“Led by Sister Simone Campbell, the “Nuns on the Bus”

rejected the budget proposal of Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis.,

which it called “immoral” and “unpatriotic.”22PORTER3-master675-2

 

Ryan’s budget “rejects church teaching about solidarity, inequality, the choice for the poor, and the common good. That’s wrong,” said Campbell, executive director of Network, a Catholic social justice lobby. Nuns on the Bus claims that the Ryan budget would raise taxes on low-income families while cutting taxes for millionaires and corporations, push families into poverty, and kick 8 million people off of food stamps.”

Sister says: See and hear  the recent NPR show:

A Nun on the Bus – and in the driver’s seat, too

cover

From Network Lobby

 

“Last week, Sister Simone Campbell was on the Tavis Smiley show to talk about her new book, “A Nun on the Bus.” They discussed healthcare, immigration reform, Rep. Paul Ryan, and what it means to live a faith that does justice: “I describe my spirituality as ‘walking willing,’ going to the places where I’m led, and letting people break my heart over and over. I discovered when my heart is broken, it’s broken open, so there is room for more people, and then hope is released.”
