Anyone who dares to defend that they may be legitimately killed because another human being chooses to do so or for any other equally ridiculous reason should not be providing leadership in a civilized democracy worthy of the name.I am pleasantly surprised by Card. Egan's direct and impassioned response. Now, if only Abp. Niederauer would grow a pair ...
My PEEPS!!! Way to GO!!!
She LIED about what the Church BELIEVE!!! And is now getting NAILED for her LIE!
WOW...... that was GOOD and INSIGHTFUL!!!! Made me think. THANKS!!
Does Egan read FR? The sort of language he's used is very reminiscent of that used by some exasperated posters around here when referring to Pelosi.
It's almost like he cut and pasted a post from the FR Religion forum.
Thank you Cardinal Egan for this clearly worded rebuke of the garbage spouted by Speaker Pelosi.
The best way to change her status as Speaker of the House is to make sure that she doesn’t have a majority on her side in November. The loons in San Fran will keep electing her because she is following their far far left politics. That stuff doesn’t play in the rest of the country.
Check and mate.
“Nancy, you might want to put some ice on that...”
No ice for her! (Soup Nazi mode off)
Sorry if I’m underwhelmed.
If the statement holds water then when she gets back to Washington DC and attends mass, she will publicly be denied the Holy Eucharist.
Until then, these are only words.
"In simplest terms, they are human beings with an inalienable right to live, a right that the Speaker of the House of Representatives is bound to defend at all costs for the most basic of ethical reasons. They are not parts of their mothers, and what they are depends not at all upon the opinions of theologians of any faith. Anyone who dares to defend that they may be legitimately killed because another human being chooses to do so or for any other equally ridiculous reason should not be providing leadership in a civilized democracy worthy of the name."
It seems as though the CINO politicians miscalculated the extent to which the hierarchy would allow themselves to be complicit in the charade.
Pelosi did not realize she was opening up Pandora’s box, but she was and the immediacy and forcefulness of the bishops’ responses are stunning.
A new page has been turned. The myth that CINO pro-aborts are actually Catholic is being shattered.
She set her self up as a spokesperson for the Catholic Church on a national news show. She had to know what was coming.
Rush Limbaugh said this yesterday:
“Pope Benedict is going to hear about this if he hasn’t. He cares. He’s the pope. He cares about the Catholic Church. The most powerful woman in the United States of America has just lied about his church. Something has to happen here at some point. I don’t know what. I don’t know what steps publicly the Catholic Church takes in a situation like this. But the first thing that is going to happen is, American Catholics are going to hear about it on this program...”
I hope you’re right, all the way to the point of the host finally being drawn back from them when they present their bloody hands for communion.
BUT Wuerl can deny her in Washington DC stating that she caused scandal to the church and therefore excommunicated herself.
That’s what I’m looking for.
