Protesters wrong to make nuns’ visit political

October 20, 2012
The Marietta Times

Monday, Oct. 15th was a very sad day for Marietta. One hundred and fifty Republicans protested the Nuns on the Bus visit with signs calling them "Bums on the Bus", "Romney-Yes! Fake Nuns-No", and "Nuns on the gateway to hell tour". The Nuns responded to the protesters with love and compassion. Sister Monica McGloin's Marietta remarks have been reported on the Religion News Service. - "We are 100% pro-life. As many of your signs are showing, we believe life begins at conception and ends with natural death. And we do not see focusing on one issue, one point of life, as a way that we should proceed. Pro-life for us means that we also concern ourselves with living wage, just wage, access to healthcare, education, food, housing, care for our seniors, Medicare and other kinds of healthcare programs that are supportive. Providing daycare for children so their parents can work." The protesters booed and heckled her remarks and waved their Romney signs.
