And she ducked it.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), a Catholic, publicly stated earlier this year that she had a duty to pursue policies “in keeping with the values” of Jesus Christ, the “Word made Flesh.” But at a press briefing last week, when reminded of this statement, Pelosi declined to say when Jesus got the right to life.
“Whenever it was,” said Pelosi, “we bow our heads when we talk about it in church, and that’s where I’d like to talk about that.”
Video on the CNSNews page also which is worth a watch.
She had no problem discussing “The Word” being made flesh last spring, though. Up until the CNSNews reporter sticks it to here in a recent press conference.You might notice too that she never mentions the name of Jesus or invokes God in her little phoney monologue.
What fake reverence and total hypocrisy of this woman. I cannot believe that her constituents don’t see these same character flaws that we see. But then, look at Rep. Stark and his history.
She is disgusting to watch.
(I love Father Jonathan and never miss him on Fox if I can help it.)
The last 2 minutes of this video, Laura Ingraham discusses Pelosi and her meeting with the Pope and her Catholicism:
This is a very interesting question that I think many Catholics don’t want to face. Did Jesus have a right to life at conception? If you believe that the Holy Spirit came upon Mary (what we Catholics call the Immaculate Conception) then you have to believe that all life begins at conception – not at some arbitrary date in the gestation of the not-yet-born.
Science is improving and making great strides every year. That arbitrary date of a “viable fetus” will change in the future. Babies will be viable earlier and earlier outside the uterus.
These are moral questions that have to be confronted by the individual and not by the government.

Love your blog but have never commented. Just wanted to clear up what the Immaculate Conception is. Mary IS the Immaculate Conception, and this has nothing to do with the virgin birth of Jesus. Wikipedia explains it as well as anything, so I’ll just paste it below with a few words pulled out to make it shorter
The Immaculate Conception is….the conception of the Virgin Mary without any stain….of original sin. …..
The dogma states that, from the first moment of her existence, Mary was preserved by God from the lack of sanctifying grace that afflicts mankind and that she was instead filled with divine grace. It is further said by Catholics that she lived a life completely free from sin. Belief in Mary’s immaculate conception in the womb of her mother, through sexual intercourse, should not be confused with the doctrines of the virginal conception of her son Jesus, known as the Annunciation and the Virgin Birth.
Keep up the good work with your blog!

You’re absolutely correct and I appreciate your comments.
I edited the post to reflect this.
I hope you come back and post, especially when you find I’m in error.
