Sister Dorothy story from Revealer

http://www.therevealer.org/archives/main_story_001653.php
The story is troubling just the same way that it is troubling how abortion and birth control issues take priority with some folks over the death penalty and living wages. Janet Hardwick's comment is typical - Dorothy Stang's call was apparently not legitimate for Ms. Hardwick. I do not understand, and I do not desire to judge. But we have to stand up for the poor, and we have to answer our call the best we can. It looks like to me Dorothy Stang courageously answered her call, and that in itself makes the social cons angry. If that's all it takes to upset them, then I'll have to hope that maybe someday I can too.
