House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) vowed today that she will join with the Obama administration in standing up against the Catholic Church in defending a new regulation that will require Catholic individuals to buy, and Catholic institutions to provide, health insurance plans that cover sterilizations and artificial contraceptives, including those that induce abortions....
At her Wednesday press briefing, CNSNews.com asked Pelosi: "The administration has issued a regulation that will require all health-care plans to cover sterilization and all FDA-approved contraceptives, including those that induce abortions. This would force Catholic individuals and institutions to act against their consciences. All across the nation, Catholic bishops are saying-"
Pelosi responded: "Is this a speech, or do we have a question in disguise as a speech?"
CNSNews.com continued..."Catholic bishops are saying they will not comply with this law. Will you stand with your fellow Catholics in resisting this law or will you stick by the administration?"
Pelosi: "First of all, I am going to stick with my fellow Catholics in supporting the administration on this. I think it was a very courageous decision that they made, and I support it."

No Nancy it was foolhardy and one day God’s mercy towards you is going to cease and then you will pay for your blasphemies and iniquites.
Why hasn’t she been kicked out?
I live for the day they ex-communicate that beach.
At what point will she be excommunicated! The Church needs to make a stand, and now!
We need a Pope with the balls to start using excommunication again! VERY PUBLIC EXCOMMUNICATION!
There is absolutely ZERO excuse for Pelousy’s behavior. She’s done nothing more than stooped over the Pope’s pointy hat and took a frosty, Botox-laden deuce in it.
I wonder what Pelosi thinks about Excommunication? It should be done immediately, and all other Catholics that agree with her should be ousted too.
Apparently she jsut put a false god before the Lord.
Evil to make your skin crawl.
Too bad Martin Luther isn’t around today. He could reform the church without worrying about papal bulls and excommunication. Nothing seems to get under the pope’s skin anymore.
Arrogance always passes for courage to the Leftists.
IMO, this will be a bad thing for her AND her boyfriend, Barack!
Pi$$ing off several million Catholics is NOT a good idea!!
We have to pass it to see what’s in it.
Well, SURPRISE liberal Catholics, especially the leftist priests and bishops. Now we get to see what you get for 30 pieces of gummint silver.
” She is just plain evil. “
Apparently Pelosi’s “evil” must flourish, and she must beg the Church for ex-communication on her hands and knees before the heirarchy will publically ex-communicate her.
Pelosi is not Catholic now, and excommunicated herself long ago, but the Church declines to proclaim the fact.
What IS that all about?
Being excommunicated is no big deal to someone who has no interest (her) in belonging to the club. What she should fear is the day she is thrown into the lake of fire for all of eternity when she stands before the King of kings and Lord of lords, and has to try to explain herself, because her “self-importance” won’t save her then.
“Pi$$ing off several million Catholics is NOT a good idea!!”
Hasn’t hurt them in the past. And I’d guess a fair number of Catholics vote Obama anyway.
Pelosi goes against her church. Well surprise surprise.
