From the commentary: Reid's and Pelosi's respective religions, both of which (at least according to the churches' official doctrines) ardently oppose abortion, are letting them get away with it...Nancy Pelosi, purportedly Catholic, has long been an open proponent for abortion and today is the leading champion for nationally funded abortion. Pelosi was granted an audience with the sitting Pope. The Pope merely criticized Pelosi for her position and failed to take any disciplinary action for Pelosi's open "propaganda campaign in favor" of abortion. Meanwhile, Pelosi's local priest in San Francisco continues to give her communion -- even though the Pope has stated that those who support abortion should not take part in the Catholic sacrament.

From the commentary: The LDS Presidency has emphatically stated the position of their church, likening abortion to murder: Members of the Church guilty of being parties to the sin of abortion must be subjected to the disciplinary action of the councils of the Church as circumstances warrant. In dealing with this serious matter, it would be well to keep in mind the word of the Lord stated in the 59th section of the Doctrine and Covenants, verse 6, "Thou shalt not steal; neither commit adultery, nor kill, nor do anything like unto it." [Emphasis added.]

From the commentary: But the Mormon Church has taken no "disciplinary action" against Harry Reid. According to the Salt Lake Tribune: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid keeps a copy of the Book of Mormon in his office just off the chamber floor. There's a second copy handy to give away to someone in need of spiritual guidance. The Temple-recommend-carrying Reid is very active in his church, say fellow members in the Washington area. Only the most obedient of Mormons are given "temple recommends." These recommends allow faithful members access to the Church's sacred temple ceremonies. Harry Reid, despite his vocal and public support for legislation that provides federal funds for abortion, is known to have such a "temple recommend."

From the commentary: In the ultimate slap in the face to the Catholic Pope and the Mormon President, Pelosi and Reid have joined in the demand that the congressional health care vote be set for Sunday. Under both Catholic and Mormon doctrines, Sunday is a day of rest, a day set aside for the worship of God. Yet on this Sunday, in the middle of Lent, America's most powerful Catholic and Mormon are abandoning God in favor of nationally funded abortion on demand.

Sad that their churches have been mute about this.

The mormon church "inspired" thousands of its members to donate money, time and work hard to defeat gay marriage legislation.

What I am missing is the hoop-la and press attention of the mormon church inspiring its members to donate money for ads, and work hard to defeat the baby-killing funding by our tax dollars in the health care bill.

Seems like there would be SOME mention of it on FR.

She can call herself a catholic but it doesn’t mean she is one. If you don’t follow Catholic doctrine then one isn’t a Catholic. They’ve excommunicated themselves. It’s that simple. We call them CINO’s!

Yes, we could judge all evangelicals because of one... take your pick. We could judge the Presbyterian Church because of one Presbyterian... take your pick. We could judge all Baptists because of one... take your pick. We could choose positive or negative.

Your authors, who style themselves “American thinkers,” choose negative. The real agenda here is to attack the Mormon Church and the Catholic Church.

You and the pack of religious bigots on forum get your dream come true two-fer, your two hated churches targeted at once, a hate campaign you pathetic beings never tire of. How pitiful.

Please do not call nancy Pelosi a Catholic.

She has excommunicated herself.

She is no Catholic and in her case POS does not mean Person of Status.

Hate to tell you but if passed it will be signed into law by a Protestant who is just as Protestant as Reid and Pelosi are Mormon and Catholic respectively.

What’s sad is if it wasn’t for the abortion divide, the Catholic Church would be ALL FOR this socialist debacle.

It’s not in general our place to judge our fellow Christians, but in this particular case it is overwhelmingly obvious that neither Pelosi nor Reid have any attachment to their claimed faiths. Pelosi considers herself not just above the Pope but also above God Himself (in the unlikely event that she considers God more than just a convenient opiate for the masses). As for Reid, he may be the greatest embarrassment in the history of the LSD church, and I’m surprised they have not formally and publicly expelled him. I thought the Mormons had higher standards.

The African American doctor of 30 years I protested TURN COAT JOHN TANNER, bribed by a NATO job, said he’d retire..0 may get to the point of having to CONSCRIPT the retired doctors, or import Non-English speaking ones or both.

AIN’T JUST GRANNY & GRAMPS GETTING WHACK, MILITARY IS TOO.

KEEP THE CALLS UP! DC OFFICE LOCAL OFFICE

Hold your own street protest in front of your reps local offices. Or busy street corners. Try and get the local media to cover it. Hammer the Medicare/SS issue, nothing like mad grannies and gramps.

This is from a 2007 contact list of congressional aides. Some might not be there any longer, but worth a try. The ones on the one post are senate aides, a few have bounced back, it’s worth the effort to clog up their email system along with the phones, and 1/3rd of these senators are up for re-election.

Mail must be inspected for anthrax takes 2 weeks, so if you snail mail send a post card

CODE RED Contact list http://www.nrcc.org/CodeRed/targets/
Remember they are all being offered BRIBES for their votes. Ask them how much their bribe price is.
The National Republican Congressional Committee has published a target list on health care. In addition to continuing to contact the five Tennessee Democrat Congressmen, you can go http://www.votervoice.net/link/clickthrough/ext/94697.aspx to contact some of these targets. Much of the talk following Obama’s announcement has focused on how to defeat this second bill through reconciliation, but that is misleading because the first step to defeating Obamacare is not by concentrating on defeating the “fixer” bill but by defeating the Senate bill in the House when it goes to the floor for an up-or-down vote on Sunday March 21st.

Good idea from the bloggers at Hillbuzz:
http://hillbuzz.org/2010/03/17/action-items-march-17th-2010/

They offer specifics and links on how to put pressure on Dem DONORS, who have private numbers for legislators who may have taken their phones off the hook.

Congress may not want to hear from us, but they’ll listen to the money men.

Call them and fax them them instead of telling us you don’t trust them.

And here are toll-free numbers we can use to call any Senators or Reps.

At the first number below you must wait through a tape recording urging you to tell your Rep or Senator to vote “yes” for the health care bill. Just hang on and when the recording is over, you will get the Capitol operator. Just ask for your Rep or Senator’s office. Then you will either talk to an aid or have the chance to leave a message for him/her to vote NO on the health care bill.

When you use the second number and the Capitol operator comes on, just ask for your Rep or Senator’s office. Every time I use this number I get the Rep or Senator’s answer machine, so it may be set up that way all the time...to go to their answer machine. Either way you can leave a message to vote NO on the health care bill!

We need to use these toll free numbers that have been set up for the health care/ BO supporters and illegals to use! After all they are FREE!
