If Speaker Nancy Pelosi is pursuing the Values of Jesus and the Bible, I am wondering where Jesus was pro-choice and condoned homosexuality. Then there is her vote and encouragement of partial birth abortion.
Here is what they told us when I was in Bible College, when interpreting any document, one must look at the writer, the situation, and the readers. In this incident Pelosi was speaking to a Catholic Group. Her intent was to gain support from the group.
If you want Catholics to support you, the Bible should be your favorite book. We just think that the Liberal leader is doing what she does best, blend in to every situation. Does she really think folks don’t see right through this?
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says she believes she must pursue public policies “in keeping with the values” of Jesus Christ, “The Word made Flesh.”
Pelosi, who is a Catholic and who favors legalized abortion, voted against the ban on partial-birth abortion that was enacted into law in 2003.
At a May 6 Catholic Community Conference on Capitol Hill, the speaker said: “They ask me all the time, ‘What is your favorite this? What is your favorite that? What is your favorite that?’ And one time, ‘What is your favorite word?’ And I said, ‘My favorite word? That is really easy. My favorite word is the Word, is the Word. And that is everything. It says it all for us. And you know the biblical reference, you know the Gospel reference of the Word.”
“And that Word,” Pelosi said, “is, we have to give voice to what that means in terms of public policy that would be in keeping with the values of the Word. The Word. Isn’t it a beautiful word when you think of it? It just covers everything. The Word.
