Pelosi said she thought Rubio’s statement was “unfortunate” … not because it isn’t true, but because it’s “polarizing.” Whatever that means. And to prove how very correct and Catholic she is, she mentioned how she had been raised Catholic and had raised a Catholic family. Then she added, “I don’t even think that Pope Francis would subscribe to what Marco Rubio just said.”
Uhhhhhhhhhh … no.
In June 2014, Pope Francis said that ensuring people’s right to live their religious values is increasingly difficult in the modern world “where weak thinking — this is a sickness — lowers the level of ethics in general and, in the name of a false understanding of tolerance, ends up persecuting those who defend the truth about the human person and its ethical consequences.”
Oh wait … “a false understanding of tolerance” … THAT’S what “polarizing” is about.
In March 2014, Pope Francis presented President Obama with a copy of his apostolic exhortation Evangelii Gaudium (“The Joy of the Gospel”), which criticizes some public figures who attempt to marginalize the pro-life message by presenting it as “ideological, obscurantist, and conservative.”
Pelosi is a long-time supporter of abortion and says she supports Hillary Clinton’s 2016 bid for the White House. Clinton recently opined that it isn’t enough for abortion to be legal. “Religious beliefs” about abortion also “have to be changed.”
