Nancy Pelosi’s double standard

Posted on: November 22, 2011

As a former Roman Catholic, I can tell you that Nancy Pelosi is NOT a true Catholic. Maybe she goes to church every Sunday, Easter and Christmas, but attending church may make her a practicing Catholic but it does not make her a true Catholic.

Why do I say that? Because true Roman Catholics believe in how precious life is and wouldn’t even think about abortion being a “choice.” However, Ms. Pelosi has recently said that Catholics have this “conscience” thing and is upset that the U.S. Catholic bishops wouldn’t approve the Obama administration to force insurance companies to cover birth control, contraception and drugs that could cause abortions. The bishops say that, under such a decision, some religious groups might have to provide the insurance against their moral and religious views.

This is where she disagrees with her own religious leaders.  She said, “[Those who disagree] may not like the language,’’ she told The Washington Post, “but the truth is what I said. I’m a devout Catholic and I honor my faith and love it . . . but they have this conscience thing [that puts women at risk.]”

Pelosi further told WaPo that she is also put out whenever a Catholic gives the pope’s positions on life more credence than they do hers. Why? Because Nancy Pelosi knows the personal experience of motherhood as the pope never could. Okay, she can disagree with the authority of the pope but what makes her “opinion” better than the pope’s opinion that he is following the teachings of the church?

As I said before, just going to Church and saying you are a Catholic doesn’t make you a true Catholic. If she rejects the authority how credible is she calling herself Catholic? She should be honest with herself as well as us about her true beliefs in her faith.

Because Pelosi sees herself as superior to EVERYONE else.
