It seems the Religious Right Left is at it again, forcing their beliefs into the political realm.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was being interviewed on Morning Joe on Friday, explaining why religious and rural Americans were no longer supporting her party. Pelosi helpfully explained that Democrats are doing God’s work, but not getting any credit.
“And while we’re doing the Lord’s work by ministering to the needs of God’s creation, they [Republicans] are ignoring those needs, which is to dishonor the God who made them.”
It’s tough keeping up track of which policies Pelosi considers “the Lord’s work”, and which policies are “dishonoring God”.
Fining faith based charities that won’t provide contraception contrary to their religious teachings? That’s the Lord’s work.
Helping poor, inner city children choose a private school over their failing public school? That’s dishonoring the God who made them.
Ensuring that abortion is not only legal up until the moment of delivery, but also financed by taxpayers? The Lord’s work.
Supporting an administration whose EPA turned a pristine Colorado river orange, and then refused to pay for the damages? Well, that’s “ministering to the needs of God’s creation.”
Opposing Syrian refugee programs because of the risks ISIS might exploit the program? That’s ignoring the needs of God’s creation.
Refusing to accept Cuban refugees? Obviously, the Lord’s work.
