Nuns on Bus Give Yardstick to Paul Ryan on Catholic Economic Justice
Catholic nuns seem to have an uncanny ability to spot the insincere, the hypocritical and the uncaring. Thus, it should be no surprise that House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan—selected by his Janesville, Wis., high-school classmates as "Biggest Brown-Noser" at the same time they elected him prom king—would fail to pass the sniff test of progressive nuns.
A group of nuns from NETWORK, a national Catholic social justice lobby, decided to take to the road on an excellent adventure, pointing out the disastrous impact that Ryan’s budget—stamped with Mitt Romney’s approval as “marvelous”—would have on those outside the top 1%, particularly the poor. “As Catholic sisters, we must speak out against the current House Republican budget, authored by Rep. Paul Ryan,” reads a statement on the group’s website. “We do so because it harms people who are already suffering.”
Been reading about this, these Nuns are driven. They're even driving the (arch reactionary) Vatican back. Its pretty cool.
