Today when listening to the news, or reading something that was going on, I heard this story about Martha Stewart spending all this time with another inmate, a Catholic Nun called Sister Carol Gilbert. The first thought I had was why was there a nun in prison? I could not believe there was not one reporter who seem to know why we have a nun in the big house. Sister
Carol Gilbert is a hero to me and a traitor and major criminal to Bush. Here is some of her story.
SENTENCING STATEMENT -- SISTER CAROL GILBERT, OP
JULY 25, 2003
For many months I have pondered what to say, if anything at all. St. Francis once said, "Preach the Gospel at all times, if necessary use words." It seems that today a few words are necessary.
For the past ten months we have tried to cooperate with these courts. We have been asking since day one -- what are the charges? What is Title 18, U.S. Code, Section 2155, if not sabotage?
We are not saboteurs. Today, we ask no more questions.
We know something is very wrong with a system that can incarcerate us for years in prison for inspecting, exposing and symbolically disarming America's Weapons of Mass Destruction.
We know we should be acquitted for upholding the United States Constitution that declares all laws and treaties to be the supreme laws of the country. Article 6, Section 2 of the United States Constitution "declares this constitution and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuant thereof, and all Treaties made, or which shall be made under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution of laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding."
I wanted to put her complete statement here, because she is worth the effort, but I want you to know there are many who are suffering in the name of peace. I am no longer a catholic, but Sister Gilbert would have a good chance of bringing me back if she was Pope.
