The Church of Pelosi

Ms. Pelosi once again has shown us what it is NOT to have a well informed conscience in matters of the Catholic faith.

On Meet The Press this weekend she seemed to redefine Catholic teachings and well, Catholic history for that matter in an attempt to justify Barak Obama's stand on abortion.

REP. PELOSI: I would say that as an ardent, practicing Catholic, this is an issue that I have studied for a long time. And what I know is, over the centuries, the doctors of the church have not been able to make that definition. And Senator--St. Augustine said at three months...

...And this is like maybe 50 years or something like that. So again, over the history of the church, this is an issue of controversy. But it is, it is also true that God has given us, each of us, a free will and a responsibility to answer for our actions. And we want abortions to be safe, rare, and reduce the number of abortions. That's why we have this fight in Congress over contraception. My Republican colleagues do not support contraception. If you want to reduce the number of abortions, and we all do, we must--it would behoove you to support family planning and, and contraception, you would think...

St. Augustine said what?!

The Catholic Church has only been against abortion only in the last 50 years?!

It's just another example of Catholics in the political square creating their own church. What's really sad is that most will swallow their false statements and incorrect facts hook-line-and-sinker!

Fast forward to minute 32:00 to see the exchange between Ms.Pelosi and Mr. Tom Brokow on the abortion questions.

Catholidoxy has a nice rebuttal to this exchange and does a thorough job of correction Pelosi's total catholic education meltdown.

HERE is the transcript

... and I refer Ms. Pelosi to her nearest parish for RCIA. A class should be starting soon.

Lesson 1: First Century, Didache

You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish.75

God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves. Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes.76

- - The Catholic Church has always been against abortion! (that means contraception too)
