Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, a part-time theologian, went on "Meet the Press" yesterday and decided to demonstrate her knowledge of the positions of her chosen religion, Catholicism.
Needless to say, Nancy, like fellow Democratic theologian Howard "Job is my favorite New Testament book" Dean, demonstrates only her ignorance and dishonesty.
Check out Pelosi's first words:
I would say that as an ardent, practicing Catholic, this is an issue that I have studied for a long time.
I encourage you to read Denver Archbishop Charles Chaput's response to Pelosi's exegisis and come to a conclusion about which possibility is more likely: Did Pelosi lie about studying this for a long time, or is she such a poor student that she drew all the wrong (but politically convenient for a SF Bay Area liberal) conclusions.
You'd think that Pelosi and fellow alleged-Catholic Joe Biden would just join a Unitarian-Universalist congregation if they were intellectually honest.
