Skip to comments.Pelosi: Her Catholic Faith 'Compels' Her to Support Same-Sex Marriage
Posted on 05/11/2012 4:24:30 PM PDT by IbJensen
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.
Next from Pelosi...Jesus was just a swell teacher.
Exactly: She is a raving lunatic.
Worse: she is in charge of a party of raving lunatics.
She is f’in crazy.
Our country is being run by lunatics.God help us.
Ya know it’s bad enough that Pelosi has no idea what it means to be Catholic, but to make statements about the Catholic faith that are vile and untrue is just too much.
I know Bishops are uneasy in attacking people who they may have to go to for political favors,but at some point in time one of them MUST speak out against this crazed woman.
If she really believes she must support Mortal sin, she is a demon, or demon possessed.
It sure is.
.................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...................
Nancy, sit aside your priests’ confessional and tell the priest that he should take her message to the Pope.
His response will be STFU-NP!
I’m sure Archbishop Niederauer is pleased that his sit down with her after she opened her mouth about the Church supporting abortion really took hold. That was a real important lesson she learned, I reckon.
I really doubt she can set foot safely in a church anymore.
And, my Catholic Faith 'compels' me to call Pelosi a heretic.
My Catholic faith compels me to go to confession and ask forgiveness for what I’m thinking about Nancy Peloci.
After the death of Pope Pius XIII (?) the consistory was hijacked by a group of French Cardinals. An Italian Cardinal by the name of Siri was duly elected but several minutes after those in revolt went to him and advised that though elected he could not serve. The problem was that Siri was very anti Communist and was told by the usurpers that thye Soviet Union declared that if Siri were to assume the Papacy they would kidnap and kill all Cardinals and Bishops in their jurisdiction. Believing this wild claim, Siri relinquished the Papacy. Pope John XXIII was then elected and went on to ruin the Catholic Church. Look it up.
“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 is one sick, twisted freak.
I really want to know.
Go To Hell Nancy
She’s compelled alright. The spirit that possesses and compels her is known by exorcists in the Catholic church.
Nancy’s Catholic faith? My teachers warned us about this when I was a young child. They said watch for those who would profess to be of the catholic faith who would be of heretical origin. Nancy Pelosi is a prime example. Nobody is a better repesentative of that than Nancy Pelosi. By fifty years of lead in, they were right. She is somebody of position who is trying to lead people astray. This is great! What I was told of 50 years ago is coming true.
“Her Catholic Faith compels her...” because while she is nominally inside the Catholic Church she is at war with Christian precepts all up and down the line. In order to topple the Establishment i.e. the Church she must oppose anything the Church supports. It isn’t her “Faith.” It is, rather, her opposition to Christian Faith and her subservience to her Atheistic god, the government.
If this isn’t a time for formal excommunication of her and Biden, I don’t know when. It’s time to write the local Bishop and the Vatican.
I wonder if the Catholic Group on FR can start a petition?
Please, all you Latins, petition Pelosi’s ordinary to publicly excommunicate her. If that fails, petition Pope Benedict.
Every time someone puts “Pelosi” and “Catholic” in the same sentence, I get very upset. That this person continues to denigrate the faith, deny the authority of that faith and pretend to speak for all Catholics is pure evil. I will continue to pray for her, but I don’t have to tolerate her; and the Church doesn’t say anyone must tolerate evil.
My sister, sho works for the Catholic Church, has a hard time believing there are gay priests. The Church teaches after all that sex is for marriage only and then for the making of children. If you can’t make children by having sex then Catholics should have nothing to do with it. I wonder what Nancy would have to say about that?
The fact that she, and others like her, havent been excommunicated is to the Catholics shame and failing. Decent, loving Catholics should protest to the point of being taken seriously and changing the attitudes of acceptance and of ignoring such grave, heinous and public sins.
Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
This manaical piece of plastic surgery art is proof positive that firstly she doesn’t indeed know her ass from a hole in the ground and secondly that she was one of many key players who brought this nation to its knees.
She hasn’t a God to pray to for forgiveness because she is a non-believer and satan, who has been her master for a long time only remembers that she has been a willing soldier in his army.
To put it quite simply, the Catholic Church hasn’t been doing the job assigned to it by our Saviour, Jesus Christ. He left a perfectly good church behind to await His Second Comming and things limped along as things will until after the death of Pope Pius XII. Then, pardon the lingo, all HELL broke loose. Vatican II emasculated prelate and church and the various dioceses throughout the world thought, quite rightly, that they had a new plaything: voila. A new religion was born, but without babe in a manger and, God forbid, a suffering Christ on a crucifix. It’s bongos and guitars now to provide jarringly irritating music background as the Novus Ordo clergy takes a meat axe to what passed for tenets and liturgy.
If anyone thinks that the floodgates were opened by accident to allow the homosexuals into the seminaries and then into neighborhood parishes they are absolutely wrong headed.
This was a plot hatched by our friends in the Kremlin to bring down one of their perceived two greatest enemies: the Roman Catholic Church ahd the United States. They knew the Church would be on its knees over this scandal. (See: homosexuals do have a use)
Vatican II which formed a new Novus Ordo, anything goes touchy feely kind of thing, made the insertion of many sodomites easier to accomplish. Father limp wrist wouldn’t stand out as much and the kiddies would love him.
Let’s hope the last of that has been eradicated and we can now concentrate on taking the church back from satan. I doubt if the present pope will allow it as he appears dedicated to the Novus Ordo and has been toiling hard to bring it about.
