I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Leading Member Of Congress Advocates Pursuing Policies “In Keeping With Values Of Jesus”

Except it’s not who you think it would be:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says she believes she must pursue public policies “in keeping with the values” of Jesus Christ, “The Word made Flesh.”

Pelosi, who is a Catholic and who favors legalized abortion, voted against the ban on partial-birth abortion that was enacted into law in 2003.

At a May 6 Catholic Community Conference on Capitol Hill, the speaker said: “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,” Pelosi said, “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.”

Umm, Madame Speaker, aren’t you supposed to be part of the party that believes in separation of church and state ?

  1. Daniel says:

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi a self serving person

  2. This is why Jefferson was in favor of keeping religion and government separate.

  3. Scott says:

    When I was out collecting signatures, the most common question asked of me is “What church do you go to?”, followed by the abortion question. So, it doesn’t surprise me that even the Democrats want to pander to the religious. The majority of Americans are religious, and without discussion, would be all for mixing religion with government, as long as it’s their religion. Like the bank robber saying, “that’s where the money is”, this is where the votes are.

  4. Barbara D. says:

    Then why don’t Christian conservative like her?
