Nuns on the Bus: check out their ride!

I was recently sent a link to a page about the Nuns on the Bus tour taking place.  This is effort run by Sr. Simone Campbell of the lobby group NETWORK to sign up as many people who will vote for democrats (the pro-abortion party) as possible.

Here is a video about their luxury bus.

    Sweet ride, sisters! I had been all wrong about you.

  2. Grateful to be Catholic says:

    The nuns are “standing up to the government”? The poor fellow is still stuck in the Sixties. But I’m glad they have two refrigerators, a shower, workstations, and a private lounge with mood lights. All that standing up to whatever must be hard work. George Soros has to keep the troops comfy.

  3. VexillaRegis says:

    I can’t help feeling sad for them. They have no vocations, apparently. Some old and once orthodox orders will soon be gone.

  4. I feel sad for them, too, but only because they are NOT standing up to the government.

    They are in fact totally working for the Man, from a position of white, Eurocentric, capitalistic and investment-funded comfort.

    The day they start carrying rifles and firing on the Capitol, in defence of the right to bear arms, and not to be taxed to death, and to be left alone in the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness, is the day they will be ‘standing up to the government’.

    “Stand up against our rights” at 30 seconds. Seems about right…

    Poverty? Nope, I don’t see any evidence of that here. Chastity? Oh I hope so. Obedience? Not since 1970 something. This video is infuriating. That bus looks like something out of Las Vegas with the neon lights all over the place. Nowhere on that bus did I see any evidence of a Crucifix or anything religious but I did see Audrey Hepburn from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” in the bathroom. The only thing encouraging about this video was the footage of the feminists (aka. “sisters”): they’re all old and there weren’t any young women with them. What kind of young woman would want to pursue a vocation with such people? Answer = none!

    So, this bus doesn’t belong to them, but they are renting it. I gathered that because he spoke of removing bunk beds to put in work stations. Pray tell, where do they sleep? Or do they sleep in a hotel in addition to this? I don’t want anyone saying ANYTHING about my carbon footprint.

  9. mrshopey says:

    According to Star Coaches, it can cost between $1,000 and $1,400/DAY to rent these types of buses.
    If there “tour” is a month long, you have spent, just for the bus, $30-42,000. Wow. Just, wow. Who paid for it?

  10. mrshopey says:

    I got an amount for this year:
    “But she said the growing role of outside money in elections, with no requirements to disclose how much is donated and by whom, convinced her that another bus trip was necessary, though she will have to raise $400,000 to fund the trip. Campbell said she has collected about $300,000 so far, mainly from Network members and from foundations that promote voter registration and health care reform.”
    Do you know how much the poor could benefit from that?

  11. Unwilling says:

    “We the people
    We the voters”
    Hm. Tea Party!
    But counterfeit?

  12. Joe in Canada says:

    I don’t think it’s necessary to mock the driver by calling her “fellow”. It’s good to see an older sister whose eyes and hands are strong enough to drive a bus. And a ‘naturalist’ too! – depilatories are too harsh.

  13. DisturbedMary says:

    At the end of each day, they can park the bus in an abandoned convent parking lot and get a room at the Hilton.

  14. RobS says:

    I was dismayed to see the Nuns on the Bus advertised in the bulletin of my local student parish. Lord have mercy.

  15. JesusFreak84 says:

    So how do they justify themselves for driving a bus that costs more per day than the “poor” about whom they claim to care so much will see in an entire year??? Sr. Simone has raised more money for this Throw Christ and His Bride Under the Bus tour than I’ll likely see within the next decade! (Complete societal collapse notwithstanding.)

  16. AngelGuarded says:

    Was it Saint Peter who said “spare no expense” or Saint Paul, I can’t remember. Those “nuns” are a SCANDAL! So is their bus and all they stand for and grouse about. I must watch the movie about Mother Teresa again to get that out of my head.

  17. CAR says:

    Someone should release another version of “Lost in the Fifties Tonight” and replace it with lost in the 60’s. While I was lost in the 60’s, I was “found” in the 90’s (Convert). Wish I could have seen that bus in Chi-Town–lots to tell them! And…oh, Sisters…let me tell you, too, about my abortion regret. My prayers and redemptive suffering for them.

  18. acardnal says:

    I’m guessing that the Steam Pipe Trunk Distribution Venue isn’t as nice as that bus!

  19. HeatherPA says:

    Wow, what a vivid illustration of the point proven over and over (unwittingly) by these liberal idiots.
    Spending freely of what has to be someone else’s money (much like Joel Osteen, Michael Moore, Al Gore, et al) to travel in high style decrying “the man” and feeling sorry for the poor shlobs turning out to see them.

    Lord have mercy.
    And also, thank goodness that generation will soon be senile and in the corner where no one will pay attention to their ravings.
