Four Nuns for Brother Bob
Guns as in nuns.
Chitwood called Herdelin's bar a "cesspool" and a "criminal enterprise."
The nuns say Bob is "a stellar man to be respected."
Sister Francis, with 55 years in the order, called his shore homes “immaculate.”What any of that has to do with the township wanting to see his bar closed is hard to say. Sounds like he's been good to the sisters, letting them use his palaces at the beach when he doesn't have them rented to the likes of Oprah Winfrey and they're grateful.
“He does everything to make us comfortable. We stayed at one of his houses Memorial Day last year,” she said.
“It’s sad anyone would accuse Bob of being a slumlord,” Sister Dorothy, serving for 65 years, said. “I had the pleasure of staying in his homes all free of charge. He’s extremely kind.”
Sister Roberta, serving for 66 years, described Herdelin’s homes as “beautiful and immaculate.”
“He’s very good to us and generous,” Sister Roberta said.
Herdelin is both likeable and, no doubt, generous. But his bar is definitely not a place where the saints go marching in.
