Wal Mart hates nuns, Or this week's steel cage death match is the Greedy Bastards v. Girl Power

We found this news nugget via our pals at Raw Story:

Wal-Mart labels Boerne nuns a security threat
Nydia LopezKENS 5 Eyewitness News
It's a David versus Goliath battle heating up in the Hill Country — a group of nuns from Boerne is taking a stand against Wal-Mart.
The corporate giant reportedly labeled the nuns a security threat after they raised questions about Wal-Mart's business practices.
Sister Susan Mika is part of the Benedectine Sisters, which is part of the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility. The center has been questioning Wal-Mart's business practices for years.
"We've been raising questions with them for about 17 years, so it's not like they don't know it," Sister Mika said.
Now, the sisters find themselves on Wal-Mart's security threat list. Sister Mika said the group has been wrongly labeled.
"In no way have we ever been a threat to the company in that sense. We might be a threat in the kind of question that we're asking, but not a security threat," Sister Mika said.
The sisters have raised questions on wages, human rights, health care and the pay disparity between CEOs and workers. They believe that's why Wal-Mart has launched a surveillance operation on the small church group.
"We wanted to find out more about what was actually happening, and did they do any surveillance on us, either personally or as a community, and to let us know what that would be, and to apologize to us," Sister Mika said.
Calls from KENS 5 to a Wal-Mart spokesperson went unreturned.
The nuns say they want an apology and will continue to raise concerns and issues until someone launches an investigation into thousands of allegations against Wal-Mart.

We here at Monkey Muck HQ have been boycotting Wal Mart for years now. How about you join us? Let's not give those evil bastards our hard earned money. They'll only use it to spy on nuns anyway.

Nuns with guns? Now that's a bad habit (rimshot please). I think the photo can also be found in the "Nuns Having Fun" calendar:

Apparently, these nuns belong to The Order of St. Cheney.
