Pelosi: ‘I do my religion on Sundays, in church’

Adding to the ever-growing file of “there she goes again…”

NEWS FLASH Nancy Pelosi is only Catholic one day a week. Unfortunately, it is the other 6 days that are problematic.

This is the same Catholic politician who has repeatedly misrepresented the teachings of the Catholic Church, now she claims Bishops in the diocese involved with the recent lawsuits are not speaking for the Catholic Church. Time and again, Popes and Bishops have affirmed Catholic politicians have a moral obligation. We would encourage Leader Pelosi to be Catholic 7 days a week…not just on Sunday. Unfortunately, her voting record and public position on settled issues of the Church just confirm what she said today.

The Washington Examiner reports this afternoon following her weekly press conference that “House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., a Roman Catholic, refused to say whether she supported her church’s teaching that contraception is immoral.”

“I do my religion on Sundays, in church, and I try to go other days of the week; I don’t do it at this press conference,” Pelosi said curtly as a reporter asked about her view of the church position on contraception.

Joel Gehrke continues in his reporting:

Pelosi brushed off the organizations and church dioceses that filed suing the Obama administration over the contraception mandate. “I don’t think that’s the entire Catholic Church,” she said. “Those people have a right to sue, but I don’t think they’re speaking ex cathedra for the Catholic Church.”

In February, Pelosi accused the bishops of falsely using religious liberty arguments to impose their ideology on the country. “It wasn’t about church and state, it was about an ideological point of view that flies in the face, again, of the respect that we need to have to have for women, the God-given free will that we have to have responsibility for the role that women’s health plays in the lives of their families and in our country, and the strength of women,” she said.
