Nancy Pelosi asks the Catholic church to preach in favor of amnesty for illegal aliens
Nancy Pelosi has gone on record as saying that she has talked to Catholic leaders about immigration reform and has asked them to speak from the pulpit in favor of passing amnesty for illegal aliens because it “is a manifestation of our living the gospels.”
I would hope that there’s one thing that we can do working together as we go forward that speaks to what the Bible tells us about the dignity and worth of every person — and that is on the subject of immigration,” Pelosi said in her remarks. “Because I think the Church is going to have to play a very major role in how we, in how people are treated.”
“The cardinals, the archbishops, the bishops that come to me and say, ‘We want you to pass immigration reform,’” disclosed Pelosi. “And I say, ‘But I want you to speak about it from the pulpit.’
“I want you to instruct your, whatever the communication is — the people, some of them, oppose immigration reform are sitting in those pews and you have to tell them that this is a ‘manifestation of our living the gospels,’” said Pelosi. “Our patron saint of San Francisco, St. Francis of Assisi, he said, ‘preach the gospel –sometimes use words.’ We need the words to be said because it isn’t being picked up automatically.”
I don’t want to spend too much time on this, so I just have a couple of questions about Nancy Pelosi’s “suggestions” to the Catholic church, whatever happened to the separation of church and state that the liberals have somehow written into the constitution? And, does she think that the Catholic church should be quiet in their opposition to gay marriage? If so, it shows that the “separation of church and state” only applies when liberals think it should apply.
