Pelosi Vows to Stand W. Obama Against Catholic Church; Says Decision...Was 'Very Courageous'
CNS News ^ | 02/02/2012 | Thomas Cloud

Posted on 02/02/2012 1:28:21 PM PST by Pyro7480

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.

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.

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.

” 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.

Hasn’t hurt them in the past. And I’d guess a fair number of Catholics vote Obama anyway.

Liberals have a wonderful definition of ‘courage’ - repeating standard liberal elitist lines before a liberal elitist crowd. In fact, this requires no courage whatsoever.

I share your rage.

Pelosi has not been Catholic for years!

She IS excommunicated and most Catholics who are informed know it, but because the heirarchy has failed to proclaim it the Church is scandalized. This is much more than dissent.

It is they, the heirarchy, whose silence has now become the scandal!

Complaining against her that she is a “dissenter” makes it sound as if she were still Catholic, when she is not. Former Catholic, or protestant, would be far more accurate.

It was not courageous. It was a power-hungry move. We are seeing national socialism reach into every aspect of our nation. It’s the same as with the Komen organization. Listen to the outcry about that. How dare these private organizations not do what the Democrats want to be done! The Supreme Court is the last line. The GOP is meek and balless at this point. The media is the enabling liar and national court jester. Great Leader is, well, he’s Great Leader. There are only a few options remaining to turn things around. It will get worse before it gets better.

Hey, don't lump her in with protestants. Every time I state that I used to be Catholic, until I saw the light, I always get the Catholics telling me, "sorry, but once baptized a Catholic, always a Catholic". So Pelosi, Sebellious, and all the Kennedys are still yours.

She likes to talk about the large family.

what is it with many Catholic up in the north east and west coast?

On Monday to Saturday they vote for homosexuality, cross dressing, killing babies, etc and the Sunday they go to church and then tell people every day they are Catholic.

Pelosi and many others , millions infact are a disgrace to the religion.

Time fort that Pope to get over ehre and give it to the likes of Pelosi straight along with those up in PA, MA, NH, CT, NY, NJ, RI, ME, VT, DE, MD, DC, CA, WA,

I can’t believe she’s still allowed to take communion. At one time her bishop semi threatened to cut her off but then never did anything about it. I guarantee you she would be really upset if she could not take communion. I’m Catholic and its a big deal.

That is why I personally do not feel bad for the Catholic Church. Pelosi and others of her ilk have been left to continue their war on the pre-born and remain members of the Cathlic Church. Shame on them but doubly on the church that looks the other way.
