Right on schedule, Nancy Pelosi tries to do what Ted Kennedy and Mario Cuomo have done before her: give talking points to Catholics who wish to hop on to policy that flies in the face of church teaching.
Youll recall it was Kennedy (and later Cuomo) who gave voice to the corkscrew notion that one could be personally opposed to abortion but too broad-minded to impose my views on others.
Because, as you know, modern-day liberals would never presume to impose their views on others, not at all. The HHS Mandate? Pffffft! its not imposing anything on Catholic institutions! Its just making them do the right thing!
Kennedys duplicitous language was effective, though. It informed whole generations of very cowardly Catholic politicians and others.
[It] sounded so reasonable and tolerant that it simplified the abortion debate for people who did not care to consider how nonsensical it was. Being personally opposed to the death penalty, would Kennedy have tried not to impose those views on states, had he the chance? Had he been personally opposed to slavery 150 years ago, would he not certainly have tried to impose his views on others?
In this case, Mrs. Pelosi is attempting to impose her views, and the views of the NY Times on others, but shes not personally opposed, so she cant mush-mouth like Mario; instead, she tries to suggest in the face of the entire teaching body of the church and thousands of years of understanding and reason, that say differently that her Catholicism compels it.
My religion has, compels meand I love it for itto be against discrimination of any kind in our country, and I consider this a form of discrimination. I think its unconstitutional on top of that.
You know, I dont think Dorothy Day...........

The Anti-Pope prevaricator pontificates
I know plenty of Catholics who take Pelosi, Cuomo and Kennedy seriously.
They deserve each other.
Do they still Burn Heretics at the Stake ?
Satan’s handmaiden is giving religious advice?
Yes, but on any given Sunday she can appear in Holy Mass, sit perhaps in seating nearest a camera, stride forward and receive the Most Holy Sacrament as if just short of veneration herself.
I wouldn’t want to be her meeting with St. Peter at the pearly gates.
I will sit in Church tomorrow with a whole batch of democrats that are as bad as Pelosi.
The Democrat Party is their religion-—to be honest I don’t know why they even bother to show up every Sunday.
If this abortion loving witch is christian than I’m the Pope.
And she'll have to answer to God for that when she meets him on that 'great gettin up mornin'.
It is a shame the parents (parent) of these abortion loving pols didn’t hold the same view as their off spring.
We would be a lot better off.
There is no deception for the Judge of All. Pelosi will be Judged. Unfortunately, so will I. By the same Judge.
Have I committed grievous sins? Yes. I pray for mercy from Him, though. I do not lecture Catholics as to how the Church is wrong. The Church is correct. It is fallible men that are wrong...
Well. look on the bright side. Once inside, name it and that he should get another ‘parts’ car the same engine and so forth.
I like ‘84 $ ‘85s SE or not. Does it have metal shavings in the old fluid? Once it has been driving for a while? I’m sure your DMV/Sheriff will give you the R&R advice, hell, they might even have one that’s been ‘laying’ around and has everything it has and remember, please keep us updated.
Apparently not in her home parish she can't.
Why hasn’t Belosi and other CINO’s like her been excommunicated????
A very good question and something that folks like me are bringing up to our bishops.
Some in my family posted that comment on Facebook, and were saying that Catholics must support gay marriage.
