A group of Catholic nuns who successfully redirected the route of a proposed pipeline off their land are joining other religious leaders in protest of the ongoing project.

The Sisters of Loretto, along with members from Baptist, Presbyterian and Unitarian churches, delivered a 36,000-signature petition to Gov. Steve Beshear's office at the Kentucky Capitol Tuesday. The group of about 50 demonstrators called on the governor to oppose the project. They say the pipeline, which would carry flammable natural gas liquids through 14 counties, is a danger to the environment.

An office staffer accepted the petition from the group, as they gathered inside the governor's office and sang a religious hymn.

The company building the Bluegrass Pipeline is currently securing easements along the project's proposed 180-mile path in Kentucky.
