Benedictine Sisters Take on CocaCola AND Walmart

The Benedictine Sisters of Boerne's St. Scholastica Monastery want to see
more fairness
in CEO/worker compensation. The Coca Cola chief executive was paid more than $32 million last year, compensation that the nuns feel doesn't serve the best interest of the stockholders. Or the employees.
In the Walmart case, a whistle-blower exposed the company's practice of spying on certain troublesome shareholders, including the nuns of St. Scholastica Monastery.
I love it when Boerne makes this kind of national news; we should all be very proud of these women.

You go sisters! Security threat indeed. Wal-Mart who the heck do you think you are? I have looked at a couple of other blogs on this issue, one in California, where the 2 comments were interesting, and oddly against the nuns.
Our sisters work not only for social justice, but run Head Start, and so many other things. It's time we comment on some of these blogs to set the record straight.
