On December 5, 2019, a reporter asked Nancy Pelosi if she hates President Donald J. Trump. Nancy Pelosi sternly replied “I don’t hate anybody. I was raised in a Catholic house. We don’t hate anybody. … So don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that.”
Don’t mess with me? Yes, that’s what she said. And it wasn’t the first time she’s said exactly that, through her words and actions. And she’s proven that she means exactly that — don’t mess with me, or else.
But let’s not focus on the difference between “I was raised in a Catholic house” and “ I am a faithful Catholic”. Why bother? She’s one of the most powerful voices that stridently advocates abortion at any time, up to the instant before birth, for any or no reason, without being subject to any restrictions of any kind or nature. Everyone who was (and everyone who was not) “raised in a Catholic house” knows her strident advocacy from her high seat of power for Abortion At Will is an abomination in the eyes of the Catholic Church, and is a full frontal attack on the core tenets, morality, and authority of the Catholic Church.
And let’s not focus on the difference between saying “I don’t hate anybody” and saying what she says about President Donald J. Trump, Attorney General William Barr, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett, the Founding Fathers, and most or all of other Whites in America. Why bother? She’s one of the most powerful voices that stridently advocates labelling them in the most hateful terms: racist, traitor, liar, illegitimate, rapist.
Instead, let’s focus on what she said on June 18, 2021. She led sixty Catholic Democrats to tell the Catholic Church: Don’t mess with me, or else. The details of her threat are reported in a June 18, 2021 article published by The Daily Wire on its website at dailywire.com. A summary follows.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is about to meet, to discuss the following issue: Should Catholics in positions of power (eg. President Joe Biden and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi) who strive to make America a nation of Abortion At Will be allowed to receive Communion? Pelosi is not one to suffer a loss without a fight. And she has enormous power in her arsenal (eg. she can eliminate the income tax exemption the Catholic Church enjoys and she can compel the Catholic Church to disclose all of its finances).
How did Pelosi respond, knowing of the forthcoming Conference? She responded with a shot across the bow. She delivered to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops a “Statement of Principles”. She told the Catholic Church what kind of religion Congress favors, and what kind of religion Congress does not favor. She shredded the First Amendment, which says “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”. Nobody should be surprised that she shredded the First Amendment. While sitting behind his back, Pelosi shredded the State of the Union Address as President Donald J. Trump delivered it to America.
In her “Statement of Principles”, she ordained herself. She lectured the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops on the core tenets and morality of the Catholic Church.
The last two sentences of her “Statement of Principles” are key: “As legislators, we too are charged with being facilitators of the Constitution which guarantees religious freedom for all Americans. In doing so, we guarantee our right to live our own lives as Catholics but also foster an America with a rich diversity of faiths.”
Let’s focus on the last two sentences. What is Pelosi really saying? The answer to that question is as easy as easy can be.
What Pelosi really is saying is simply this: “I want power, absolute power. In order to have absolute power, I have to get votes. In order to get votes, I have to stridently advocate Abortion At Will. But, that’s not my fault. It’s just something I have to do. There’s no other way for me to have absolute power. Therefore, the Catholic Church cannot judge me by my actions, because my actions are something forced upon me by my desire for absolute power. If the Catholic Church were to judge me by my actions, it would be denying me my right to absolute power. That would make the Catholic Church a wrongdoer. And, you know what I do to wrongdoers. So, don’t mess with me. Or else.”
Some people might argue that Pelosi did not threaten Congressional action against Catholic Church. That argument would be less valid than arguing that Black is White. Why? Well, here’s the proof. On June 18, 2021 (the same day as Pelosi’s “Statement of Principles”), Democrat Congressman Ted Lieu tweeted to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops:
Ted Lieu @tedlieu
Dear @USCCB: I’m Catholic and I support:
-A woman’s right to choose
-Treatments for infertility
-The right for people to get a divorce
-The right of same sex marriage
Next time I go to Church, I dare you to deny me Communion.
Take a moment to read that tweet again, because it’s breathtaking. “I dare you to deny me Communion.” I DARE YOU! If that’s not a threat, Black is White.
In simpler terms, this is what Pelosi is saying to the Catholic Church: Go to Hell.
