(CNSNews.com) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that her Catholic faith “compels” her to “be against discrimination of any kind” and thus for same-sex marriage. [She is, therefore, either deeply ignorant about the Catholic Faith, she is deeply stupid, or she is lying. The Catholic Faith cannot justify condoning a redefinition of marriage to include same-sex unions. The notion is absurd.]
A reporter asked Pelosi: “Many of the people that are opposed to gay marriage cite their religion as the reason why they’re opposed. You’re a Catholic that supports gay marriage. Do you believe that religion and the idea that you can support gay marriage can be separated? And how do you grapple with the idea that you support gay marriage as a Catholic?”
Pelosi responded: “My religion has, compels me–and I love it for it–to be against discrimination of any kind in our country, and I consider this a form of discrimination. I think it’s unconstitutional on top of that. ” [While I don’t agree that it is unconstitutional to define marriage as being between one male and one female (of prescribed ages) a justification of the same on the basis of the Church’s teaching, from natural law and revelation, is impossible. She is therefore ignorant, thick, or lying.]
“So I think that yesterday was a great day for America because the president in a very personal, as well as presidential way, made history, and hopefully this will bring people together on the issue,” Pelosi said. [Let’s not pretend that anyone thinks the President’s remarks were strictly “personal”. They were a signal, much as his remarks about the sad case of Trayvon Martin in Florida were a “signal”.]
Pelosi also said that the president “went a long way” in shortening the difference between the “inevitable and the inconceivable” of the introduction of same-sex “marriage.”
“It’s a matter of time. It’s all about time. And on these issues, what is inevitable to some of us is inconceivable to others,” she said. “And what we want to do is shorten the difference between the inevitable and the inconceivable,” she continued. “And I think the president went a long way in doing that yesterday.” [Evil.]
For the love of God and His Holy Church….
