The following comes from an October 22 CNS News article by Lauretta Brown:
(CNSNews.com) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) criticized Republican attempts to defund Planned Parenthood and repeal the Affordable Care Act in the House’s upcoming vote on a reconciliation bill Friday.
“Republicans are moving forward with a GOP reconciliation package that once again lays the groundwork for another Republican government shutdown. It’s a waste of time. It will go nowhere in the Senate,” Pelosi said.
“It will be their 61st vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and they will of course be wanting to defund Planned Parenthood, destroy the Affordable Care Act, dismantle newfound health security for millions of Americans,” she continued.
“It doesn’t have to be this way,” Pelosi emphasized. “Instead we could be working together recognizing a Republican Congress, a Democratic president, the ability for Democrats to use their leverage legislatively to have compromise for the good of the American people. That’s what Pope Francis told us to do.
“He said leaders should have transparency. That would be wonderful – openness, he said. He used the word openness and pragmatism, and he said we have to move forward for the good of the people. Let’s in the spirit of Francis do that,” she added.
Pelosi was referencing the Pope’s September 24th speech before Congress in which he praised “openness and pragmatism” as qualities of a good leader, although it was in the context of countries resuming dialogue.
Pelosi cited these same words of Pope Francis, again in relation to avoiding a government shutdown, in an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell shortly after the pope’s September visit.
“His Holiness gave us good guidance – to be in dialogue – that was the message of Saint Thomas Merton, of Thomas Merton, in terms of dialogue – find a path, go forward … make progress, go forward … respect other people’s views, and come to solutions that do just that,” Pelosi told Mitchell. “So, I feel quite certain that we’ll keep government open, because it’s the right thing to do.
Pelosi the “theologian” strikes again!!
This is ridiculous. It is like writing about what Satan is asking us to do to foster growth in the Church. This woman (lady is too polite a term to use) is lost in space, and out to lunch. She has no idea about anything with one exception: how to dismantle godliness. She is a triple disgrace against God, true femininity, and America. Why anyone in the right mind would listen to this perversion of all that is good, holy and true shows what a terrible mess we are in.
I agree Pilar. There are her like minded followers too. Pretty disgraceful.
Be GLAD the we have ‘CHINO Nancy’ in congress right now.
Her Heir Apparent is no less than State Senator Mark “Kiddie Porn King” Leno – Now acting as the new leader of the old Larry Brinkin / Terry Bean racist / Pederast – toddler rape/porn ring, apparently run out of the ‘in=human=rights’ commission in Sodom by the Sea.
California’s Fight Over Jessica’s Law
“AB 50, as it appeared on the Assembly floor last week, would have allowed 100 items of knowingly possessed child pornography before triggering penalties.
“Items” might include CD-ROMs, capable of containing tens of thousands of pornographic images.
The bill would not have instituted a statewide GPS tracking…
And much of the kidnapping of children and teens is for sex trafficking. One woman just wrote an article about how they tried to abscond with her daughter when she went into a store in Detroit, Michigan, alone. Luckily the mother caught on about the car that had sped to the back and a few other things and went in to get her daughter. The police confirmed her suspicions. They are kidnapping boys too.
Yes Anne, correct. And fwiw, Pope Francis just appointed an Archbishop in Italy this week who has a history combatting sex trafficing.
St. Thomas Merton? I don’t think so…. no wonder she is so confused.
Why is this amazon not excommunicated. She totally supports abortion and is ultra pro sodomy. Today she pushed forward Bernie Sanders’ platform, and no one can deny that she is a CINO. She is typically what graduated before being brainwashed from Immaculate Heart High School in the late 60’s, even though she did not attend this infamous immoral institution.
OMG!!! This woman rides in on her broom straight from Hell. She speaks for the Pope???? And where is her Bishop on this. She is costing people their very souls.
And the Church is sllent.
This woman has what is called in the field of education “reversals”. She does everything backwards. What the Church teaches is wrong, she says is right, and what the Church teaches is right, she says is wrong. I often wonder how she ever got through college even since she has no comprehension of what she reads.
Her standing in the Catholic Church should be treated as if she were Castro, Tito, or Hitler. Those three infamous monsters were baptized, but were excommunicated, but so far Pelosi is still a normal Catholic. She picks and chooses what she wants to profess, and discards everything she disagrees with. She disliked Pope Benedict, but seems to fawn over Pope Francis. This is cafeteria Catholicism and is a sign of demonic disorientation. Ave Maria Purrissima !
