I toldjah yesterday that the creepy attempt to pretend that America’s Nuns were in favor of Obamacare was a ruse by a small number of left wing nuns:
Sr. Mary Ann Walsh, director of Media Relations at the USCCB, stated on Thursday afternoon that “the recent letter from Network, a social justice lobby of sisters, grossly overstated whom they represent in a letter to Congress that was also released to media.”
“Network’s letter, about health care reform, was signed by a few dozen people, and despite what Network said, they do not come anywhere near representing 59,000 American sisters,” Sr. Walsh clarified.
“The letter had 55 signatories, some individuals, some groups of three to five persons. One endorser signed twice,” she added. “There are 793 religious communities in the United States.”
“The math is clear. Network is far off the mark,” the U.S. bishops’ spokeswoman concluded.
NETWORK’s letter has also received criticism from the head of the Council of Major Superiors of Women Religious, Mother Mary Quentin Sheridan, who charged that the group “directly opposed” the position of the U.S. Catholic Bishops on health care reform. Cardinal Francis George issued a statement on Monday that denounced the current Senate health care bill and outlined its problems, including its funding of abortion and lack of conscience protections.
They are fakes and liars. Pretty bad for nuns, huh?
