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 its 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.
"Its 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."
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.
"Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that 'homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered,'" says the Catechism. "They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.
"The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible," says the Catechism. "This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.
"Homosexual persons are called to chastity," says the Catechism. "Sexuality is ordered to the conjugal love of man and woman."
Who really knows what this " twisted ditz" truly believes. The only people who listen to her are her degenerate constituents, and folks like me who can't resist taking a look at the "train wreck. This latest bit of nonsensical twitter is particularly absurd. Stick to preaching to your choir Nancy, you're making me choke.
Homosexuals unite! Nutsy is making your corrupt situation even worse. She represents the nude and lewd of San Francisco, what else would one expect?
Psst, Nancy—It’s the Golden Rule, not the Golden Rod.
Oh Nancy, trying telling what you said to the Pope, I DO NOT HE WOULD LIKE THAT!
Pelosi’s not Catholic. She says she is, but she isn’t.
Really she NEEDS to be excommunicated.
And my desire to get in shape compels me to eat double stuff Oreos.
Pelosi is clueless. About everything— reality, her religion, politics— everything!
Apparently her Catholic faith compels her to support same-sex marriage, abortion, and illegal immigrants. Oh, share the wealth.
Nancy! Think you should read this.
Lev 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination.
Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood [shall be] upon them.
In fact, here is a link to it. Running time about 1 min.
The years of liberalization of the Catholic and other Christian denominations have all been for this purpose. There are now so many lib ‘Christians’ in positions of power throughout the faith that they are staging an open hijack of what it means to be Christian.
The Pope and other true Christian leaders better get this smacked down hard....now.
“We have to pass the bill so we can see what’s in it.”
An absolutely astounding comment made by a brain-dead, plastic surgery adict.
Absolutely correct! She is preaching, and promoting, anti-Christian garbage to a very wide public audience. The bishop has a clear responsibility to take action.
As long as the shape you desire to be in is like the Stay Puft marshmellow man, there's not a problem.
The problem today is what has transpired since the horrendously disasterous Vatican II whereby an entirely new religion was created.
If it feels good, do it! Vatican II replaced the Roman Catholic Church with the lurking modernists’ view of what satan really wants: Novus Ordo!
Prior to the catastrophic Vatican II, the Roman Catholic Church was a lighthouse, a bellweather to the entire Christian faith. Today it is a cafeteria that has driven Jesus Christ and His Father out of what passes for Catholic Churches today.
Nutsy Pelousy is a product of the Novus Ordo AND The New World Order!
So just which parts of the catholic church catechism do you believe in, woman?
Speaking as someone who was born, baptised, confirmed and raised a Catholic; I don’t ever remember being taught that my catholic faith compelled me to support anything that is specifically condemned in the bible.
Please send this woman to the or mental institution.
