Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Disobeying orders

From AP-

KAZIMIERZ DOLNY, Poland - Police pushed their way into a Polish convent Wednesday and began evicting about 65 rebellious ex-nuns — arresting the mother superior and a monk who had occupied the complex with them illegally for two years.

The women had taken over the building in a rebellion against the Vatican, which had ordered the replacement of their mother superior, Jadwiga Ligocka.

"They were disobedient," said Mieczyslaw Puzewicz, a spokesman for the Lublin diocese of the Roman Catholic Church. The Vatican formally expelled the women from their Sisters of Bethany order last year.

Police arrested Mother Jadwiga and a former Franciscan friar, Roman Komaryczko, who had been living with the nuns, police spokesman Mariusz Sokolowski said. He would not say what the specific charges were.
Are these women really ex-nuns or are they just being displaced or moved? Disobeying the local Bishop or Vatican is serious business. Ask the father whose wife was on pregnancy bedrest and faced the loss of their health insurance. The mother was an almost ten-year employee of the diocese. The Bishop of Palm Beach through the actions of his employees clearly showing what he values most. The dollar or a human life? I think my readers can infer the correct answer from what I wrote above.

Note- Nuns are female monasitics or the equivalent of a monk.

Several hours into the operation, the women, in black habits and each escorted by two policewomen, began filing out of the building. Some carried musical instruments — guitars, a tambourine, a drum — while others bore simple backpacks or carried large blue garbage bags apparently packed their with belongings.
Almost sounds like a traveling band to me. If these women are really ex-nuns now, maybe they have a career in music ahead of them. As you can imagine, TFM has a name for their groups.

Nuns and Rosaries.
