(CNSNews.com) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that her Catholic faith "compels" her to "be against discrimination of any kind" and thus for same-sex marriage.

A reporter asked Pelosi: “Many of the people that are opposed to gay marriage cite their religion as the reason why they're opposed. You're a Catholic that supports gay marriage. Do you believe that religion and the idea that you can support gay marriage can be separated? And how do you grapple with the idea that you support gay marriage as a Catholic?”

Pelosi responded: "My religion has, compels me--and I love it for it--to be against discrimination of any kind in our country, and I consider this a form of discrimination. I think it’s unconstitutional on top of that. "

Pelosi spoke glowingly of the comments President Barack Obama made Wednesday when he said he supported same-sex marriage.

"So I think that yesterday was a great day for America because the president in a very personal, as well as presidential way, made history, and hopefully this will bring people together on the issue," Pelosi said.

Pelosi also said that the president "went a long way" in shortening the difference between the "inevitable and the inconceivable" of the introduction of same-sex “marriage.”

"It’s a matter of time. It's all about time. And on these issues, what is inevitable to some of us is inconceivable to others," she said. "And what we want to do is shorten the difference between the inevitable and the inconceivable," she continued. "And I think the president went a long way in doing that yesterday."

Isaiah 5:20 mentions her kind of faith.

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

Nan your religion is based upon the vanity of your own mind not on the simple, powerful truths of the Gospel. Your attitudes are rebellious mocking God and His Holy Word.

She has already done that to herself by her actions. No formal announcement is necessary.

I'll bet she rarely darkens the door of a Catholic Church ... probably Christmas and Easter only, if that.

Besides her utter lack of knowledge of Christianity and the Constitution, This she-devil surly discriminates against all conservatives.

Oh yes she is.....

"Every week we don't pass a Stimulus package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs."

"I believe in natural gas as a clean, cheap alternative to fossil fuels. It's cheap, abundant and clean compared to fossil fuels."

"We have an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country who need our help along with millions of unemployed minorities. Stock market profits taxes could go a long ways to guarantee these people the standard of living they would like to have as "Americans.""

"We need to pass the health care bill to see what's in it."

That says everything we need to know about socialists! She believes that "inevitable" hopey/changey will further destroy the most prosperous, charitable, moral nation this rock in the cosmos has ever seen? Has she ever read anything about history? Stupid question - most socialists don't and that's why they don't get what works for civilization.

Right, Catholic (Christian)! Can that b*tch get any more hypocritical? I absolutely despise that woman/thing.

Maybe her bishop is afraid the a public excommunication will backfire and give Pelosi victim status. There was a bishop where I live who publically told a “Catholic” pro abortion state assemblywoman to stay away from communion. She got enough sympathy votes to get re-elected. The Republican in the race, who is non-Catholic, blamed the bishop for her narrow defeat. Pelosi is self excommunicated anyway. She will probably need asbestos underwear in the after life

These folks are very odd.

Political positions such as opposition to abortion that are based on religious faith are a violation of separation of church and state.

Political positions such as approval of gay marriage that are based on religious faith are a entirely right, proper and constitutional.

Obviously here political position is not based on religious faith, she just pretends it is on the theory this will disarm the opposition.

More from the article:
While opposing "unjust discrimination" against homosexuals, the Catechism of the Catholic Church says that homosexual acts are "contrary to the natural law" and can never be approved and that marriage is the sacramental union of a man and a woman.

While I have no problem with queers doing their thing behind closed doors, I am sick of them pushing their sick lifestyle and Hollywood including them into almost every show. Even my SO, who is more tolerant than I, is getting perturbed that almost everything we watch has got to have some guys kissing or schmoozing each other. ENOUGH ALREADY!

I'm thinking of starting a movement for heterosexual pride. It would have no basis in religion or morality, but simply about the wonderment of heterosexual intimacy between a man and a woman.

Think: Heteros-R-Us.com. Anyone want to help build a website? I'll pay the initial costs for the URL and building of the website. Freepmail me.

exactly! she has been bringing shame to the Church (and ruin to the country) for years. Alas, the Church is incredibly negligent (to the extreme) in not rebuking and excommunicating her after all this time. She is setting a horriffic example for Christian (and all other) youth — and she is doing it in a very public way in her very public role....all while claiming she is a Christian and even doing it in the name of her socalled faith. So sorry to have to ask but where is the bishop in this?

Wow. And the MSM denigrates the one big TEA PARTY event in DC back when that had no arrests, no violence, no arson, no destruction of property and left the grounds spotless.

MSNBC is going down; CNN is going down (although they lately moderated their reports - think survival); the NY Times, LA times, Boston Globe, and other liberal bird liners are going down.

All of the MSM is losing viewership/readership and losing money. As much as some here like to denigrate Fox News, it is building in viewership. So is the conservative Net news sources and blogs. I expect many of the MSM to go defunct in the next years. Good riddance.
