Is Nancy Pelosi a Satanist?

Is Nancy Pelosi a Satanist?

There have been plenty of religions in history that'd agree with her that the murder of innocents is sacred - but the Catholic Church is not one of them

Jun 27, 2013

John Zmirak

A secular radio host called my cell phone while I was busy at a conference, asking me to explain to his non-Catholic listeners whether the Church really considered abortion “sacred.” I was, for a rare moment, speechless. He pointed me to the news piece reporting Nancy Pelosi’s statement to a Weekly Standard reporter John McCormack, summarized as follows by The Blaze on June 13:

McCormack asked the California Congresswoman how she reconciles her professed disgust for Gosnell with her condemnation of a bill that would prohibit abortionists from terminating the life of a child moments before birth.

The former House Speaker was not at all pleased with his line of questioning.

“You’re probably enjoying that question a lot, I can see you savoring it,” Pelosi said in response. “What was done in Philadelphia was reprehensible and everybody condemned it. For [the drafters of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act] to decide to disrespect a judgment a woman makes about her reproductive health is reprehensible.”

“Next question,” she added.

McCormack wasn’t finished: “So what’s the moral difference? I just asked a simple question. … What’s the moral difference then between 26 weeks elective abortion and killing of that same infant born alive?”

“This is not the issue. They are saying that there’s no abortion. It would make it a federal law that there would be no abortion in our country,” she responded.

As mentioned in the above, the bill doesn’t ban “all abortions.”

“As a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this,” she added. “This shouldn’t have anything to do with politics.”

Prominent Catholics, such as Priests for Life president Fr. Frank Pavone, have responded forthrightly to what Pelosi said:

With this statement, you make a mockery of the Catholic faith and of the tens of millions of Americans who consider themselves "practicing and respectful Catholics" and who find the killing of children -- whether inside or outside the womb -- reprehensible.



Whatever Catholic faith you claim to respect and practice, it is not the faith that the Catholic Church teaches. And I speak for countless Catholics when I say that it's time for you to stop speaking as if it were.

But I didn’t even have time to read Fr. Pavone’s sound and principled statement. I had to go on the air in 5 minutes to respond to this gruesome scandal, so I was forced to wing it. I answered, in essence, as follows:

If Nancy Pelosi says that partial-birth abortion is something “sacred” in her religion, I think it’s only right that we take her at her word. There have been a number of religions throughout history that relied on human sacrifice, some of them associated with quite advanced civilizations. (Think of Aztec Mexico.) A few of these civilizations have even practiced infant sacrifice, such as Carthage. Indeed, G.K. Chesterton in The Everlasting Man saw the Punic Wars as goaded by a healthy Roman disgust for their enemies’ annual slaughter of every first-born infant, offered to their gods in return for guaranteed wealth and success. Which those gods duly provided. More modern religions that practice or advocate such sacrifices include some wings of Satanism. I’m not sure which of these religions Nancy Pelosi practices. The one thing we do know is that she isn’t a Catholic. There is nothing Christian or Judaeo-Christian about a practice that the Jewish prophets denounced—preparing the way for Jews and Christians to rescue unwanted, abandoned infants from the walls of Rome itself.

To be fair, Nancy Pelosi probably does not belong to a cult that sacrifices children to a god or gods in the hope of gaining prosperity or conquering Rome. But there is a strange religious impulse at the heart of the pro-choice ideology she represents so ably in the Congress in defiance of Catholic teaching. And she does seem to have shoehorned what tenets of Catholicism she still accepts into this new religion she practices—rendering whatever creed Pelosi holds a kind of syncretistic mish-mash like Santeria. Her creed maintains that individual choice is absolutely sacred in certain matters and not in others. She isn’t a libertarian who wants to legalize drugs and prostitution, to peel back minimum wage laws or bans on racial discrimination—all of which would follow from a consistent belief in absolute private autonomy.  No, as a modern progressive she believes that the common good can trump a person’s decision, to work for $1.00 per hour, snort cocaine, or refuse to hire minorities.

But there is one area that Pelosi regards as completely sacred, and that is sexual acts. Here we see a superficial resemblance between her beliefs and what Catholics hold: we also see sex as sacred. But the Catholic view is that its sacredness rests in the entire action in context: an action that unites two married people while remaining open to the creation of a new immortal soul. Pelosi, instead, finds sacredness in just one narrow segment of the act: at the moment one whispers, “Yes!”

Now Catholics can agree with her up to a point: No one wants the state to regulate which adults can consent to sex. Thomas Aquinas taught that not even every action which breaks the natural law is prudent for us to punish. There is a very large realm of autonomy that the government prudently leaves us, to avoid imposing a tyranny that might damage the real goods of personal liberty and family life.

Where Pelosi’s religion is different is that she elevates this state-free gray zone into a mystical good in itself, and extends the aura of sacredness for nine long months. The holy autonomy of a woman’s sexual choices is so transcendent and inviolable that she is exempt from accepting any consequences for her actions. She retains even the right to end the life of a nearly newborn baby complete with a heartbeat and brainwaves. That is a very large sanctuary Pelosi has built to the god of Sex-Choice, and its altar is daily splashed with innocent blood. So maybe Pelosi was right to invoke religious language; there is no rational case she can make for what she believes.

If human life is cheap enough that it can snuffed out at the brink of birth, then no human choice is logically sacred. The woman whose Sex-Choice Pelosi worships was once a silent, pre-born infant fit for destruction, fair game for her mother to terminate at will. At what point did that girl attain some supernatural dignity, which renders her choices too sacrosanct for the state to mess around with, or for a Weekly Standard reporter even to ask about? It wasn’t birth—a newborn is not medically different from the late-term fetuses Pelosi would let men like Kermit Gosnell destroy. Given that Sex-Choice is the only area where Pelosi does not support the government stepping in to corral individual citizens’ activities in support of the common good, I think we have our answer: Personhood begins at puberty, at the moment when we gain the power to say yes or no in bed.

From all this we can conclude the nature of Nancy Pelosi’s religion. Described in anthropological terms, it is a sex cult—but not a fertility religion. Instead it centers on pleasure, happy feelings, and multiplying the sheer quantity of moments when a person feels upbeat and chipper before she dies. Helping the average Jane feel as many such moments as possible before she keels over (or is euthanized) is the purpose of the government, and the job of civil servants is to help benighted citizens who have trouble doing the math to really, really maximize the number of happy moments.  Thus does Rep. Pelosi interpret the Founders’ phrase, “the pursuit of happiness.” The average person need not be given too much freedom in most matters—economic, medical, or even political. The only area from which (for religious reasons) the government must step back is in women’s Sex-Choice—which is for some mystical reason, sacrosanct.

I would like to thank Rep. Pelosi for sharing with us her religious beliefs. I leave it to her local bishop to decide whether they qualify her for receiving Holy Communion.

That is kind of interesting. She’s young enough to have gad an interest in groups that started out as satanist worshipping murder and “evil”, and who later became prominent on the left.

Oh, really?

Just what, exactly, do you think the Democrat Party is?

It is “a cult that sacrifices children to a god or gods in the hope of gaining prosperity”...and POWER!

Nancy Pelosi is worth millions and has political clout. Here’s a guess: she writes big checks and lets the bishop and her pastor hobnob with all the beautiful people so the spineless twits - the bishop and the pastor - have sold their souls. They aren’t alone. The Catholic hierarchy and the Catholic priesthood in the US are over run by liberation theology gays. The American Catholic Church - with a few exceptions like Bernardin, Chaput, the guy in Peoria - are not Roman Catholic anymore. It is a schismatic church. If it weren’t, Pelosi, Cuomo, Kerry and the Kennedys would have been publicly excommunicated long ago.

Father Pavone appears to know about Catholicism, it’s her Bishop that appears to be ignorant.

The catholic Church is busy trying to bring in Mexicans and Catholic Hispanics to fill their pews , so they avoid any issues with Pelosi.

They let her tell them what the Church teaches so that she will help them bring in the Hispanics.

It’s a deal with the Devil.

I could be wrong ,but all indications point that way.
They haven’t blocked her from any of the Sacraments.

I had never thought about it but some of her proclamations are so far from what Christianity teaches that one would wonder.

I doubt she thinks of herself as a child of Satan but she may actually be.

Well, the picture is actually posted in a proper context, if you know anything about the music warfare in the Church since VII. He's using it as a mascot for bad music:

Bad Writing

Theologians of divine providence such as Jean-Pierre de Caussade have speculated that the permissive will of God allows great evils to occur to plant the seeds of some greater good. To further that end, we’d like to propose some wholesome uses for some of these musical productions of the post-conciliar liturgical renewal and the Oregon Catholic Press:

  • “Be Not Afraid.” This nasal, repetitive drone is too simplistic to accompany the Teletubbies, much less the Eucharist. While its message is apparently intended to be reassuring, NIMH clinical trials have shown that it reduces serotonin levels in the brain’s frontal cortex, mimicking the short-term effects of cocaine withdrawal or clinical depression. For this reason, we suggest its use is indicated on patients suffering from the manic phase of bipolar disorder, to normalize mood swings and render them compliant with hospital staff.
  • “Glory and Praise.” Another sing-songy brain-punisher, this tune is chipper in precisely the manner of a chatty, middle-aged Chicagoan chirping loudly about her grandchildren’s potty training on her cell phone in the next booth at a diner as you try to read your newspaper. But its melody and cadence are perfectly calculated to repel invasive deer which gather outside suburban homes in search of food. (Those concerned about animal rights should use a hunting rifle instead.)
  • “Here I am, Lord.” This hymn depicts a human soul responding to the call of Christ—but the music is whiny and grim, evoking in most people’s minds a can of rancid potted meat, being slowly spread by windshield wipers across a plate of dirty auto glass. You hear Christ calling, all right—but you feel like He’s some hobo who’s tapping at your window at 4 a.m. to wake you from a sound sleep so He can ask you directions to Dunkin’ Donuts. You don’t so much want to answer Him as clock him with a slipper. Sung in a sleepwalking, zombie rhythm, its use at Communion time produces a strikingly cinematic effect, which film critics have dubbed “The Church of the Living Dead.” Here again, we have a chance to bring good out of evil: In preliminary tests, use of this song by military interrogators has proved a successful, slightly more humane replacement for water-boarding.
  • “Hosea.” A bland, saccharine adaptation of a stirring Old Testament story—a prophetic humdinger in which the relationship of God and His people is presented as a marriage, and human unfaithfulness compared to prostitution. Stern stuff—here reduced by banal lyrics and anile music to a warbling monologue from a straight to video chick-flick starring Patrick Swayze. What is more, one of the song’s lines is unintentionally obscene. When the cantor drones “Long… have I… waited for your… coming,” it’s impossible for any Catholic above age 11 to avoid conceiving of certain conjugal—difficulties. If you’re experiencing such problems, you surely hear about them often enough; they shouldn’t assault you in church. Being helpful souls, we have searched out a positive use for this terrible, evil song: Many Catholic husbands who love their wives have attended closely to the injunction of Pope John Paul II, who noted in Love and Responsibility that “the woman’s excitement grows more slowly than that of the man. The man must take this difference between male and female reactions into account.” If you’re one of those husbands trying to take that difference into account, this song is for you. Hum it slowly to yourself, at crucial moments. There’s no more potent buzz-kill known to man.

For the reasons WHY such terrible hymns have been inflicted on us, check out the NEW edition of Thomas Day's Why Catholics Can't Sing, which I just finished editing. It comes out this summer. Pre-order it now!

Pelosi is a Baltimore daughter of a Baltimore Democrat Catholic politician. It’s been said that Catholic churches in Baltimore are essentially Democrat Union Halls with crucifixes on top. What I’m trying to say is, her “Catholicism” is merely a logo she affixes to sell herself to a certain constituency. The secular, liberal, godless, anti-American constituency is only too happy to embrace a “Catholic” like Pelosi and she is only too happy to accommodate them. Co-dependency, socialist style.

She doesn’t have to worship Satan to want to kill babies. She could, for example, worship Moloch-Baal, Kali, Tlaloc, Cronus or Saturn, or whatever the filth gods the Druids worshiped.

Whether Satan is at work behind such pagan deities is a good question, and could be reasonably asserted. Likewise, she could be sacrificing to any of the princes of Hell that is to her interest:

Lucifer: pride
Mammon: greed
Asmodeus: lust
Leviathan: envy
Beelzebub: gluttony
Satan: wrath
Belphegor: sloth

But which of these deadly sins really stands out in Nancy Pelosi, as a central tenet of her life?

In Pelosi’s religion First Abortion is the equivalent of First Communion the Catholic Religion. A second Abortion is the equivalent of Confirmation. Pelosic Heaven is a Paradise where people go when they die to gloat over the souls of the aborted babies.

Yeah, democrats perpetuate a monstrous policy of infanticide, yet still manage to remain constantly self-righteous and morally indignant.
That’s what happens when you cross ‘man is the measure of all things’ nihilists with worshippers of political power.
Now they’re sending arms to like-minded power-crazy maniacs who carve the heads off their enemies and eat their hearts.

SanFranNan is a feminist and a lot of feminists are into new age goddess worship. Hard core feminists want to replace men in human and spiritual life because they think females are superior to men in the earthly and heavenly realms.

So, since God is referred to as Him and feminists have deemed him an inferior, sexist God, they want to replace Him with a superior female goddess conjured by them. These feminist pagans operating in the Catholic church, replace Jesus (the Trinity) with the worship of Mary. Claiming she is the “mother of God”, they subordinate God to the feminist’s mother goddess, Mary.

“Obey your mother and father” is one of the Ten Commandments. When the pagans like Nancy claim Mary is God’s mother, the mother Mary has parental authority over Jesus. So, they go to “the top” and pray to goddess Mary. God must obey his mother, and so she is above God in their religion. So there is no need to pray to Jesus because Mary is above him as his mother. Pagans don’t mention Jesus because he is subordinate to his mother, goddess Mary.

Having been raised Catholic, I recognized this manipulation or twisting of Heaven in the third grade and stuck with Jesus in prayer and worship. By the fifth grade I found myself sorrowfully confessing my failures and sins to Jesus, seeking His forgiveness and mercy, directly.

It’s easy for Sanfrannan to claim baby killing sacred, because, unlike her sexist Son, the feminist goddess, Mary, understands the plight and of feminist sluts.
