Pelosi says she received a rosary blessed by
Pope Francis from Obama at lunch today

12:24 PM - 1 Apr 2014

Obama met Pope Francis at the Vatican for the first time last week.

Pelosi, a Catholic, has been criticized for her support of abortion — a practice which she has called “sacred ground” — by other Catholics.

Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that the California lawmaker should be denied communion.

“This is a person who obstinately, after repeated admonitions, persists in a grave sin — cooperating with the crime of procured abortion,” Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke said in an interview with The Wanderer.

Pelosi met with Pope Benedict XVI in 2009, and according to a report in Politico at the time, the Pope spoke with her about the sanctity of life and blessed some rosaries for her grandchildren’s confirmation...

So there's one church for VIPs and another for rank-and-file members? Just like every other religion, organization, club and etc. Since there is nothing stopping them from excommunicating her except the will to do so, that tells me they don't want to, right?

Totally meaningless.

Did the rosary burn up on contact or did she run away saying i’m melting?

Surprised Barry’s hands didn’t burn.

I’m guessing her regular rosary is made from the skulls of the unborn.

No big deal. She’ll probably trade them for a botox treatment.

The Pope, on learning that the rosary was given to Pelosi:

"Pelosi? If I knew it was for Pelosi, I would have smashed it into a million pieces!"

Metaphorically it’s the truth though.

UGH, but that would be fitting for her.

That Rosary has no special meaning whatsoever.

Shame on this Pope for giving it to the Marxist, particularly if he was told to whom it was going.

I saw a vision of her doing that. It hit me like a brick and I had to write it down. No idea why.

You must’ve heard the saying regarding casting pearls before swine, haven’t you?

Were they both(peloonie and zero) wearing gloves so as not to be burned by the blessed Rosary, or has Satan protected them?

Pelosi says abortion is “sacred ground” because her god is Satan.
