Horrible NY DailyNews Piece by Andrea Tantaros Forces Me to Defend (ugh.. it sickens me to say it) Nancy Pelosi
…is Nancy Pelosi turning to Jesus for political salvation?
Then she urged Catholic leaders to “instruct” their parishioners to support immigration reforms, saying clerics should “play a very major role” in supporting her policies, something that would likely jeopardize their nonprofit status. However, at the same news conference, she also praised the group of religious sisters whose endorsement of the health care reform bill undercut the U.S. bishops’ push for abortion funding restrictions. These comments and actions are an insulting attempt to manipulate the Catholic Church into promoting the Democratic agenda.
The issue has really come to a head lately in light of Pelosi’s recent comments before a religious group.
“It says it all for us. . . . And that Word 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.”
99.99% of the time I am going to side with Tantaros on the issues, but this one time I am going to have to stand up for (shudder) Nancy Pelosi; there is no place in politics for ridiculing a person’s religion or religious beliefs. To “assume” that Pelosi had no religious beliefs prior to the few instances cited is just poor journalism on Tantaros’ part.
A simple Google search shows me that Pelosi is in fact a Roman Catholic and little Miss Nancy wanted to be a Priest (never a nun) when she grew up. Some would argue that in fact she is ushering in the reign of Satan, but that is another discussion.
It has been postulated that Nancy Pelosi has become the most powerful Speaker of the House ever, and quite possibly one of the most powerful women in US history, while the opposite can just as easily be argued.
If Tantaros wants to be known an a Muckraker or mudslinger, then by all means, continue on the topic. But if in fact you want to be the top tier, high class, political pundit that I know Andrea Tantaros is, then leave the garbage for the slimes in the sewer.
If you do not like Pelosi’s position on Healthcare Reform (I do not), then disagree with her policy on Healthcare Reform and not the religious beliefs that led her there.
If you do not like Pelosi’s position on Immigration Reform (I do not), then disagree with her policy on Immigration Reform and not the religious beliefs that led her there.
If you do not like Pelosi’s position on Abortion (I do not), then disagree with her policy on Abortion and not the religious beliefs that led her there.
I find most everything that Nancy Pelosi stands for disagreeable, but what I find even more disagreeable are attacks on Pelosi for her religious beliefs. If you are willing to go there, then where do you go next? Attacks on her family? Are you going to accuse her of an affair?
Stick to political issues Andrea, and other than this little Pelosi fiasco, keep up the excellent work.
