The Daily Telegraph reports:
The under-fire Olympics security firm G4S is facing further embarrassment after an 82-year-old nun broke into a US nuclear facility, forcing it to shut down. Sister Megan Rice, along with two male accomplices aged 63 and 57, allegedly used bolt cutters to get in to the Y-12 national security complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
It is the US government’s only facility for storing weapons-grade enriched uranium, a key component in nuclear bombs. WSI Oak Ridge, the contractor responsible for protecting the facility, is owned by G4S, which failed to provide enough security guards for the Olympics. That led to the British government having to use military personnel for the Games.
The groups’s chief executive Nick Buckles recently told MPs the Olympics fiasco was a “humiliating shambles for the company.”
In the latest debacle Sister Megan, from Nevada, got through four fences to gain access to the Highly Enriched Uranium Materials Facility, which holds the enriched uranium.
I’m all for the presence of religion in the public square, but it must be subject to the same rules as everyone else. Rice’s demonstration of contempt for the law is about arrogance as much as it is about whatever Christian virtue she is meant to be proclaiming.
