Group of Catholic Nuns Challenges Mitt Romney to Experience What It Is to Be Poor
Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. Iâm Rob Lorei. Coming up todayâ Catholic nuns want former Massachussetts Governor Mitt Romney and whoâs personal worth is estimated to be in the hundreds of millions of dollarsâthey want him to know what itâs like for struggling families across the country. Weâll talk with a leading activist nun in just a moment. But first- four listener comments about yesterdayâs interview with Michelle Williams- she is working with the family of Javon Neal- the 16 year old who was shot and killed by Tampa police officers three weeks ago. The police say he was armed with a shotgunâbut many residents of the apartment complex where he was killed say the killing was unjustified. Hereâs what four listeners had to say.
The group of Catholic Sisters who gained international attention for their âNuns on the Busâ tour have invited Mitt Romney to spend a day with them to learn about the needs of struggling families.
Sister Simone Campbell, the executive director of NETWORK, a National Catholic Social Justice Lobby, described Romneyâs latest ad regarding welfare as âterribly divisive and demeaningââ¦ hereâs a portion of that adâ¦. Tape Sr. Campbell joins us live on the phone.comments powered by Disqus
