Nancy Pelosi asks the Catholic church to preach in favor of amnesty for illegal aliens

May 10, 2010

  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.

    The audacity and arrogance of this woman knows no bounds! She chooses to use the Bible to move forward her agenda, but as far as the Bible directing her life and behavior… well…

    Unbelievable! Her arrogance just astounds me.

      Duplicity is a word that also comes to mind with her.

    As a Catholic who practices her faith, I find Nancy Pelosi to be one of the most offensive people I know of. The power and influence that that woman has, who claims to be Catholic, stands for nothing that the church represents. She is a sham! She’s “Catholic” only when it’s convenient. Have the Church support immigration reform from the pulpit? How about she support the pro-life movement and traditional marriage? The audacity never fails to suprise me.

    And as an aside, our priest does support treating those who come here looking for a better life with kindness and dignity. And whether I agree with him or not as to their means of getting here, he doesn’t need any politician to tell him what he needs to support.

      How could I have forgotten to mention the abortion issue in this post? This woman only seems to use her religion when she feels it can promote her political agenda. How wrong is that!?

    Okay, where is the smiley who is banging his head on the wall when I need him? Nancy Pelosi continues to remind me of why I distrust her so greatly. I would ask her this question. Since when does upholding the laws of our country constitute treating people unfairly or as if they have no dignity or worth? All we are asking is for our laws to be enforced, not treat those who have broken them like trash. There is a difference, although she fails to recognize that difference.

      I will bang my head against the wall for you. 🙂 It seems to me that not upholding the laws of our country is to treat American citizens unfairly. Nobody is condoning treating these people unfairly, as Pelosi would have us believe, we just want the law to be followed. I guess that is too much to ask for if you are Nancy Pelosi.

        “Noblody is condoning not treating these people unfaily”

        Uh, Steve, care to try that again? Spelling mistakes is one thing, but if you don’t remove either the “not” or the “un”, you’re gonna get some heat! ;->

    I’m Catholic and I’ve talked about Pelosi’s stand on abortion and gay marriage. She is a CINO – Catholic In Name Only. The cardinals, archbishops, and bishops wouldn’t get anywhere near her unless they were chastising her.
