Further proof of Liberal Elitism

Once again, our wonderful Speaker of the House has taken it upon her shoulders to speak for a group that doesn’t wish for her representation…in the least. This time it is the Catholic Church as a whole, of which she designates herself as an “ardent, practicing” member. When asked to help Senator Obama with his less than poor answer to Pastor Rick Warren’s question on when life begins, Pelosi instead decides to let the world know how we have all simply misconstrued the church’s stance on the subject. After studying this issue “for a long time,” she procedes to then align the Catholic Church, and its views, with her own left-wing agenda. Her answers here simply blow my mind. Although it has become very hard for her to shock me with anything she says, or advocates, I have to admit I am a little stunned at her boldness. I am linking the article below, so that you can read it for yourself. I would have to think that in this political season, this is quite a way to attempt to sure up the Catholic vote for the upcoming election!

Edit: I found the actual video clip of this interview on YouTube, so I decided to post it. It’s only a little over 3 minutes long and worth watching.

I Married my bride, Erin, in 2003. We have 3 children: Emma, Elijah, and Lydia. I have served full-time on staff at Westwood Baptist Church, in Roxboro, NC, since summer of 2006 as Pastor of Students & Discipleship. I am currently enrolled at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, pursuing my Doctorate of Education.

  1. There are several comments that could be made, but I’ll forgive her ignorance of church history and rather focus on her comment:‘Pelosi then said that in her view the question of when life begins is a non-issue in the debate on abortion. “The point is, is that it shouldn’t have an impact on the woman’s right to choose.” ‘ Actually, that’s the only question that is in the least bit relevant. If it is a human being, then the desires of the mother, husband, boyfriend, or Obama matter not one wit. If it is not a human being, then neither does it matter at all what is done and when it is done.Her (and other pro-“choice” advocates) inconsistency can be illustrated by asking if I want kill my 6 month old child, should it matter that I have struggled with the issue, talked to my spouse, my pastor, my doctor, and after much personal angst, decided to end the 6 month old’s life? You probably shudder just reading this.Another example to illustrate inconsistency is to say that a building is about to be demolished. “Is there anyone still in the building?” you ask? “I don’t know — maybe — but we’re just not sure” replies the contractor. What do you do? Do you blow up the building anyway and hope no one is inside? Or do you err on the side of life and not destroy the building?Something else to notice is that I haven’t used a single religious argument. I don’t need one. The only relevant question is “Is it a person?” If it is a person or you aren’t sure, then the answer is really rather obvious.Clear thinking is sorely needed and hard to come by.

  2. Thanks for the comments. You are exactly right about the need for common sense. You are also right that this should not be a religious thing. But, don’t you love Pelosi’s line where she throws in St. Augustine’s name, just for good measure!? Classic.

  3. Perhaps since she’s such an Augustinian scholar, she may be familiar his quote:“If you believe what you like in the gospels, and reject what you don’t like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself.”

What do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts!
