The Gospel, According to the Book of Nancy

By John W. Lillpop

Rarely has Nancy Pelosi been mistaken for a brilliant thinker or a heavy weight in intellectual circles. In fact, calling the Shreeker of the US House an "air head" would be an insult to air everywhere, and a gross exaggeration of her intellectual prowess as well.

Even though she is a certified air head, Nancy Pelosi is one of San Francisco's best and brightest.

As such, she is so smitten with dumb that Pelosi actually believes that her Speakership has been a huge success, despite that pesky 9 percent approval rating that the American people lavish on Congress these days.

The extent to which Pelosi is able to completely deny the truth in order to maintain her own warped, muddled mindset became obvious recently as Pelosi tried her hand at being a theological scholar, on national television, with predictable results.

Attempting to defend her support of abortion rights in response to a question posed by Tom Brokaw on "Meet the Press," Pelosi startled everyone who has ever been, is now, or is even considering becoming a Catholic with this comment, in part:

"I would say that as an ardent, practicing Catholic, this is an issue (abortion) 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."


So, the Speaker of the US Congress supports abortion rights because the Catholic Church has been unable to define the morality or immorality of murdering an innocent fetus?

Is that what this pathetic public figure really meant to say?

Many Roman Catholic bishops consider Pelosi's arguments so far out of line with church teaching that they have issued a steady stream of statements to correct her.

The latest came from Pittsburgh Bishop David Zubik, who said Pelosi, "stepped out of her political role and completely misrepresented the teaching of the Catholic Church in regard to abortion."

Pelosi has done the same with the US Constitution, the rule of law, and common sense wherever she has had the opportunity.

Nancy Pelosi is an embarrassment to her nation, her party, her family,her gender and the Catholic Church.
