This is amazing. Nancy Pelosi says she has a duty to pursue public policies “in keeping with the values” of Jesus Christ. And how does she think ripping little babies limb from limb would fit into Jesus’ value system.
At a May 6 Catholic Community Conference on Capitol Hill, the speaker said: “They ask me all the time, ‘What is your favorite this? What is your favorite that? What is your favorite that?’ And one time, ‘What is your favorite word?’ And I said, ‘My favorite word? That is really easy. My favorite word is the Word, is the Word. And that is everything. It says it all for us. And you know the biblical reference, you know the Gospel reference of the Word.”
“And that Word,” Pelosi said, “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.
I wish I had more time to really dissect this but I’ve got to take my five year old and the two year old to the doctor. (Yay!) So I open it up to you guys to analyze Pelosi’s statement.
One thing I’ll say while the boy brushes his teeth is that it doesn’t seem Nancy Pelosi is much for the separation of church and state, at least according to this statement. In reality I have to believe that this is just a crass attempt to woo the Christian vote. I have to think that because the alternative is too awful – that she thinks that abortion is in line with the values of Jesus Christ.
I have to go. I look forward to seeing what you have to say.
