Catholic Nuns in Pa. Build a Chapel to Block the Path of a Gas Pipeline Planned for Their Property

The Adorers have 2,000 nuns around the world whose core beliefs include environmental protection and activism. Zauzmer writes, “U.S. appeals court judges have ruled inconsistently on whether federal law protects religious groups from eminent domain in such cases.”
