Pelosi: Pope Francis ‘Starting to Sound Like a Nun’

Pelosi: Pope Francis ‘Starting to Sound Like a Nun’ September 23, 2013 - 1:20 PM By Michael W. Chapman

(CNSNews.com) – Pope Francis is “starting to sound like a nun,” said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), a Catholic, when asked about some of the Pope’s recent remarks concerning issues such as abortion and homosexuality.

In a Sept. 22 interview on CNN’s Situation Room, host Candy Crolwey asked Pelosi, “Before we go, Pope Francis is calling for a new balance between the chruch’s spiritual and political missions. He says the Catholic Church should not interfere spiritually in the lives of gays. He also called for a larger decision-making role for Catholic women. We ask Nancy Pelosi , one of the nation’s most prominent Catholics, for her reaction.”

Pelosi said, “Starting to sound like a nun. The Pope is starting to sound like the nuns.”

“Now, his Holiness is obviously a very revered figure,” said Pelosi. “I was there for his inauguration. And I being Catholic believed that he was chosen Pope by the intercession of the Holy Spirit, so I pay attention to what he says. And I can tell you that there is great joy among Catholics and friends of Catholics as to respect that his Holiness pays to all of God’s creation and members of the church and then beyond that. It’s really quite remarkable. It’s a source of joy to us all.”

When Crowley mentioned that the Pope’s remarks might not be “a source of joy to all Catholics because I’ve seen conservative Catholics express some reservations about it,” Pelosi said, “I don’t know about them because certainly when it was another Pope who had something else to say, they wanted to hold us all to it.”

Pelosi is probably referring to the lesbian commie American nuns. Not a complement in my book.

“starting to sound like the nuns.”

As in saying things that have some vague rleationship to actual church doctrine rather than saying abortion is treasured Catholic value, like she does.

I’m sorry, I can’t have any respect for the Catholic church until she is excommunicated.

He was chosen Pope by the intercession of the Holy Spirit ... I pay attention to what he says ... it’s a source of joy to us all.

... and like all good libtards everywhere ... especially my buddies the Clintons, Reid and Obozo ... I am amazingly adept at lying!

In terms of homosexual ‘marriage’ ... "Let's not be naive, we're not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God," wrote Cardinal Bergoglio in a letter sent to the monasteries of Buenos Aires. "We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God."

Pope condemns abortion as product of ‘throwaway culture’

Don't look now sanfrannan, but you're next in line to be condemned by this Pope whom you think sounds like a nun ......

What an idiot she is. Today Cdl Burke said that she should be excommunicated. He’s the top legal person at the Vatican and is actually in charge of these things, and he wouldn’t say this without the Pope’s authorization.

If she thinks the Pope agrees with her or “the nuns” on anything, she’s sadly mistaken. The faux “nuns” she is talking about are still under investigation and, furthermore, one of them issued an outraged statement about Francis just today.

Dumb as a box of rocks.

Any Catholic who doesn’t understand the fullness of truth; education, experience, theological and philosophically based biblical teaching any pope has gone through and given is too out if it to call themselves catholic, but a major public figure.

Really when are we going to have a true discussion on voting privileges? She was once two people away from the presidency. Make it stop

I’ve said it before and it’s still true - Nancy Pelosi perfectly represents her San Francisco constituents. What she says and does is exactly what they think and want.

For that matter, she represents the whole SF Bay Area.

I have never understood why Pelosi is putting up this charade that she is Catholic. That certainly does not endear her to her constituents. My guess is so she can actively sow discord within the church.

Shame on you, Nancy! The pope has done nothing but back everything you say because you are still a Catholic, right? Just exactly what does it take to get excommunicated in that church? Money speaks!

If the Catholic was still a religious organization Pelosi and others would have been excommunicated long ago.

Progressives love to use membership in respectable-sounding organizations to cloak their true intentions. The Catholic Church. The US Army. The Republican Party. All are filled with agent-provocateurs who use the organizations to give their subversive activities a cloak of respectability.

She’s referring, of course, to radical Lesbian nuns who hate God, Jesus Christ and all things decent and righteous.

Cardinal Burke has never said she should be excommunicated. He has said that she must be denied Communion.

Her constituents know what KIND of “Catholic” she is—the pro-sodomy, baby-killing kind that doesn’t offend them.

Because people like Cardinal Wuerl and Archbishop Cordileone—and the PRIESTS of their dioceses—refuse to obey Canon 915.

The ultimate responsibility to deny Communion to Pelosi rests with the PASTORS of the parishes where she receives Communion:

Cardinal Wuerl has made crystal clear to his priests that they will be punished if they OBEY the Church’s LAW.
