Nancy Pelosi just can’t seem to get her scripture right. As far as her ‘religious’ position is concerned, she has distorted it, no, outright manufactured it, and is attempting to peddle it as truth. There are a few very interesting points concerning Ms. Pelosi’s admission about her admission in ‘following Jesus’ and his teachings. The first is how she can distort the scripture to the point of manufacturing statements she made. The second is how the media made no issue of Ms. Pelosi making blatant comments about Jesus, and using Scripture and ’Christianity’ to formulate her policy. But most importantly, the deafening silence of the Bishops and other Shepherds, who have essentially given Ms. Pelosi a free pass on her much fractured Scripture lesson.

Ms. Pelosi made the claim that she is into ‘the Word’ and uses it to formulate her positions. Here are some of her words about the ‘Word’.

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 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.

Fill it in with anything you want. But, of course, we know it means: ‘The Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us.’ And that’s the great mystery of our faith. He will come again. He will come again. So, we have to make sure we’re prepared to answer in this life, or otherwise, as to how we have measured up.


Evidently, Ms. Pelosi is not familiar with Jesus statement in Matt 18:16, when he warns against harming the ‘little ones’ that it be better that a millstone be placed around their neck and cast into the sea. Or Matt 19:14 in which Jesus wants the little children to come to him. OR Matt 5:17-20 in which Jesus boldly proclaims that he has not come to ‘abolish the law, but to fulfill it’ and in the next versus warns against those who dare to change, then teach against the law, and the consequences of those actions. Or Matt 5:13-16 calling believers to be ‘salt of the earth’, and again, what happens if the salt loses its flavor. None of these verses refers to changing teachings and not following them, and gives major consequences for those daring to change them. Also, there is no evidence whatsoever, that the Bible would point to the validation of legalized child killing. Ms. Pelosi is evidently making up Bible verses, and is feeling rather smug in her assertions that she is following through on what the Word of God states. Get those millstones ready.

Ms. Pelosi is also getting a ‘free pass’ on her open discussion of Jesus with the media. Had a true conservative done something remotely close to what Ms. Pelosi did, all ‘hell’ would break loose, and the individual would minimally be denounced, and accused of not separating church and state, and be required to retract the statement. Given Ms. Pelosi’s standing with the MSM, she will get away with this. However, the real reason may be that she sold such a liberal idea of Jesus that she may have been doing the MSM and Obama some good, by making such a personal statement, using her position of Speaker to give her more credibility to enhance this theological stance. This coupled with the fact that not one church leader has come forward to challenge any of this.

This leads to the last point, and that is of the dereliction of duty by the Church. This woman has been allowed to represent her very sinful beliefs and behaviors as the official stance of the Church, and it has gone nearly unchallenged by the Bishops. Too many people outside, as well as inside the church look upon this lack of action as a de facto agreement with her position. This woman has pushed every imaginable form of legalized child killing, and has gone up to receive communion as if she has every right to be there as those who live by faith. The Bishops breed too much confusion, and it will ultimately be on their heads when, as Ms. Pelosi likes to say “he will come again’. There needs to be statements made by someone in the Church, who has the ‘gonads’ to stand up for orthodoxy. Otherwise, we might as well just read the Bible ourselves, and never step foot again in any of these heretic churches.
