MAGA Nuns Refuse to Apologize for Trump Support: 'Joyful Duty to Support President'
Viral nuns say Trump 'upholds the Gospel of Life'
The three MAGA-masked nuns, who went viral after they were photographed behind President Donald Trump during his rally in Circleville, Ohio, on Saturday, are now standing their ground in support of the president.
The nuns maintained it is their duty to support Trump, who is pro-life.
The Children of Mary sisters said in a statement:
“There are indeed many issues concerning the quality of life that need to be addressed."
"However, the preeminent issue is the intrinsic evil of taking innocent human life through abortion."
“We, as faithful Catholics, consider it our duty, a joyful duty, to support a president, regardless of party affiliation, who upholds the Gospel of Life.”

Last week, the three sisters went viral as they clapped behind Trump at his rally.
Pictures showed one of them holding a Bible, while the other held rosaries.
The "nuns" cheered along with the audience when Trump blasted the former vice president over his son, Hunter Biden's "Ukraine, crack, and sex" scandal.

The fact is you didn't do a good job Joe, you let us down." pic.twitter.com/0sK8kDf62l— Steve Guest (@SteveGuest) October 24, 2020
"This can’t be real," Twitter user Adam Parkhomenko commented while sharing an image of one of the nuns holding up a Bible just before Trump took to the podium.
Trump, who was a Presbyterian, revealed that he now identifies as a non-denominational Christian, according to The Sun.
Speaking to the Religious News Service, Trump said: “Though I was confirmed at a Presbyterian church as a child, I now consider myself to be a non-denominational Christian."
