Nuns' Bank Account Frozen: Your Patriot Act at Work
The nuns of the Holy Name Monastery provide yet another reason we don't need to give the Government more power under the Patriot Act:
The sisters say the monastery's main bank account was frozen without explanation in November, creating financial headaches and making the Benedictine nuns hopping mad. They were told the Patriot Act was the cause.
"I think the Patriot Act is unwise, let's say, and that if it happened to us, it can happen to anybody," said Sister Jean Abbott, the monastery's business manager. "I think people need to know that nobody is safe from, in some cases, really ridiculous scrutiny."
Sen. Russ Feinglod provides a Patriot Act update in his Daily Kos diary.
