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.
