Nuns attend a Tea Party in IL


But even among sisters, there are divisions, which is why we have a photograph of three nuns waving their "Don't Tread on Me" flag at a recent tea party "Taxed Enough Already" rally in Palatine.

"We find today's government and society to have sunk in a morass of atheism, filth and greed, and that is why we are on the streets, backing the people who have strong faith and family values," e-mails Mother Mary Patrick, a founder of the fledgling Daughters of Immaculata community in Libertyville, a group of four nuns with a median age of 55. She says she prefers e-mail because "we take a vow of poverty and find 'gabbing' on the phone not something in line with that."
