    The Sister of Social Service retires from her post leading the “Catholic social justice lobby” that often vocally criticized the U.S. bishops for their stance against abortion and gender ideology.

    Sister Simone Campbell, the 74-year-old leader of “Nuns on the Bus,” retired last month as executive director of Network, which bills itself as a “Catholic social justice lobby.”

    But don’t expect her to retire quietly to her Sisters of Social Service chapel in California any time soon, for the sister who was dubbed a “rock star” by the secular media for publicly defying the U.S. bishops is giving every indication she will continue her activism.


    “My life is politics,” she told America magazine.

    “I’m sure that the Spirit will lead me to some other form of mischief,” she assured U.S. Catholic.

    And she vowed to continue to “seek fairness, justice and equity for the least among us,” according to Religion News Service.

    Notably, those “least among us” never have included the hundreds of thousands of unborn children aborted every year, a towering omission from longstanding Catholic social and moral teaching. When she was pinned down by Catholic News Agency about why the unborn were ignored in her agenda, she said, “[Abortion] is above my pay grade. It’s not the issue that we work on. I’m a lawyer. I would have to study it more intensely than I have.”

    And therein lies the problem.

    Sounds like she's on a power trip and is willing to ignore that issue to continue her climb.

    My jaw still drops at the disparity between her and Sr Dede Byrne. I mean, anytime you see a sister without a habit that should be your first clue, but man talk about contrast. One is shoehorning her ideology into her vocation, and the other is Sr Dede—properly subservient to Christ, His Church, and the vows she took.
