In 2002, three Dominican nuns saw it as their religious calling to break into a missile silo in Colorado, call attention to the atrocities of the threat of nuclear war, and land in jail for their beliefs. For these women, it was a sacred act. For the U.S. government it was something much different.
The religious right labeled them fanatics, the left called them Joans of Arc, and the justice system sentenced them each to several years in federal prison.
