On Meet the Press this morning... MR. BROKAW: Senator Obama saying the question of when life begins is above his pay grade, whether you're looking at it scientifically or theologically. If he were to come to you and say, "Help me out here, Madame Speaker. When does life begin?" what would you tell him?
REP. PELOSI: I would say that as an ardent, practicing Catholic, this is an issue 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. And Senator--St. Augustine said at three months. We don't know. The point is, is that it shouldn't have an impact on the woman's right to choose. Roe v. Wade talks about very clear definitions of when the child--first trimester, certain considerations; second trimester; not so third trimester. There's very clear distinctions. This isn't about abortion on demand, it's about a careful, careful consideration of all factors and--to--that a woman has to make with her doctor and her god. And so I don't think anybody can tell you when life begins, human life begins. As I say, the Catholic Church for centuries has been discussing this, and there are those who've decided...
“But they did not hear me, nor incline their ear: but hardened their neck that they might not hear me, and might not receive instruction.” (Jer. 17:23)
“Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness: that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.”( IS. v.20)
“That all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity.” (2 Thess. 2:11)
Apostates like Nancy willfully blind themselves to the truth, yet cling to the Church, claiming they remain members of it.
Cooperation with grave evils such as abortion automatically excommmunicate the cooperators from the Church.
Yet, as you say, Catholic teaching is clear, but the willfully arrogant, proud, and evil blind themselves to its very clear teaching.
Scriptures are clear that the instructed who willfully cling to grave sin in this world will be punished very severely in the afterlife.
I love your tag!
Excellent Coleus. Thanks for sending this.
Thank God for Pelosi’s big mouth. Now I am waiting to see if anyone questions Biden about this. He reminds me of those rosary-swinging nuns who loudly champion women’s rights.
I think Dr. laura said “Life begins when the dog dies and the kids move out”
What part of practicing Catholic makes sense here? Life begins at conception. There has been no ambiguity in that definition from the time teachings in the church were written down almost 2000 years ago. I was pleased to see that Archbishop Wuerhl of Washington denounced her words as being untrue. She should be refused communion as she is not in the state of grace to receive it.
Nancy “San Fran Nan” Pelosi will get hers on judgment day when she is held accountable for her actions to harm the helpless and support abortion.
Pelosi parades her ignorance of Church teaching for everyone to see.
