Father Antonio Rungi (mentioned below) has withdrawn his plans for the 'Sister Italy' contest to my dismay. After the announcement gained global interest, down came the naysayers and the wagging fingers from the upper echelons terrified that someone within organized religion had once again made something of a blunder.
"'My superiors were not happy. The local bishop was not happy, but they did not understand me either,' Father Antonio Rungi told Reuters by telephone from his convent in southern Italy on Tuesday".
So there comes and goes my interest in this Nun pageant, back to square one to say the least. Instead of celebrating the social and charitable achievements of the Sisters of Italy with a friendly event that has mild worldwide interest, we are told once again that Nuns are boring.
