Nuns protest pipeline that would go through their land in Marion County

The Sisters of Loretto are unlikely international superstars. But that they are, since their resistance to the planned Bluegrass Pipeline has put them on Internet sites from Mother Jones magazine to Slate. Mother Jones called them "a feisty cadre of nuns," while Slate headlined its take "Anti-fracking nuns" and hailed "the unlikely activism of sisters who have lived on remote land for 200 years."
