This is the statement of the Vatican Press Office on Today’s visit by ardent [pro-abort] Catholic Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Following the General Audience the Holy Father briefly greeted Mrs Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, together with her entourage.

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 cooperation 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.

This is a pretty strong statement compared to the usual diplo-speak.

Still, I think that a little old fashioned Inquisition might have been helpful. Maybe next time.
