A French nun tackled an eco-protester on the construction site of a new Catholic religious center in Saint-Pierre-de-Colombier, France. From Fox News:
On Saturday, members of the eco-group Les Amis de la Bourges, which is translated to friends of the village, attempted to protest the building of a new religious complex in Saint-Pierre-de-Colombier. The construction was surrounded by a group of nuns from the Missionary Family of Notre-Dame forming a human chain around the area to stop the activists.
A spokesman for the eco-group Friends of The Village complained, or perhaps whined, that he expected more from the nuns that formed a human chain to prevent the interruption of construction and the smashing of piping for the new center.
“I didn’t expect that,” co-president of the association for the future of the Bourges valley Sylvain Hérenguel told public broadcast channel France 3. “I expected the nuns to be a little reasonable for the public order. The problem is that the religious people decided to resort to violence. I was attacked three times by five people, who snatched me, who wanted to throw me out there. They decided to protect the site with their actions and their bodies.”
Apparently, there is a plant in the area that, according to the ‘Friends,’ needs protection. Well, it appears that one nun decided to plant something, or someone herself.
