You can get it in your habit, you can get it doing hail marys, and you can clearly get it when you find yourself in a servo, without money in your purse.

Just because you’re a woman of the cloth, does not mean that thirst won’t strike you down. But um, maybe you should pay for it afterwards…

Now here’s the real question: is that nun reaching for a beer or a can of Mother?

      She was just making sure Jesus’s dying on the cross was value for money.
      Whats the point of someone dying for your sins if you don’t have sins to be forgiven?
      Shouldn’t all Christians be sinning as much as possible so that their saviours crucifiction and death actualy gain meaning?

      Looks like a bloke in a nun outfit just so he can steal things to be honest

      Actual real Christian Morals and Christian Ethics on show and in action.

      And we allow our children to be brainwashed by this terrible religionist system, and at tax payers expense.

      This is why we must protect and enshrine secular Ethics Classes in our schools so our children are taught real respect and real morals and real ethics.

      Where are all the Christian Bloggers today defending their “faith” - too busy defending that Christian Tony Abbott I guess?

      I can only guess the Nun stole because the Christian Church is too busy and now too poor paying out billions in compensation claims to children who have been raped by Christian Priests. Pity the poor starving children in Africa.

      @ P.Darvio,  “Actual real Christian Morals and Christian Ethics on show and in action.”  No, just the frailty of human nature.  Had she been dressed in tie-dye would you have said “typical hippy”?  Or had she been black?  Or would your answer been too stereotypical?  Does she suffer from an illness?  Is she doing it out of need?  Is she even truly a nun?

      “This is why we must protect and enshrine secular Ethics Classes in our schools so our children are taught real respect and real morals and real ethics.”  Why the schools?  Do you lack the awareness of what is right and wrong that you need a teacher to provide that education?  Do you not know how to show respect to others?  The child first learns in the home.  It is there they are taught right from wrong.  And what if you disagree with the curriculum?  What if it doesn’t reflect YOUR ethical and moral values?  Would you be wrong and they right?  Or they wrong and you right?  And who are you to judge anyway?

      “Pity the poor starving children in Africa.”  You do know of course a lot of aid provided into Africa and on the ground in Africa is provided by faith based organisations?  Without these people and organisations, many many more people would die of starvation.  True they do place restrictions on aid by telling people not to use condoms (and they are very wrong in this attitude) but without this aid, strings attached or no, the UN and local aid agencies would not be able to provide the required care.

      @ Steve, you make good sense but P.Darvio is on a one man crusade to eradicate religion and allows no facts or logic to interfere with his mission

      There has been a recent disclosure of crime figures to show that despite a steady situation for crime generally, there has been a significant increase in what has been termed silver crime or oldies doing it for all states except Tasmania.

      A sign of the times as those times get tougher and tougher with many older people relying on relatively minimal incomes that can be affected greatly by services costs increases and drops in interest rates where some may have term deposits, they likely the lucky ones.

      I suppose it is not too surprising that Convents and the like contain many elderly and even Nuns may get thirstilly desperate in tough times.
      Perhaps the Vatican could look at selling off a lot of prime location real estate to help out.
      Or could we even see politicians and fat cat bureaucrats all taking salary cuts!, suppose it’s back to flying bacon for both.

      I remember once when I was a teenager standing out the front of a shop.  A car with 4 nuns in it (no it’s not the start of a bad joke), reverse parks in front of me.  In the process the Nuns car collides with the car behind it.  The for Nuns get out of the car, look at the damage and just walk off.

      Catholicism is a cop-out religion.  You can do whatever you like, so long as you say “sorry” on your death bed.

      and if that’s what you think Catholicism is all about the you really have no clue.

      How can we be sure that is in fact a nun and not a thief in disguise?

      Looks like an extract out of “Call the Midwife” that was aired on Sunday night, 7 Oct!
