Transcript for 'Election Cycle' Hitches a Ride With the 'Nuns on the Bus' on Route to DNC
It's not an easy week to be backing by Paramount from the Republican Convention in Cleveland to the Democratic Convention in Philly this extraordinary expansive heat wave continues some of the hottest air we've seen three to four years temperatures could feel more like a hundred degrees true. I needed a miracle. And who voted answered my prayers from the nuns on the backs. As is the we've got aggrandizing and making the same day in real time. The wedding her on would you take you where rain. I appreciate neighborhood or as well in the name is less. The dedicated we sit the negative bats and didn't travel up. I never bad and the French citizen. We can't believe that you're doing this whole ride so the least we could do was to give you know left. Just a little bit jealous Catholic Charities. And that any rides the bikers that they really go after. To start lying that's on the bus. While we're on the bus because we know that right now in our nation things are being torn apart by politicization. About polarization. And where on the road to say we're. We can come together and what better group to give that message that a group of Catholic sisters. I've got my uniform on I don't you do Yarmouth mass murderers and ran yeah we have learned into the bus featured the and Vegas have to battle but a lot of people still have antiquated views what and then might look like why you guys. Others that. Really good question because. We don't Wear uniforms the way we use to but the big things. Because we know that in order to be with the people at the margins. We need to look more like that we need to be not be intimidating staying meant to get what it again. The gap is the distance between those of the top of those at the bottom of the lowest when he percent of our population has lots. 9% of their income was 34 years lost ground in 34 and in this election have two candidates. Neither of whom are very vocal about their religious beliefs. What you think that says about. Overall wins. The political discourse you know and so what is that can be good. Besides sometimes doubt people wind day trot out there being polite guy. You know a sweater oh look at my faith that got the right colored sweater or don't write badge and that's not the faith is about. The real way faith enters into our decision. Is about affecting our values affecting what we care about like. Reaching out to find how can we create living wages for people working hard or. What do we do about the immigration issue that comes from a deep place where everything the dignity of all people. Which is a faith thing. So. I don't care so much debate and back at sometimes feel better then if they trotted out their religious label. I'd rather see their religious values in action that's what I look for and I think most Catholics be too. And trump isn't noticed by that it trump says he's our book is the Bible. My second favorite book of all time what's my first favorite book. A bygone not think Kate that by adding that the artist does not even close to levels much starting. That they have I wish they'd been a follow up question to half of about a book of the Bible that he really lucky and see what would happen but that didn't happen. It strikes me he wants to be so. Light. And wants to be the star of everything actually I got my biggest hand. The other night when I says that it worries me that he's that. Eager church. A history of being involved in politics you think that's important that you think the church should be in the spiritual realm how my guess as Pope Francis said. We need to meddle in college but. Pop princess Catholics are the ones who see the exploitation of our people the exploitation of our earth. And the fact that policies make a difference. That we can make change happen in both parties there is division and polarization. And so therefore were taken our message to both conventions. That we the people need to heal and that needs talking to each other not Yemeni. I think are gone now. Big occasion air thank you. Andre ratty. Now examination back on their they already.
