Oh, boy....Don't you just love the way this Catholic Archdiocese does business?

They evict a bunch of nuns to pay for pedophile priests' crimes!

Nuns evicted to raise abuse-settlement cash

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles is selling a convent that has housed an order of nuns for more than four decades to help pay for a record-breaking sex abuse settlement.
Three nuns from the Sisters of Bethany order have until Dec. 31 to move out, though an earlier departure "would be acceptable as well," the archdiocese's vicar general said in a letter to the nuns.

"We're just so hurt by this," said Sister Angela Escalera, the order's local superior. "And what hurts the most is what the money will be used for, to help pay for the pedophile priests. We have to sacrifice our home for that?"

In July, the archdiocese announced a record $660 million settlement with clergy abuse victims. Of that, as much as $373 million will be paid by the archdiocese, with the rest coming from insurers and various religious orders.

To help cover the bill, the archdiocese plans to sell up to 50 non-parish properties, including its administrative headquarters. The convent is the first property outside those central offices to be identified as among those to be sold.

I talked with a nun who left her order------------------------------

So perhaps a lot of the sisters should file lawsuits of their own - of their own exploitations. Maybe they could hang onto what they deserve after years of abuse and reveal a few factual murders they could attest to.

If there are any truths to what I have been told.

I personally saw a pregnant nun and I don't think it was in any way an reinactment of the virgin Mary.
