A WSJ guest editorial takes on the nuke-protesting nuns

I have never gotten into the habit wars, having known a few nuns who managed to be wonderful witnesses to God's love without them, but I have to agree with my husband, who remarked that if these women wanted to demonstrate against the nuclear arsenal, it's hard to imagine a more powerful protest than three nuns in habits keeping prayerful vigil, praying the rosary at the gates. Real non-violence. Real witnessing, there.
