If Pelosi’s a “Practicing Catholic” Why Can’t She Follow Church Abortion Teaching?
life news ^ | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 06/14/2013 11:58:33 AM PDT by Morgana

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi made more eye-rolling comments yesterday when she called defending legal abortions to the point of opposing a late-term abortion ban “sacred ground.”

“As a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this,” Pelosi said about efforts to stop late-term abortions. “This shouldn’t have anything to do with politics.”

The head of a pro-life women’s group has a good question for Pelosi: If she is truly a “practicing Catholic” why can’t she support the Catholic Church’s pro-life teachings against abortions?

“As a mother and practicing Catholic, I have a modest proposal for Mrs. Pelosi: that she consider the Church’s teaching which says each life is sacred and reject the idea that each abortion is,” says Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of the Susan B. Anthony List.

“As a practicing Catholic, Nancy Pelosi knows full well there’s no moral difference between the atrocities of Kermit Gosnell and abortions in the womb,” Dannenfelser continued. “She also knows that politics has everything to do with it: The bill she is trying to shut down – the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act — would protect these babies and women from the pain of late-term abortion.”

“Pelosi’s refusal to answer shows how scared she and the pro-abortion lobby are of the bill, which is exactly why they are trying to shut it down. They’ve seen the same polling we have: The majority of Americans reject late-term abortion,” Danenfelser added. “The bill is scheduled to hit the House floor next week – but it won’t if Pelosi and the pro-abortion lobby have their way. In fact, NARAL just sent out a national action alert urging their members to call their Representative and demand that the bill is not brought to the floor of the House.”

During the press conference, in response to a reporter’s question, Pelosi was upset to be asked about the gruesome abortions and intanticides done by Kermit Gosnell and indicated she opposes a bill a committee approved yesterday to ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Pelosi falsely called the bill a ban on all abortions.

“They would make it a federal law that there would be no abortion in our country,” Pelosi said.

Below is the video of Pelosi’s remarks:

Certainly the American Church, and now the new Pope, has made it clear to Pelosi and her ilk that ignoring Church teaching on abortion just isn’t such a big deal.

Pelosi’s a Catholic like Hitler was a Jew. Any doctor who preforms an abortion is in direct violation of the Hippocratic Oath.

Somebody as braindead and virtually stupid as she is, is not going to suddenly say, “Ya’ know . . . You’re right! It is murder.”

What it will take to embarrass this sick beeyyaaaach is to have the Catholic Church do its job: Refuse publicly to give her Communion in any Catholic Church and then publicly humiliate the jackass by excommunicating her immediately and loudly.

Until then, it’s totally fruitless to confront the jackass.

Pelosi IS a fetalcidal, bloodthirsty, child abusing psychopath.
Why she hasn’t been excommunocated from your Catholic churches, by those in power, is an act of complicity BY the Catholic power structure.
If Catholics had any gonads or backbones, Catholics would bar her from even entering any Catholic churches, on the grounds her presence is desecration of Holy ground.
What say YOU Catholics?

Ah, that’s because she’s a hypocrite, a Catholic in name only (CINO), and a practicing heretic. She should be excommunicated.

My understanding is that the official position is that she and those with her beliefs have “self-excommunicated”, so no official Church action or statement is necessary.

I have no idea. After Teddy Kennedy's royal funeral I doubt it happens any longer. I think liberalism has spread so far and wide it is here to stay until the host (US) is devoured, and God puts a stop to this insanity. If you are of a mind read Joel 1 and 2, pretty much sums up the signs of the times.

"More to the point—why hasn’t she been excommunicated?"

That's a good question. Why, exactly, the Catholic Church doesn't flat-out excommunicate politicians who pass laws that conflict with Catholic and Christian mainstream doctrine to such an extent that it would have gotten them burned at the stake in an earlier era remains a mystery to this ex-Catholic.

Yet her ilk along with abortionists Biden, Cuomo and the majority of RATS in the house and senate march up each week to receive communion. Its time the Catholic Church cracked down on the hypocrites.........but they are too “mamby pamby” to do so.

“Why is she allowed communion?”

She condemns herself each time. The theory is that it is God’s job to take care of this.

Me, I think the theory is wrong and more forceful action must be taken.

If I had the authority, San Fran Nan would be thrown out of the Church so fast that her head would spin. Unfortunately, I don't have the authority to do that. If she was excommunicated, she'd probably spin it as a badge of honor; saying see was fighting for women's reproductive rights against the oppressive dogma of the Catholic Church. Sadly, a lot of her base in the San Francisco area agrees with Pelosi’s position on abortion.

Because she's a sinner in need of a Savior.

Desperate need, and doesn't seem to know it.

The more help Nanny the RED helps the women the more miserable they become. Why so many are beginning to act like the transgendered crowd. See based upon my observations Nancy loves Nancy and all that she can acquire through this flesh journey. Were she to really believe she would know the only thing she will return to the Maker with is her good works. He is the only one that really counts on the record keeping.

Because I suppose she is like most Catholics, in need of a supernatural heart transplant. She needs to be “born-again”, “born from above,” to truly become and “new creature in Christ.”

Every soul born of woman has been born from above. That process begins at conception. Now I cannot judge the condition of Nancy's soul. What I can discern is her motivations/actions are not from the Heavenly Father. And apparently the vicar of Christ is powerless to keep her from tainting his flock.

Pelosi certainly needs to be born from above, to repent and convert. That said, I suppose she is like most Protestants, thinking that she and she alone is the infallible interpreter of Scripture and inerrant arbiter of Truth.

Have never posted, but always read FP. I just thought about something. Most abortions, to my knowledge, are done to african-americans, so in that sense democrats are the genocidal racists and conservatives are the liberators. I didn’t mention the r party on purpose, because I have had it with there lies. The r’s are democrats now :(

When Jesus said to the scholarly Nicodemus, “you must be born-again, it’s very clear he was not speaking of physical birth, but spiritual birth. Man is conceived “in iniquity” according to the word of God, born in sin; spiritually “dead in trespasses and sin,” hence he is born into this world spiritually dead. A new birth, a spiritual birth is essential to understanding the things of God, which the word of God says, “the natural man does not understand,” because they are “spiritually discerned.” Only those who have placed a genuine faith in the Christ of Scripture have been “born again.”

She is in a position to influence others. That makes her a serious adverasery to the truth. what she is doing is leading the lesser individuals into sin. That makes her one of those that Christ spoke of when he said that it would be better if a millstone were tied around her neck and she be tossed into the sea. It’s that simple. If she continues, she’s gone!
