PHOTOS: Catholic Nuns Protesting GOP Budget Cuts Visit GOP Rep. King’s Office

By Pat Garofalo

As ThinkProgress reported yesterday, a group of Catholic nuns has kicked off a nine-state bus tour to protest cuts to the social safety net that were included in the House Republican budget. The nuns will be visiting the offices of ten Republican lawmakers, stopping yesterday the office of Rep. Steve King (R-IA). Here are photos of the event from the Des Moines Register:

When asked for comment on the visit, King’s office responded with an email that “did not say anything specifically about the nuns,” according to the Associated Press. The nuns will be visiting the office of House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) today.

1. Does anyone know when they are scheduled to hit Harrisburg, PA? The map looked like it.

2. Could the Catholic

 

church excommunicate these nuns for their actions. Or would that be like throwing gas on a fire.
