Nancy Pelosi Eats Her "Words"

I loved this "split screen" of sorts for two reasons:
  1. No one with any sense on either side of the political isle actually believed her when she uttered these words about her favorite "Word" evidenced by the lack of outrage that normally accompanies a politician saying this sort of thing. It does make me wonder... who was she speaking to?
  2. I can just imagine a twenty-year-old Nancy Pelosi calling some person of authority, over thirty I would presume, to account on some words they had spoken earlier; Saul Alinsky's Rules For Radicals tucked snugly under her arm.
I love the way she moves right along by quickly calling on another reporter. Just a quick note: she was not in a church in either of the clips.

"Let me tell you something: Every one of these careless words is going to come back to haunt you. There will be a time of Reckoning. Words are powerful, take them seriously. Words can be your salvation. Words can also be your damnation." Matthew 12:36-37 The Message Bible

Hahahaha!! ZAP! I don't know who that reporter was who asked that question to Nancy Pelosi, but that was brilliantly composed.

It pains me to no end to see Nancy Pelosi pass herself off as a devout Catholic Christian while ignoring Scripture, and then scurrying for cover and invoking the lame-ass excuse that such discussions belong in church. I wonder how she feels when she reads CCC 2270:

"Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person - among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life.

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you. (Jer 1:5)

"My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately wrought in the depths of the earth. (Ps 139:15)"

Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Beautiful, isn't it?

"Fill it in with anything you want..."?

Oh Dan, some days it is hard to remember to pray for our leaders in the way I ought.
