The Latest Outrage from the Outrageous Nancy Pelosi

Nancy Pelosi has said some pretty outrageous things. Claiming she was either not informed and/or lied to regarding enhanced interrogation methods when all evidence is to the contrary comes to mind. This one is really out there though and the Anchoress is letting her have it for being either purposely deceitful or willfully ignorant. Either way her comments about praying to St. Joseph make her look ridiculous. The Anchoress explains in detail (the following is an excerpt, go read it all):

Note, because it is important in the face of her stupidity, her mendacity, her slander and her willingness to use any-and-all means to achieve her ends, the Catholic sisters who vehemently oppose this health care bill, and are not considered news-worthy by the media, or relevant by this glammed-up guttersnipe, Pelosi.

First off, Nancy, this is not the feastday of "St. Joseph the Worker." That feast day is May 1, and it is a simple (and optional) memorial. TODAY is the Solemnity of St. Joseph, in his role as the Husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Provider and Guardian for the Child Jesus. A solemnity is not an optional feastday, and Pelosi, who was educated by religious sisters and went to a Catholic college, should know that.

Her ignorance is almost sublime. "Italian Americans" certainly do honor St. Joseph, but they do not "pray" to him. They ask him to pray for them, before the Throne of his most holy and almighty step-son, the Christ.

Anyone paying attention already knew that Pelosi has no shame, but this exceeds anything I could have imagined from her. As a friend of mine used to say, "Is this woman daft?"

Possessed by the devil would be more accurate! I didn't believe in pure evil until this offensive crone became Speaker of the House.

Adrian Browne:

It's not particularly newsworthy because the Council of Major Superiors of Women Religious (CMSWR), the group of nuns the article links to, is associated with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and we already knew they were opposed. Their opposition just doesn't carry the weight of the 59,000 nuns that are *for* modest insurance industry reform.

She reminds me of my late Aunt Wilmetta. She knew what was best for everyone in the family, and worked hard to make sure they all did what she thought they should.

The only difference was, she wasn't in control of the family and couldn't force her will on them. Which was why she ended up with no relatives around her, her siblings moving to far portions of the country. Uncle Oscar, bless his soul, was a very patient man and tried to temper her foolishness. Then, about a year before he died he developed Altzheimer's and broke Wilmetta's arm.

There was some speculation in the family that it wasn't Altzheimer's - instead after 50 years of her nagging he'd just plain had enough of her constant bitching, whining, and nagging. Either way, he got sent to a nursing home and didn't see Wilmetta again.

Adrian, just so your clear; Many of the religious are for helping the poor and uninsured but nowhere are they in favor of the Senate Bill and it's funding of Abortion.

They weren't asked "Do you want to help the poor and uninsured and if so do you support the Senate Bill even if it uses tax payer funds to pay for abortion?" They were asked a loaded qustion with a narrow focus desired for a certain response, both sides do it BUT please be intellectually honest.

"Their opposition just doesn't carry the weight of the 59,000 nuns that are *for* modest insurance industry reform."

...except that's a lie.

According to the Catholic Church, there are about 63,000 nuns in the entire United States. There's no way that the vast majority of them are behind this bill in any fashion, especially with its included support of abortion and other things that are directly against Catholic doctrine.

Using the weasel words "modest insurance industry reform" doesn't get you out of it, either, since the "59,000" number that's been quoted by all of the lefty sites did NOT use that phrase.

"Modest insurance industry reform" isn't even IN this bill, for that matter.

The "59,000 nuns" line is just the latest made-up Democrat talking point, shoveled out there for the stupid people to repeat ad infinitum, until enough people believe it (and it can be used as a "known truth" talking point for years).

Perhaps. But she's also smug, self-righteous, drunk with power, convinced of her own superiority, ignorant, and completely clueless as to how much she doesn't know. Daft would just be icing on the cake.

I'm waiting for SanFran Nan to announce that Mary would have been in favor of O-care because she, too, believed in a woman's right to choose. I wonder if her priest will be having a little chat with her after Mass on Sunday.

I'm mildly surprised that Pelosi (and many other Catholic democrats, for that matter) aren't struck by lightning, spontaneously combust, or have the earth open beneath them when they take Communion.

This is the sort of throw-away lie that I've come to expect from shallow-thinking liberals like Pelosi.

On a related matter, one can always tell how long ago Pelosi had her botox treatment by the extent of her perma-smile. Judging from this tape, I'd say she had her shots no more than 24 hours ago.

Which is proof positive that Pelosi was lying. That's because, if the CIA were lying to Pelosi, criminal charges would have been brought.

The larger point, of course, is that Pelosi tries to pretend she's a Catholic, when she's not. She doesn't understand the basic tenets of the Church, and violates the precepts of the church by going against the Council of Bishops by supporting this legislation.

If Pelosi wants to support the legislation, fine. Dumb, but fine. But then she needs to leave the Church.

Perhaps Nancy should start her own church. Then the 'rules' would be whatever Nancy wanted them to be at any given point in time. She could "deem" rule changes passed as necessary.

First, to Grocho: You are a schmuck.
Next: Pelosi is NOT A CATHOLIC. Official Canon Law (the Church's LEGAL rules) declares one EXCOMMUNICATED( ie: No longer considered a Catholic) if you publicly state as truth issues in opposition to , or in defiance of, Church Law. The "right" to choose abortion, while Pelosi's choice, puts her in direct opposition to the Catholic Church and therefore EXCOMMUNICATED.
Last: to grocho again: the "Anchoress" understands Catholic Theology quite well. Obviously, You have no clue.

Hey Groucho, ever wonder how our Lord would look upon a national leader who hides behind the phrase "it's for the children" while advocating for slaughtering the unborn?

btw, you let us know where your stance on Christianity is by calling the Lord Jesus Christ "J-dude".

You stay classy.

The great, big BUT of the C... (Below threshold)

The great, big BUT of the Catholic bishops got us to to this spot in the first place. During the election cycle, Faithful Citizen outlined that each citizen has the obligation to cast an informed vote. The Bishops outlined Catholic social teaching, with the first and most prominent as:

Life and Dignity of the Human Person
The Catholic Church proclaims that human life is sacred and that the dignity of the human person is the foundation of a moral vision for society. This belief is the foundation of all the principles of our social teaching. In our society, human life is under direct attack from abortion and euthanasia. The value of human life is being threatened by cloning, embryonic stem cell research, and the use of the death penalty. The intentional targeting of civilians in war or terrorist attacks is always wrong. Catholic teaching also calls on us to work to avoid war. Nations must protect the right to life by finding increasingly effective ways to prevent conflicts and resolve them by peaceful means. We believe that every person is precious, that people are more important than things, and that the measure of every institution is whether it threatens or enhances the life and dignity of the human person. (Please note this is the foundation.)

Then came their great, big BUT(T): some verbiage about considering all aspects of a candidate and whether or not the politician works to advance abortion rights (which Obama did and does, BUT that could be ignored following some convoluted language.

And so, the big, fat BUT of the Catholic Bishops allowed Catholics to overlook Obama's life as a mistake and it's not in my pay grade statements, vote for Obama, and here we are today. I would suggest praying to St. Joseph to protect our good and generous nation.

Our Lord didn't mince words with the Pharisees, now did he? Nancy Pelosi is an actor like they were. A bad actor.
