Late Nite: Nun Sense!

I love nuns. I think it began when I was seven and my aunt told me that

Get thee to a nunnery

was one of Shakespeare’s jokes, and it was a ye olden slang term for bordello, as well as a place where nuns live.

When Vatican 2 hit, it changed nuns. They became hip, like Mary Tyler Moore in that movie with Elvis Presley (it sucked, IMO). And of course The Flying Nun.

Recently nuns have been getting grief from the Vatican for being outspoken.

No uppity nuns!

shrilled the churchmen.

But nuns are rad. Or as Colbert said,

Radical feminists

Now the group of Catholic Sisters calling themselves Nuns on the Bus have kicked off their tour, though on their fist stop in Ames, Iowa, Republican (and Catholic) Congressman Steve King fled in terror:

leaving a small typed note taped on the door of his newly opened Ames office that said he was meeting with voters across his newly redrawn Iowa 4th Congressional District.

The nuns want to let elected officials know the wretched impact Senator Paul Ryan’s budget plan would have if it passes. But it looks like little Stevie was scared and ran off, leaving nary a staffer to be hospitable to the sisters. I hope he confesses his cowardice and inhospitality, and his priest gives him 30 full rosaries for being a chicken.

Damned nuns are actually paying attention to the teachings of that radical Jewish trouble maker, Rabbi Yeshua bar Yosef! That will never do, they are only supposed to listen to the teachings of Papa Ratzi!

LISA!
I’ve heard that Nuns have *ick* Lady parts…. I’m sure that get grief from the Vatican for that alone!

Steve King is a well-known racist and a despicable ideologue. My only regret about not living in his district is that I can’t vote for his opponent. No big surprise to me that he also turns out to be a coward who can’t defend his policy positions to a group of old women armed with rosaries.

You mean, as in, “Steve King’s big mouth is clearly compensating for his tiny little P-word?”

I understand getting smacked with those rulers can really hurt.

These nuns don’t hit with rulers, though they are hitting the rulers where they hurt!

Or will do, if any of them ever let themselves be met face to face. It’ll be interesting to see how many Republican luminaries pull a stunt like King did.

Bad habits, too.

Don’t laugh too hard, or Gidget Boniva will make you take a harder-bone pill. Not to be confused with the harder-boner pills.

One of those truly stupid situations where because the right attacks some insipid and reactionary medieval institution for daring to TRY to step into the 20th or 19th century. . . we stupid liberals elevate that institution to hero status.

Not. Still stupid. Still dumb. Initiate a conversation about liberation theology and I am all ears. But if as Gore Vidal says religion is entertainment for stupid people this is more of the same.

Do Blue Nuns on a bus have Vaginas?
