So much for that separation of church and state thing

May 20, 2010

Nancy Pelosi spoke at the Catholic Community Conference in Washington.  Now, I don’t have a problem with politicians being involved with religious organizations.  Go to church.  Stand up for what you believe in.  Meet with like-minded people.  Give speeches to them.  Just don’t push your political agenda on them.

If there was ever a time for the liberal gospel of “separation of church and state” to surface, it would be when a politician starts to tell religious leaders how to lead.  But it only works the other way in the liberal world, apparently.  Your politics can’t be infused with your religious beliefs, but religion can be as political as they can get it.  I mean, think of all those voters!

This is what Nasty Nancy Pelosi had to say at the conference:

I would hope that there’s one thing that we can do working together as we go forward that speaks to what the Bible tells us about the dignity and worth of every person — and that is on the subject of immigration. Because I think the Church is going to have to play a very major role in how we, in how people are treated.

The cardinals, the archbishops, the bishops that come to me and say, ‘We want you to pass immigration reform. And I say, ‘But I want you to speak about it from the pulpit.’

I want you to instruct your, whatever the communication is — the people, some of them, oppose immigration reform are sitting in those pews and you have to tell them that this is a ‘manifestation of our living the gospels.’

Do I even need to explain how scary that is?  Nancy Pelosi is no moral authority.  Frankly, none of us are.  The fact that she was allowed to stand up in front of people and speak in an official capacity and mix her political agenda with the GOSPEL of all things is ridiculous.

I’d say she should just stick to what she’s good at, but she’s not really good at much.  So I’ll just hope that she’s out of a job soon.
