Mixed-Up Pelosi

20 Jun

 

 

It's time for Catholics to come in for a check-up.

 Going nowhere fast.

 Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi ignored the constitutional right to free speech when she wrote San Francisco’s Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone “that he should not attend” the National Organization for Marriage’s (NOM) June 19 march in Washington D.C.  (Information from www.briebart.com).

The NOM is dedicated to promoting and defending the scriptural and, therefore, Christian view of marriage as being between one man and one woman.

Pelosi, a Catholic, noted that there would probably be vicious signs and calls directed toward gays and, therefore, the event would be “venom masquerading as virtue.”

There you have it!

Could it be that citizens, who are committed Christians, do not have the right to address any social or legislative issue, but their opponents do? Where is Pelosi when anti-life protesters angrily and venomously viciously  picket pro-life events and speakers?

She spoke with a double standard that surely does not square with the Church she claims as her own, nor with the Constitution of the United States.

But maybe that’s her problem—claiming the Church as her own rather than that of the Lord Jesus Christ who is the Way, the Truth and the Life (Jn 14:6).

Maybe Pelosi needs to revisit the Scriptures: 20), and Mt 18:18).

And, as a Catholic, she may want to revisit the “Catechism of the Catholic Church”—or maybe pick it up for the first time.

    Can’t we just get a dialog on what is what? I don’t see Nancy Pelosi near you in Florida. I am not NOT GOING TO THE Marriage March because it is vacation season and we just moved. Big deal. Gays are less than 10 % of the population everywhere.

    I wonder who was reporting that day. I have been married 16 years and what they do or don’t do doesn’t DOES NOT CHANGE ANYTHING. I HAVE THE FREEDOM TO STAY MARRIED AND BE ME.

    I doubt she has read it and if she has, she has blatantly rejected God’s word and teaching of the Holy Spirit. But we don’t hear about it in the Church – we too are complicit when we don’t stand up for The Lord in all we do and say because we are scared to “offend with the truth.” The only people the truth offends are those that are against His word, and therefore creating their own morality. They have made themselves their own god. She’s no more Catholic than I am a member of congress.

    Blessings, Maggie

    #1 I don’t see that Washington DC is that far from Florida. #2 The definition of marriage can not be changed find your own word. #3 Why worry about what Gays do, they can’t procreate! #4 All we need do is pray for them like all sinners.

      I am delighted with all the responses to this blog. Thank you all for your interest. I’ll just add one more thought in response to those who do not see the same danger that I see:

      If we believers do not respond to this rapid degeneration of God’s will for marriage (one man, one woman), we will find it ever more difficult to speak the truth. Already, in our nation, Christians are mocked and attempts are made to silence our right to share our own principles and values. And it will become increasingly difficult for us to convince our kids that God is relevant and that his way is the best way.

      Again, thank you all.
