themselves “Nuns on the Bus”, and their road tour for social justice may be coming to a town near you. The Catholic sisters have been explicitly criticized by the Vatican for touting a progressive agenda, but they’re not backing down. On Thursday they stopped in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to celebrate the Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of the health care overhaul bill.

The Vatican frowns on these nuns who are speaking up about social injustice. Don't tell me the male heirarchy never crossed the line of church and state and lined those inner pockets of various politicians with the almighty dollar. Utter 'nunsense.'
