NEW YORK (RNS) The “Nuns on the Bus” are revving up their engines for another national campaign, only this time the Catholic sisters are taking their mobile platform for social justice along the country’s Southern border to push Congress to pass immigration reform.

    “The bus stopped at cities along the way, largely in recession-hit Midwestern states, where the sisters and the activists who joined the tour were met at their rallies by growing crowds and media attention.”

    So now they are rallying for tens of millions of illegal aliens to be legitimized and take even more jobs from unemployed recession-hit Americans and more money from the U.S. taxpayers and Catholic Church members in the form of aid. And it won’t stop there. Chain migration will follow, as will childbirths. Amnesty also encourages even more illegal invasions. Church leaders for amnesty must be on drugs –either that or they are mentally ill or possessed. In any case they certainly can’t claim to love the USA. Do they really think Americans will want to remain Catholic in the face of such economic and political (border control & citizenship) betrayal ? So they think non-Catholic Americans find it easy to have a positive attitude to ward the Catholic Church when they take such positions ? Not that they, racists that they are, care if the people hurt by their politics are not hispanic. Church leaders will pay for their immorality and stupidity — at least in the next world.

    Romans 13 teaches us to obey the law. I guess that is part of Bible that these nuns have never read. These nuns should be teaching the illegals to obey the law and return to Mexico, Poland, or wherever else they came from.

    These persons are self-promoters, with a strong interest in drawing attention to themselves. Before reading the article, I just thought they were frustrated dissidents within the Catholic Church, with very declining rates of vocation. However, now I know that I these celebrities are a “cultural touchstone”, had “been compared to rock stars,” and one (the big promoter) even appeared on “The Colbert Report”. Ugh.

    Instead of cheap celebrity, we need a realistic discussion of immigration reform, including how we are going to pay for benefits for a significant additional number of people when we have $66T of unfunded liabilities, mostly in Medicare and Medicaid. It has not been explained, either by these women religious, by Cardinal Dolan, or by other noted advocates of immigration reform, how a society can have both open borders and a welfare system. Until we know what it costs and how we pay for it, the left should spare us from acting like their position is morally superior.

    These persons should be ignored, not celebrated. Their real agenda is to undermine the authority of the Magisterium of the Catholic Church.

    “Social Justice” and Dissent are the religions these WOMEN serve. They cause confusion and lead weaker minds astray by their rebellious behavior. They– like Lucifer–“will not serve” and should be set free and NOT CALL THEMSELVES NUNS. Who is paying for this, that is the question…

  • Patt

    They should be dismissed–they are seeking thier own glory and doing harm. Silly women (not nuns)!

    Disgusted and no loss to the Catholic Church – you have certainly NEVER read the gospels. Do us all a favor and join another church preferably one with your narrow minded racist views. You’ll fit right in.

    Rosie–you are so correct. We do not need these silly, shallow, rebelliously immature old ladies running around for attention. They are a pox and an embarrassment to REAL NUNS. Nobody is paying any attention to them and the Church should step up AND CUT THEM LOOSE!!!
