Pelosi & The Pope

Don't you wish you were a fly on the wall for a planned meeting between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Pope Benedict?

Don't you wish you were a fly on the wall for a planned meeting between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Pope Benedict?

Whether you are a fan of Speaker Pelosi, despise her, or don't care one way or the other, you have to admit the meeting between the two ought to be pretty interesting.

Pelosi plans to meet with the Pope while on a visit this week to Italy. You may remember Pelosi, who is Catholic, was rebuked by a number of U.S. Bishops last summer when she told Tom Brokaw that the church itself had long debated when human life begins."… I would say that as an ardent, practicing Catholic, this is an issue that I have studied for a long time. And what I know is, over the centuries, the doctors of the church have not been able to make that definition … St. Augustine said at three months. We don't know. The point is, is that it shouldn't have an impact on the woman's right to choose."

Pelosi's comments drew quick response from Catholic leaders. Washington D.C. Archbishop Donald Wuerl said it has always been the church's teaching that life begins at conception. Denver Archbishop Charles Chaput and his Auxiliary Bishop James Conley said in a statement  that Catholic teaching on the subject was unequivocal - abortion is gravely evil - and that "Catholics who make excuses for it … fool only themselves."

Pelosi stood by what she said even following those comments by the Catholic leaders. Aren't you curious about what she might say to the Pope?

    It is nothing more than pomp. Nancy Pelosi did the same thing when she visited the new Lakewood Church in Houston Tx. She spoke with Pastor Osteen of course on camera and played the part. It appears most everything she stands for is against the cause of Christ. Despite visiting clergy in high places she still believes in killing babies otherwise known as abortion.

    Actually I wish I was meeting the Pope and Pelosi was the fly on the wall. And we had a fly swatter.

    I would love to be a fly on that wall. Pope: Now Nan, you know that killing babies is against God and you shall not take communion henceforth. Pelosi: But Pope, we Democrats love to kill babies. It's a main leg of our stool. I mean, I tried to convince Americans that putting money in the spendulous bill for contraception was a good idea because less people in the country makes it easier for us, the government, to take care of everybody and then no one will ever have to be self-sufficient agian. But since I sound like a brain-dead fool when I speak, no one understood that and the only option left is to kill the babies. I think God will understand. It's for the children. Pope: How did you get in here? How did you get elected? Oh, yeah, you're from San Francisco. That explains it. Depart from me, you heathen. I expect it would go something like that.
