Her Eminence, Pope Nancy of the Patriotic American Catholic Church, Speaks

And, as per usual,  subtracts from the sum total of human knowledge:

…CNSNews.com asked Pelosi, who is Catholic, whether she supported her church in the lawsuits it has filed, which argue that the administration’s regulation violates the freedom of religion guaranteed by the First Amendment.

“What about the 43 Catholic institutions [that] have now sued the administration over the regulation that requires them to provide contraceptives, sterilizations, and abortifacients in their health care plans?” CNSNews.com asked. “They say that violates their religious freedom.  Do you support the Catholic Church in their lawsuits against the administration?”

“Well, I don’t think that’s the entire Catholic Church,” Pelosi responded. “Those people have a right to sue, but I don’t think they’re speaking ex cathedra for the Catholic Church.  And there are people in the Catholic Church, including some of the bishops, who have suggested that some of this may be premature,” Pelosi said…

Uh, Nance, old gal – ex cathedra is something the Pope does only very rarely and only to rule on matters of doctrine.  The Pope does not rule on how we govern ourselves.  The Church’s opposition to abortion goes back to the earliest days of the Church and thus requires no, new ruling from the Pope on whether it can ever be allowed – and, so, when 43 Catholic institutions sue the US government in order to fight against a government mandate to violate Church teaching then they are not doing something ex cathedra because they don’t have to…but they are very much defending the teaching of the Catholic Church you claim to belong to.

It really does make you wonder – how did someone this ignorant manage to not only get elected to Congress but manage to become Speaker of the House at one point?  Does anyone on the left side of the aisle have any concern for intellectual ability?  Was it really no more than she was a fountain of (sometimes illegal) fundraising and a sure vote for the left?  Is that all it takes to rise high in the Democrat party?  Basic knowledge and honesty play no role?

    Nancy Pelosi is no more Catholic than she is a Mensa member. She merely uses that definition when convenient, as did Obama when he stated that he was born in Kenya to further his mystique. Liberals often live a lie in order to convince people of their compassion, credibility or whatever the situation calls for. Remember when Hillary broke out with a poor share croppers accent when speaking to the church during the 2008 campaign?

    The main reason Obamacare is such a disaster is because Pelosi wrote it. Obama voted present, as he often does, and made Nancy do the heavy lifting, as she did with little regard for the constitution.

      “You can’t deny women their basic rights and pretend it’s about your ‘religious freedom’. If you don’t like birth control, don’t use it Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs.” Barack Obama

      How far down the rabbit-hole have we gone with these libiots?

        Just the first sentence is a primer in Leftist hyperbole. Starting with the premise of “women’s basic rights”—-the Rabidly Radical Left defines the legal ability to butcher one’s inconvenient results of the pursuit of pleasure to be a “right”. They have repeated this so often that even people who extend the right to life to all, regardless of age or the unfortunate circumstance of being conceived by a pathologically selfish female creature, have started to use the term “abortion RIGHTS” as if it means anything.

        So we start with the fact that the Left has taken a list of things they think females ought to be able to do, and claimed these things as “rights”.

        Then they go on to claim that if the federal government does not pay for these females to do these things, they are being DENIED the RIGHT to do them.

        Both of these concepts are encapsulated in that first sentence of Obama’s—-and it goes downhill from there, as he twists the refusal to allow the government to force people of faith to live by government standards, violating their own, into the very opposite meaning, that being allowed to live according to your own beliefs is the same thing as forcing others to live by them, too.

      Actually, Cluster, while no one knows how much if any of the so-called health care bill had any input from anyone in Congress, it was written by the SEIU and delivered to Congress shortly after Obama was inaugurated.

      Pelosi tries to take credit for it, but I think that is to draw attention away from the fact that the unions bought and paid for Obama and now call the tune.

      This is why I think we should have a law, or even an amendment, that every bill presented to Congress must be written by its sponsor(s), that it be no longer than 100 pages, and that it cover one thing and one thing only. No more omnibus bills.

      And actually, there is no reason for any bill to even approach that length.

        it was written by the SEIU and delivered to Congress shortly after Obama was inaugurated.

        SEIU may have had a great deal of input into the finished product, but the outline of the bill was actually written by convicted felon Robert, Creamer, husband of Illinois (I know, shocking) Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky.

        Spook, I forgot about Creamer’s contribution. I guess I’d better review the Complicit Agenda Media reporting on the origins of the biggest bill to ever get through Congress. I’m sure it was thoroughly covered. /sarc

        It WAS covered, at places like American Thinker. This is what happens when you have 90% of the media in bed with one political party.
