Original Title:Pelosi Assists in Holy Week Foot-Washing Ritual
To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco.
Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship."
The Democratic leader's ceremony coincides with Pope Francis' similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week. As he did last year, the pope broke with the tradition of washing only priests' feet during the Mass for the Last Supper - this time, washing the feet of disabled people.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, left, prepares to pour water on the feet of Yamile Cruz, 10, left, with the help of Bishop Marc Andrus, right, April 17, 2014 during a public foot-washing ritual honoring immigrants in the Mission at St. John Evangelist Episcopalian Church in San Francisco, Calif. Elected San Francisco officials including House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi joined together to take part in the ritual of foot-washing featuring immigrants and people in the community.
She should be honoring the dignity and work of the average American. How amnesty is going to save $1 Trillion seems a secret not to be shared with the public.
She so full of herself.
Self - starving or self - deportation?
Either way, continued strong US Citizen hostility toward Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico is working, to use an Obama phrase.
Our US jobless rate would go to zero when the last Illegal Alien Invader from Mexico AND their children return to Mexico.
The only Border Reform that needs to be done is to force Federal Politicians in both political parties to strictly enforce EXISTING Federal Border Laws.
Her husband depends on cheap labor for his vineyards and hotels/
Hello USA. if you want to save a trillion dollars...
Get RID of Nanzi Pelousey!!!!
How can it reduce it when wages they make will allow them to get away without paying taxes, as well as cause millions of people to become dependents of the state?
Stupidity on the hoof.
If Nanz had truely humbled herself before God,
there would have been NO photographers present...
Just another photo op of the ruling class.
She’s a cultural rapist who’s goal in life seems to be to set new records for shamelessness.
While Pelosi is a fruitloop [ and I note wasn’t able to do this in a Catholic church but had to find an Episcopal one ...... ]
Allowing taxation of a current class of invisible workers, via medicare and medicaid tax, would increase revenue. The issues facing social security are a lack of children to support the aging workers. The way to fix that is with imported workers that we then tax.
Also as they are allowed to advance in job status they may start paying income tax too.
The problem now is they are unable to work anywhere that pays any decent amount of $$. This in turn keeps them in poverty that we are worried about.

... she had to.....she got caught payin the kids 2 bucks an hour at the vineyard, stompin the purple ones.
Although I must say there is probably a good
political cartoon in this, some homeless guy on the
street being hassled by his friends for his clean feet
and he’s saying, “But they were washed by Nanzi Pelousy!!!”
A barefoot squeegee man with a sign...
“Have your windshield cleaned by the feet washed by
Nanzi Pelousey! $5 “.
For pelosi to prove humility, she’d have to wash feet not part of a photo OP or a progressive dream bill. How about washing Rush Limbaugh’s feet?
... revenue that would promptly be spent on welfare benefits for the worker's families.
Any way you slice it amnesty will cost us trillions.
I suggest their families are already on welfare to a large extent. I believe, right or wrong, that they would earn more $$ if they were legal and hence would reduce welfare need.
The conservative notion that economy isn’t a static number of jobs and that people will ultimately better themselves.
Actually, I think she is full of something else. Something that tends to have a certain foul stench to it.
More illegals - more immigrants - means increasing socialism everywhere they collect.
So long individual sovereignty. Goodbye American experiment.
The difference is CA is still illegals.
If you follow CA politics you would know there’s no such thing.
Holding the water, Pelosi said: “Are there any babies for me to baptize?? Oops...forgot...we murdered them.”
so why didn’t she do it when she was Speaker , because they save things like this for Elections
Nancy says lots of things.
I’m just trying to look on the bright side.
What she meant to say is pass the immigration bill to find out what’s in it.
I wonder what the hell she's been smoking. Or maybe all that Botox has gone to her brain. She's now a Mega-Ditz.
It would never happen but it would have been great if the Bishop (in front of everyone) would have made Pelosi openly declare that she is no longer in favor of abortion. And then when she refused to do that the Bishop would make her leave the church in utter shame walking down the aisle to her waiting limo.
Notice that she didn’t do it at a Catholic church.
It’s true — a full trillion dollars will come out of the deficit because these new Americans will demand the end to government overspending, starting with the repeal of Obamacare.
Yeah, it wasn’t that funny.
She is full out insane
Humility? Do so without a photo-op is a sign of humility not what she is doing by having her picture taken which is a phony as her.
Once you realize Pelosi is criminally insane, everything makes sense.
Hey Nanzi, I’ll let you wash my feet if you’ll get hairy reed to kiss my arse.
Sill waiting on those 500 million jobs a month.
Does the holy water wash off the blood of the unborn babies that she considers her sacred duty to abort?
She is among the most disgusting human beings alive.
This woman is dangerous, she is lying and miss-leading the public.
Take away the cameras and Nancy is gone!
I was the recipient of a ‘foot washing’ many years ago...This woman really cheapens the experience...The parents of those kids have to be some really biblically ignorant suckers to allow this to happen to their kids...
Pelosi is delusional...early stage of Alzheimers?
This woman is a case iron idiot!
While Pelosi is a fruitloop [ and I note wasnt able to do this in a Catholic church but had to find an Episcopal one ...... ]
.....Allowing taxation of a current class of invisible workers, via medicare and medicaid tax, would increase revenue.....
Wrong many are taxed what would increase is the amount paid to cover these third world illegal immigrants with lots of health problems on the horizon.
...The issues facing social security are a lack of children to support the aging workers. The way to fix that is with imported workers that we then tax....
Baloney what is wrong wit Social Security and SSI etc is its a Ponzi scheme and more workers only delay its collapse. Many illegals are paying SS on fraudulent ss numbers.
...Also as they are allowed to advance in job status they may start paying income tax too....
Also not likely with all their dependents, based on their skills and aptitude most will have low paying jobs for life. Also the new flood of freshly created “legal” workers will lower wages for American Citizens and current legal workers causing drop in tax revenue. Supply and demand.
...The problem now is they are unable to work anywhere that pays any decent amount of $$. This in turn keeps them in poverty that we are worried about...
try reading some studies about people in low income jobs, and what they need to do to advance. hint you can’t change genetics. Also many were raised in a culture of corruption and are not going to change themselves but US.
Wow. I’ve been wrong about her for all these years.
Her sincerity has humbled me.
But at the same time, Americans will lose 500,000,000 jobs a month. Just quoting Pelosi’s math.
When does she get nailed to the Cross?
Damn, that must be why I’m broke. It’s not the Obama Recession and the Obama Tax Hikes after all.
H.R.15 — Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act
I am beyond ... this is abhorrent!
So, this Bishop Marc Andrus is encouraging someone who is ex-communicated to perform a religious ritual on faithful supplicants?
It sounds like the bishop is “in variance” with church doctrines. The trouble is that it is unlikely that he is in variance in just this way. Such behavior indicated that he is on the border of heterodoxy, if not outright heresy.
I hope the majority of those who see the article notice that as well. Unfortunately, they probably won't. Most people see a photo like that and "Catholic" lodges in their subconscious, which is probably exactly what the photographer had in mind.
I've decided Pelosi and a good many other public figures who claim to be Catholic (or who claim to be part of any other Christian church for that matter) aren't even a "Cafeteria Catholic", they're "Flag of Convenience" Catholics.
Just like ships use a flag of convenience to maximize the benefits of owning a ship, Nancy, and a great many other public figures like her are flying the Catholic flag of convenience to maximize the benefits of ownership for their owner, Satan.
By now, claiming to be Catholic probably isn't much help in attracting and keeping voters on her side. It adds tremendously to the benefits her owner receives from ownership, though, by being a powerful publicly mockery of both Christianity in general and the Catholic Church in particular.
My bet is a lot of "flag of convenience Christians" are in fact devout Satanist of one flavor or another and looking forward to eternity based on the promises demons have made to them.
And yes, there are Satanists (no matter whether they realize they're Satanists or not) deluded enough by "light bearers" and "enlightened beings" to sincerely believe they'll be eternally rewarded for slandering and mocking Christianity.
