A shameless act of hypocrisy by the House minority leader.
Nancy Pelosi, who boasts a 100 percent rating from NARAL Pro-Choice America and Planned Parenthood Action Fund, chastised the GOP health care bill on Tuesday by saying it “dishonors God.” She went on to encourage her Republican colleagues not to dismantle Obamacare by seemingly referring to it as “God’s creation.”
“I know my colleagues are people of faith,”Pelosi said. “They tell us that all the time.”
“So, this is God’s creation, we have a real responsibility to it,” she continued. “To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.”
“So from our faith, from our responsibility and community in our country to acknowledging that we are all one family in our country, it is very important that our colleagues not only read the bill, but examine their consciences and look into their hearts, and maybe look into the eyes of these families, and maybe make a decision in favor of what is right,” she stated.
This isn’t the first time Pelosi has invoked religion when it’s suited her. In early June, she claimed President Trump was dishonoring God and the religious community by exiting from the Paris climate agreement. In an Inauguration Day interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” she again said Republicans dishonor God with their policies. She really likes that phrase.
Let me ask this to the self-described “devout Catholic” from San Francisco: where was this religious devotion when evangelical Christians were being sued into baking cakes for functions they didn’t believe in? Where was this devotion to God when she continually bashed religious freedom laws? Does she honor God when she makes it her life’s work to keep Planned Parenthood publicly funded and continually killing unborn children? Let’s not forget, Pelosi leads a party that, in its 2012 convention, removed reference to God in their platform. When leaders tried to add language pertaining to God in a last-minute voice vote, the crowd booed in overwhelming unison.
This is the person who is going to lecture Republicans on honoring God?
The insincerity in her tone when she invokes religion is so stark it’s almost laughable.
