Pelosi Gets the Smack From Cardinal Egan!

I just love it when Pro-Choice Catholic politicians seem to think that religion cannot mix into public policy.. unless it supports them. And in this case, it didn't even do that. Turns out Pelosi is full of crap when it comes to theology and Church teaching. What I love about his Eminence, Cardinal Egan of New York, is that he takes it one step further by basically saying Pelosi is unfit to be a public servant! Read it below:


Like many other citizens of this nation, I was shocked to learn that the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the United States of America would make the kind of statements that were made to Mr. Tom Brokaw of NBC-TV on Sunday, August 24, 2008. What the Speaker had to say about theologians and their positions regarding abortion was not only misinformed; it was also, and especially, utterly incredible in this day and age.

We are blessed in the 21st century with crystal-clear photographs and action films of the living realities within their pregnant mothers. No one with the slightest measure of integrity or honor could fail to know what these marvelous beings manifestly, clearly, and obviously are, as they smile and wave into the world outside the womb. In simplest terms, they are human beings with an inalienable right to live, a right that the Speaker of the House of Representatives is bound to defend at all costs for the most basic of ethical reasons. They are not parts of their mothers, and what they are depends not at all upon the opinions of theologians of any faith. Anyone who dares to defend that they may be legitimately killed because another human being “chooses” to do so or for any other equally ridiculous reason should not be providing leadership in a civilized democracy worthy of the name.

And if you'd like to get more back story with great coverage, check out this AP article!

And also in response to Pelosi's rdiculous theology, the US Bishops released this sheet explaining the Church's 2,000 year stance on abortion.
