Pelosi Says Pope Unqualified to Have an Opinion on Abortion
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 28 July 2012 | John Semmens

Posted on 07/29/2012 11:40:13 AM PDT by John Semmens

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) demanded that Pope Benedict XVI “stop meddling in America’s health care debate.”

“It’s a question of experience and perspective,” Pelosi asserted. “I’ve had five children. I know what it’s like to bring a child into the world. And so has every woman who’s given birth. It’s pure Hell.”

“On the other hand, there’s never been a female Pope,” Pelosi pointed out. “No Pope has every had to suffer the pains of child birth. So, with the Pope lacking this crucial life experience, why should we consider his views on abortion sacrosanct when it is quite clear that he doesn’t have the qualifications to hold a meaningful opinion?”

In Pelosi’s view, “the decision on whether health insurance should be required to cover abortions is one that ought to be reserved to those capable of appreciating its impact. To paraphrase one of our greatest presidents, it should be a the decision of the women, by the women, and for the women.”

And for the news behind the semi-news / semi-satire:

Pelosi: Catholic Archdioceses Were Not ‘Speaking’ for Catholic Church When They Sued Administration

Sadly, John, your satire is so close to the truth that it is hard to distinguish from reality at times.

This maybe semi-news/semi-satire, but I believe
those words could have come out of Pelosi mouth eactly
as written.

When is the Catholic Church going to take some action against this witch? Its failure to do so is a disgrace to the faithful and makes it look uncertain, weak, and afraid.

That’s okay. Nancy’s unqualified to have an opinion on religion.

And since I’m in before the troll: Body-fluid jokes about other Freepers’ names are much like the body fluids themselves. A little goes a long way.

“When is the Catholic Church going to take some action against this witch? Its failure to do so is a disgrace to the faithful and makes it look uncertain, weak, and afraid.”

I have asked that question many times not just about Pelosi but just about every major Catholic politican on the left and center. Whatever action should have been taken 30 years ago.

That may very well happen since a new, conservative cardinal has just been put in place in San Francisco.

Me three!!

I was going to use my simple, standard reply to:

“On the other hand, there’s never been a female Pope,...”

Which is:

“...and that is because there is no Biblical justification for the ordination of women.”

Everything is so bizarre now that it gives new meaning to truth is stranger than fiction.

I am almost always alerted to this but somehow I fell for it initially. I wonder if she really did say this at some time.

It should be the decision of the baby, by the baby, and for the baby because that’s what will be killed in an abortion.

OTOH: The Pope was once a pre-born baby, not an alien hatchling.

I know this is satire, but last time I heard, every male had to come in this world initially as a fetus in his mother’s uterus. And since 1973 in this nation, the legal protection both male and female babies enjoyed for the first 9 months of their lives has disappeared. Once Nancy Pelosi proves that males never had to gestate in their mother’s wombs, then she can say males have no rigt to an opinion on this issue and not one second before.

Pelosi asserted. “I’ve had five children. I know what it’s like to bring a child into the world. And so has every woman who’s given birth. It’s pure Hell.”

Can you imagine the pure hell of having a nitwit like Pelosi as your mother?

I think their policy is that they don’t hold you responsible for mortal sin if you have the mind of a pre-rational child.

Reminds me of the old joke about the Italian man, after hearing a sermon about contraception, telling the priest “Father, you no play’a da game, you no make’a da rules!”

" It’s pure Hell."

Pelosi is unqualified to have an opinion about Hell.
