Listen, I'll be amongst the first to call foul on scandalous T.V preachers who ought to be first up against the wall for their trying to bilk old folks out of their grandchildren's college funds.....
... but this seems like a nice old lady who has a deep faith - one who would rap your knuckles till they bled - but one who did it cause it was for your own good and wanted to get along.
I don't hate her.
That's because she was Franciscan.
Dude Francis was the original Christian counter-culture cat!
On the other hand, I guess she had a side I wasn't aware of:
I used to see her on TV all the time in the 90s but somehow I'd got her mixed up with Sister Wendy Beckett, who's a whole different thing altogether and fortunately still alive.
Mother Angelica I don't know much about.
It has been my experience that nuns generally are pretty awesome and actually give a fuck about people. They seem to take "serve those in need" seriously. Unlike the rest of the catholic system.
Mother Angelica was great. Her show was the ASMR of the 90s.
re: her comments on terrorism. I don't give much weight (if any) to appeals to terrorism, but to her credit, the good Mother is at least focusing her efforts sensibly, on "terrorism" she has both the means and the obligation to change - community problems perpetuated by regular people like you and me - rather than on some ill-defined, external threat over which the average citizen is told he is powerless - like scary foreigners who hate our freedom, don't watch TV, and by sheer coincidence were trained by the CIA.

Anyone of these people could have stopped 9/11 but they did nothing.
