Has House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi lost her @#$@^%& mind ?
As anyone with Internet access is aware, in a recent interview on NBC's Meet The Press, Pelosi said the Catholic Church's teaching was unclear as to when life begins. Pelosi had said, "The Doctors of the Church have not been able to make that definition [of when life begins]," and called it "an issue of controversy" throughout the history of the Church. "St. Augustine said at three months. We don't know," said Pelosi.
No sooner had she made this absurd statement, then several Catholic Bishops weighed in with their own statements setting the facts straight......the Church teaches life begins at conception and always has taught that.
Now, it a bizarre about-face, a spokesperson for Pelosi defended the speaker's position as a "pro-abortion Catholic", not because the Church is unclear on when life begins, but because, since not all Catholics believe it, it's OK not to believe it. Huh?
Some folks disagree, so it's OK to disagree?
So, like many other "Catholic" Democrats, Pelosi thinks you can believe anything you wish and still be a good Catholic.....even if those beliefs contradict the clear teachings of the Church.
People like Pelosi and Biden and Kerry amaze me.Why would anyone affiliate themselves with group "xyz" if they don't believe group "xyz" 's teachings.
I do not believe the Qur'an, so I am perfectly comfortable saying I am not a Muslim. I don't believe the Book of Mormon so I have not problem saying I am not a Mormon.Same with Buddhism or Hinduism or the Baptist church.
These politicians should just 'fess up, admit that they are not Catholics and affiliate themselves with whatever church they do believe in.
How complicated is that?
