MSNBC Host Shocked That Pope Francis Opposes Abortion
Life News ^ | Jeffrey Meyer

Posted on 01/22/2014 8:23:04 PM PST by Morgana

Today marks the 41st annual “March for Life” in which thousands of pro-lifers ascend on Washington D.C. to mark the Roe v. Wade decision and show their solidarity in opposition to abortion, many of them faithful Catholics. Not surprisingly, Pope Francis sent out an official tweet showing his support for the “March for Life” in which he said, “I join the March for Life in Washington with my prayers, may God help us respect all life, especially the most vulnerable.”

msnbc6Unfortunately for one MSNBC host, the fact the Pope would show support for one of the Catholic Church’s most sacred values, the protection of all innocent human life, seemed to be too much to handle. During her daily “Tweet of the Day” segment on Jansing & Co., Chris Jansing sniffed that Pope Francis’s pro-life values were “reflective of ways in which the church certainly has not changed.”

Earth to Chris Jansing: The Catholic Church is and always will be pro-life. No amount of pushing from the liberals at MSNBC will change that. Furthermore, the fact that Jansing would claim that the Pope being pro-life is indicative of how the Catholic Church “has not changed” is insulting to hundreds of millions of pro-life Catholics, other pro-life Christians, and other pro-lifers of other faiths or of no faith who draw inspiration from the pro-life witness of the papacy.

CLICK LIKE IF YOU’RE PRO-LIFE!

Such sentiments should be of no surprise to most individuals, as MSNBC consistently sympathizes with the abortion community. In fact, at the time of this posting, MSNBC today has failed to bring on its air a single pro-life individual to talk about the “March for Life.” Instead, the “Lean Forward” network brought on NARAL President Ilyse Hogue and NOW’s Terry O’Neill to slam pro-life activists marching in the “March for Life.”

“Chris Jansing sniffed that Pope Francis’s pro-life values were ‘reflective of ways in which the church certainly has not changed.’”

God’s word never changes. Not that a Satanic snob would ever understand that.

I wonder where he thinks bears $hit? Because if he hasn’t figured out that the Pope is Catholic he can’t possibly know the answer to the other.

Msnbc is no longer the “Lean Forward Network” but has devolved into the “ Fell Flat On Our Face and Can’t Get Up Network”.

MSNBC’s Jansing Rushes to Defend Wendy Davis From Questions Over Biography
By Jeffrey Meyer | January 21, 2014

MSNBC darling Wendy Davis is in some hot water over inaccuracies surrounding her personal biography. According to the Dallas Morning News’s Wayne Slater — no conservative he, by the way — despite Ms. Davis’s own claims, she was 21, not 19 when she was divorced and living in a trailer as a single mother.

Despite the glaring factual inconsistencies in Ms. Davis’s own biography, on January 21, Chris Jansing was quick to rush to her defense. During her daily Jansing & Co. show, Jansing proclaimed Davis a “Democratic rising star” without mentioning that her very own network is in no small way responsible for raising the previously unknown Texas state senator’s rise to national prominence.

Jansing began her segment by immediately sympathizing with Ms. Davis and how her “compelling personal story was a “relatable story of the struggles of a younger mother who overcame adversity to graduate from Harvard Law.” After former Bush/Cheney senior advisor Robert Traynham initially dismissed the seriousness of Davis’s biographical errors, Jansing immediately rushed to the Democrat’s defense. Jansing asked:

… could it just be she misremembered and when she went back and really looked at the facts — sometimes I can’t remember how old I am right now.

The “pancake on the head” one always seems to work best for this situation.

Nov 1, 2013

MSNBC anchor Chris Jansing probed Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Friday about his party’s opposition to President Barack Obama’s health reform law. Priebus laughed when asked whether the nation’s Republican governors who have refused to implement certain aspects of the law are partially responsible for its frustrating roll-out.

Yes, at one time, his name was Lucifer, but somewhere along the way, his name was changed to something else.

Seems to me this fellow might think that Pelosi is a better Catholic than the Pope.

“reflective of ways in which the church certainly has not changed.”

I think that is a GOOD thing!
