Here in Des Moines, our Catholic Bishop said, “I have some bad news.” He proceeded to rail against the Obama Mandate that the entire Catholic community in the U.S. is railing against.
And yet former Speaker of the House said in the video above,
“I’m going to stand 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.”
Ms. Pelosi in fact stands with only with the Secular Humanists on the Left bent on establishing their religion as the official state religion.
She surely doesn’t stand with the Most Reverend Joseph E. Kurtz, D.D., Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Louisville, who characterized the Obama Mandate as:
“…an alarming and serious matter that negatively impacts the Church in the United States and that strikes at the fundamental right to religious liberty for all citizens of any faith.”
She doesn’t stand with Cardinal-designate, Timothy Dolan, who said:
“Never before has the federal government forced individuals and organizations to go out into the marketplace and buy a product that violates their conscience. This shouldn’t happen in a land where free exercise of religion ranks first in the Bill of Rights.”
She doesn’t even stand with liberal columnist, E.J. Dionne, a Catholic, who said Obama:
“botched” the controversy and “threw his progressive Catholic allies under the bus” by refusing to “balance the competing liberty interests here.”
Ms. Pelosi doesn’t stand with rank and file Catholics like me. She is an embarrassment to practicing Catholics when she dare characterize herself as a Catholic.
A Catholic proudly believes what the Church teaches.
A Catholic doesn’t actively oppose the Church in the public square by supporting laws and mandates that force Catholics to violate their faith, or be fined, jailed, or bankrupted.
This is who Nancy Pelosi is.
She bows to the high priest of Secular Humanism, Barack Obama, at the same time she spits on the Church she long ago betrayed.
She offends serious Catholics every time she opens her mouth.
