You are right as far as it goes, and I apologize if I took you the wrong way. Still and all, it seems there is tremendous resistence among some Freepers to recognize that whatever happens to be the accepted dogma of the day is automatically enshrined as an eternal verity. It was that attitude that allowed Christians to burn “witches” and torture heretics for centuries without a hint of guilt. What was an eternal verity then that led to thousands of brutal and grotesquely painful murders in the name of God (”Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.”) is considered a quaint mistake from the ignorant old days.

People should give a bit more though (and tolerance) about what they believe to be absolute “revealed truth,” considering the frequency with which it changes.

So, in defending Pelosi, I take it that you are pro abortion or choice, as they like to say.
