MSNBC’s Jansing Shocked That Pope Francis Opposes Abortion
NewsBusters.org ^ | January 22, 2014 | Jeffrey Meyer

Posted on 01/22/2014 4:35:02 PM PST by Kaslin

Today marks the 41st annual “March for Life” in which thousands of pro-lifers ascend on Washington D.C. to mark the Roe v. Wade decision and show their solidarity in opposition to abortion, many of them faithful Catholics. Not surprisingly, Pope Francis sent out an official tweet showing his support for the “March for Life” in which he said, “I join the March for Life in Washington with my prayers, may God help us respect all life, especially the most vulnerable.”

Unfortunately for one MSNBC host, the fact the Pope would show support for one of the Catholic Church’s most sacred values, the protection of all innocent human life, seemed to be too much to handle. During her daily “Tweet of the Day” segment on Jansing & Co., Chris Jansing sniffed that Pope Francis’s pro-life values were “reflective of ways in which the church certainly has not changed.”

Earth to Chris Jansing: The Catholic Church is and always will be pro-life. No amount of pushing from the liberals at MSNBC will change that. Furthermore, the fact that Jansing would claim that the Pope being pro-life is indicative of how the Catholic Church “has not changed” is insulting to hundreds of millions of pro-life Catholics, other pro-life Christians, and other pro-lifers of other faiths or of no faith who draw inspiration from the pro-life witness of the papacy.

Such sentiments should be of no surprise to most individuals, as MSNBC consistently sympathizes with the abortion community. In fact, at the time of this posting, MSNBC today has failed to bring on its air a single pro-life individual to talk about the “March for Life.” Instead, the “Lean Forward” network brought on NARAL President Ilyse Hogue and NOW’s Terry O’Neill to slam pro-life activists marching in the “March for Life.”

Wow! They really are so locked into their moral inversion that they can’t accept anything else. What perverted self deluded swine.

Many Catholics must feel disenfranchised by their fellow Catholic, Cuomo.

GOD will never change... HE is the ALPHA AND OMEGA. HE is perfection and what will change is the eternity that this chris will endure if she does not repent.

Revelation 22:13

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

I truly think that we will live to see prophesy fulfilled in our time. I do not KNOW anything... it just seems to me that it is unavoidable.

That IS a blast from the past.

Jethro Tull.

And, interpreted correctly, or not. It does describe, for me, the mindless, vacant, vacuous modern liberal/statist/socialist.

Your wise men don't know how it feels....to be thick as a brick.

Once, I thought their comments were carefully parsed to inflict damage, much like well thrown spears.

Now, however, I know that MSNBC is infested with the dumbest of the dumb. Dopes so completely stupid any comparison to a slack-jawed yokel would be a compliment.

I’ve met some idiots, but the MSNBC boobs are beyond my ken.

If only the Pope would say people like Cuomo and Pelosi and Biden are not welcome in the Catholic Church.

If the Church would start publicly excommunicating pro-choice abortion politicians, these dim-witted journalists might finally get it.

I always ask women who are pro-abortion, “If the fetus is female, would killing her be a part of the war on women or just sexist?”

I guess the March meeting with dumBO is off since they no longer have only hatred of Capitalism in common.

Now you can understand why Chris Jansing became a MSNBC host instead of any other profession that required a functioning brain (excepting Vice President of the US of course).

Secretary of State Kerry said the execution: “could impact the way American citizens are treated in other countries.”

I’ll settle for the impact being an improvement in the way Mexican citizens treat American citizens in this country.
