Wow, she has big cajones, a really impressive feat for her. To try to pretend that she’s an “ardent, practicing Catholic” and that the Catholic church is undecided on the issue of abortion. My my goodness.
I’m pure protestant, but I do know that the Catholic church’s stand on abortion has been made crystal clear to me, to the world, to Ms. Pelosi.
Pelosi’s performance was disgusting. Defending Obama on the grounds that the Catholic CHurch has never settled on when life begins is beyond disingenuous. Brokaw was surprised, and said something to the effect that the Catholic Church has been very clear in its position. Pelosi’s response? That the position is less than thirty years old, the debate within the church continues, and if the Catholic church can’t decide, who are we to reach definitive conclusions. I was offended by her willful ignorance and deliberate falsification of church teaching. If she disagrees with it or believes it to be wrong, it’s a free country and she can believe what she wants. That said, it really is digusting that pro-abortionist politicians pretend to be Catholic and either ridicule, ignore or distort the Catholic church’s well known and clear teachings.
Why do the bishops abdicate their teaching responsiblities when self-proclaimed and self-serving Catholics distort or fabricate church teachings? Do these folks really think we are that stupid? My goodnoess, how did the Church fail so badly?
“Im pure protestant, but I do know that the Catholic churchs stand on abortion has been made crystal clear to me, to the world, to Ms. Pelosi.”
And it has been crystal clear for centuries.
“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.
