Cops say the elderly Sister was robbed by a man who asked for some water. And to make matters worse she was dressed at the time, in the traditional black and white outfit.

    god bless the nun and may god forgive the individual who acted this way, for all you non believers you will be judged, he who does not accept the lord will not see heaven.

      We won't get to see Atlantis either because both places do not exist.

    Double post? I apologize.
    I don't think that it's any worse that she was in her nun outfit. It's desp.icable for anyone to prey on the elderly, no matter who that older person is. I hope they catch this person and punish him to the full extent of the law.

      Good post tallulah13. Our elderly, as well as children and the animals all need adult protection. We are the keepers of those that can not protect themselves.

      Huh? Didn't God give man dominion over animals, Heaven Sent? Where did he appoint us to be their keepers? Stewards, yes, but not protectors.

    Nuns take a vow of poverty. What was she robbed of?

      AGuest9, do you think a person without shame, cares that a nun has no materialistic gains?

      Good question though. I hope the courts ask him the same question.

    This is pretty sad...What is the world coming to when not only a nun but and elderly women at that get robbed...No one has any respect anymore.

      Jim, many anti-social personalities hide behind the non-believers. That's why it amazes me why many of them are proud NOT to believe in Jesus without realizing how many dysfunctional personalities love that there are so many non-believers in the world and spout out loud about it. Most of these same characters that would rob an elderly person, not to mention being a nun in habit would horrify most of them proudly blogging on this site. Take for example the person stealing my handle and spouting off? Same thing. No shame, only pride. No morals or ethics what to speak of. But, boy oh boy, if someone violated them, they are the squeakiest wheel to ensure they get the oil.

      I keep getting violated and I like it. Oh God! Oooohhhh God

    The nun is living a lie. She needs to turn to Jesus and live right.

      And you're qualified to make these judgments?

      What arrogance...

      You are falling for a troll, Lard. I admit it is hard to tell the difference between the troll imposter HS and the bitter-tongued real HS, but it might be best not to feed the trolls. Or the bitter-tongued real nutcases either, for that matter.

      Al, Lard is the troll. He's answering his own posts as he posses as me and uses other handles on this blog. Talk about fractured personalities. This is only the tip of the iceberg that he's showing.

    So, three nuns go to the zoo. Whilst photographing the gorilla, one nun is pulled in to the cage and viciously ra-ped by the beast. The guards run in and tranqualize it. A week later, the two other nuns visit her in hospital. "Sister, sister, how do you feel?" they ask her sheepishly, as she lay in her hospital bed.

    "How do you think I fee"? she responds, sobbing, "He hasn't written, hasn't called...."

    I laughed my ass off when I read that. So she should have been na-ked? Ha ha ha ha ha!

    Well, all the church-goers get swindled there every Sunday. Why shouldn't the nuns get taken as well?

      ScottK, why would you make an excuse for a liar and a thief?

      He needs to go to prison.

    In the interview the Nun said: "I feel so very sorry for him."

    While i absolutely denounce the actions of the person who robbed this Nun, her show of 'compassion' is what I kinda' think more of what people that practice 'Christianity' is about. Or 'anyone'... believer or non-believer, alike. 'Compassion' is not reserved for those that practice a religion.

    Can't say that I would have shown the 'compassion' I would like to show if it happened to me, however...nice sentiments by this Nun.

    • Sum Dude

      @Peace2All – Peace to you too! 😯

      Would you have defended yourself or tried talking the robber down?
      Wouldn't it be giving the robber a measure of peace if you just gave him all your money?

      Maybe the nun should have said "Nun!" when he asked her how much money she had. lol

      You must be a busy feller these days. I have not seen many posts from you. Or are you just burnt out on this stuff like I was and will be again? And how's your head? I worry about you, bro, but I wish there was some other way to contact you without risk. Oh, well. Maybe I'll track you down when I win the lottery. Gas is too expensive for me these days.

      @Sum Dude

      My good friend...."Sum Dude" !!! 😯 How are ya' brother...? I miss ya'... Yep, been very busy. And, yes, you are correct in that you haven't seen me a lot here on the blogs over the last 4-6 weeks or so, however, I have been back on quite a bit this week. I did get burnt out a bit, and had to take a break for awhile.

      LOL...!!! Ugh... my 'head' is doing better, thanks for asking. Hence one of the many reasons for the hiatus.

      Also, I'm not real fond of the new 'archiving' system. Kind of makes it harder to go back and find one's postings to keep track of multiple discussions, especially when there are a lot of people posting. Ahhhh... the good old days, when you could just scroll up and down and play multiple games of verbal chess !

      Also, haven't seen 'Sir Dude' around much lately yourself, yes...?

      Yes, I too, wish there were a way to be able to contact each other, but I guess it's just not worth the risk. Although, I have seen others put out their email addresses and phone numbers on occasion, but... I don't know man, seems a bit...risky to me.

      Take care brother... Hope to see be chatting with you more here ! 🙂

      Mostly I just scan a bit, look around and find I don't see how anything I could say would make a difference to the average believer. So I haven't been posting much, just reading a bit when I get a chance.
      The sorts of articles they pick for this blog can be such a waste of time, I wonder why they even bother. Ah, I guess I'm still burnt out a bit. And the weather is so nice these days it's more fun to go outside and do stuff, too.
      Whoops – gotta go. 😛

    • Sum Dude

      ...and I should say that you are a very good example for the rest of us. My lack of tolerance demands expression, but you are a very calming influence, I must say. Good choice on that handle, bro. 🙂

      @Sum Dude

      Well... I certainly appreciate the compliments... especially coming from someone as 'sharp' as you. 🙂

      As for my 'moniker'... yeah, I try to be a 'voice of reason' here when I can, but I know you remember having to 'calm me down' a few times, yes...? 😯

      Peace brother...

      Wow a person gets robbed and you place the blame on them? So by your logic I guess its a womans fault if she gets R–ped cause she dressed unnaprpiratley?
      I'm no believer but I'd bet that nun knows more about being a christian than you do yet your so self richteous thinking your better than everyone else on this wolrd and you of all people have the right to pass judgement on people, let alone vicims. Way to act like a christian.

      Lard and bp and ALL your phony handles, you know you are behind writing the phony heavensent post, then you LOL answer yourselves to the pathetic posts you wrote in the first place. Christians aren't fooled by fools such as your pathetic selves..

      Shame on both of you as you celebrate your holiday. April FOOLS day.

      ...this is Satans world, and everyone can be a victim. It's how we live our life, and how we react to the problems of this world that really matter. I like how she did not over react and start swearing or cursing...then say why would god do this to me? I think that people who blame God for any little inconvinience in this life(including death), are going to have a rude awakening, when they are in front of God being judged....and yes we all will be judged.
