This past weekend, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi opined about the growing crisis of unaccompanied, illegal immigrant children overwhelming our border.
In a purely cynical appeal to religious sensibilities, Pelosi said the inundation of illegal immigrants into our country isn’t a crisis but an opportunity to help because these are all God’s children. She went on to say “If you believe as we do that every child, every person has a spark of divinity in them, and is therefore worthy of respect — what we saw in those [holding] rooms was a dazzling, sparkling array of God’s children, worthy of respect.”
Considering the source, this is one of the biggest loads of you-know-what Pelosi has offered to date.
First, she’s lying; period.
Second, who’s the “we” that believes everyone has the divine spark, worthy of respect? Catholics or Democrats? If Pelosi is including herself in with- and implying- Catholics, it’s an offense to all sincere Catholics who still revere the church, who read and believe the wisdom contained in the Bible. Pelosi rabidly advocates for abortion; she says her views on abortion are in line with the Catholic Church; she advocates for homosexual marriage; she wrote a letter to San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone suggesting that he rescind his support and participation for a recent March for Marriage in Washington D.C. Pelosi holds so many views contradictory to what the Catholic Church teaches that Cardinal Raymond Burke, the chief justice at the Vatican, recommended that she be denied communion- and rightly so.
Pelosi is as Catholic as I am a Nigerian goat herder. Hint: I’m neither Nigerian nor do I herd goats.
Now, if her “we” is implying Democrats, we know- again- Pelosi is full of it and she insults the intelligence of her audience. This is bad comedy, actually, because Democrats revere abortion (even late term abortion) and continually seek to silence religious objections to abortion. But more to the point, why are illegal immigrant children, “God’s children,” who deserve respect, but preborn children are not afforded the same classification and recognition as God’s children nor the honor of deserving the respect that comes with… life?
Anti-abortion religious believers continually make the same exact argument in defense of preborn life that Pelosi cynically makes here yet they are ridiculed and slandered as religious fanatics and fundamentalists who are wrongly or fascistically trying to force their religion onto other people. Why the double standard?
This woman has outright chutzpah using religion in an attempt to manipulate the religious sensibilities of the public as a political tool for her- and the Democrat- agenda? Pure evil, this woman Pelosi.
The devil is not welcome, here.
