Nancy Pelosi: Holier Than Thou

Nancy Pelosi’s abuse of religious ideals is so brazen as to be embarrassing. When she voted against partial-birth abortion she received a tongue lashing from Pope Benedict XVI.

The Holy See’s press office released this statement saying, "His Holiness took the opportunity to speak of the requirements of the natural moral law and the Church's consistent teaching on the dignity of human life from conception to natural death which enjoin all Catholics, and especially legislators, jurists and those responsible for the common good of society, to work in co-operation with all men and women of good will in creating a just system of laws capable of protecting human life at all stages of its development."

On May 6, 2010 at a Catholic Community Conference on Capitol Hill, Pelosi said she believes she must pursue public policies “in keeping with the values” of Jesus Christ, “The Word made Flesh” and proceeded to argue its merits.

At the conference, “Knuckles” Pelosi said she is often asked what her favorite word is. She replied, “The Word”.

"It says it all for us…And that Word is, we have to give voice to what that means in terms of public policy that would be in keeping with the values of the Word. The Word. Isn't it a beautiful word when you think of it? It just covers everything. The Word."

Pelosi is selectively religious. She pontificates when it suits her agenda while receiving little criticism from the secular media. Let a Republican try that. They’d go down in flames.

Much the same could be said of Joe Biden.

They say these things to pander to the Catholic voter and what irks me is that it seems to work.

If a Catholic buys this, are they any better than the ones who spew this hypocrisy? Or are they just plain ignorant to the religion they say they adhere to?
