Pelosi & The Pope Part II

We know what Pope Benedict XVI had to say to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi when it comes to her beliefs on abortion. So what did she have to say to the Pope!

 We know what Pope Benedict XVI had to say to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi when it comes to her beliefs on abortion. So what did she have to say to the Pope!

The meeting that took place Wednesday while Pelosi visited Italy comes after her remarks last year where she said the church had long debated when human life begins. Leaders of the Catholic church in the U.S. immediately corrected those comments, saying the church has always maintained life begins at conception. Still, Pelosi, a Catholic, maintained her position.

So here's what the Pope had to say to Pelosi. He told her that Catholic politicians have a duty to protect life "at all stages of its development." The Pope spoke of the church's teaching "on the dignity of human life from conception to natural death."

Benedict said all Catholics - especially legislators, jurists and political leaders - should work to create "a just system of laws capable of protecting human life at all stages of its development."

So what did Pelosi have to say about the meeting? Her office issued an e-mail that did not mention the abortion issue. She said it was with "great joy" that she and her husband, Paul, met with Benedict.

In an attempt to get Pelosi's response to what the Pope told her about abortion, I have e-mailed her office seeking that information.

Stay tuned...but don't hold your breath!

    My Lord did anyone see this woman on T.V. the other night. If she kissed Osama and Biden's butt anymore her face would of been brown. I was hoping a bug would fly in her mouth to shut her pie hole up. This woman is an egatistical piece of work and is anough to make you throw up when looking at her and her demeanor.

    Any response from Nancy Pelosi will be filtered thru the mindset of political correctness. The legislator who votes yes for abortion will be held as accountable as the abortionist on Judgement Day.

    Catholics teach against abortion. If I were a public leader I would make sure everyone knew I was against it. She has the ability to help save lives. It's amazing how stupid and above God some people think they are!!! Truly sad! It doesn't matter what she thinks is right or wrong, it's what God thinks is right and wrong! How can you be a Catholic and be ok with abortion? you can't!

    CITIZEN Pelosi is free to believe what she wants, regardless of what the facts show. SPEAKER Pelosi, however, is not. When the Catholic church told her she was wrong, she needed to acknowledge it. It is unacceptable that lawmakers want to ignore the facts to fit their beliefs and agenda. If she's doing it on this issue how do you know she's not doing it on others? At the very least, Speaker Pelosi needs to come clean and admit her stance on abortion is not based on the view of the Catholic church, but her own personal beliefs. I would also submit to you that everything a lawmaker does and the positions they take ARE the business of all of us, and it's about time we start holding them accountable for their words and actions!

    Nancy Pelosi personifies liberalism. She can't win with facts or knowledge. She has been proven wrong by the highest Christian Leader on the face of the planet. Pelosi is so arrogant that if she had an audience with God himself, she would probably ignore his direction. A LIBERAL NEVER ADMITS TO BEING WRONG AND NEVER CHANGES THEIR OPINION EVEN IN THE FACE OF IRREFUTABLE FACT. As I have said many times before.....facts are irrelevant to them UNLESS it happens to support their view. She now has absolutely no leg to stand on where the abortion issue is concerned, so let's see if she still claims to be an 'ardent Catholic'. She either has to change her opinion or leave the church. To Lisa in St.Louis; Any conversation Pelosi has while she is in office representing our nation abroad is ABSOLUTELY OUR BUSINESS. If she flies over to the Vatican on her own dime as a private citizen, then it isn't our business. This is not the case here.

    What Pelosi said to the Pope is none of your business.
