WASHINGTON, D.C., June 2, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, says that same-sex “marriage” is perfectly "consistent" with Catholic Christianity.

Pelosi brought her grandchildren to see her receive an award from the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, to show the young, impressionable children that "marriage equality is important."

In an interview with Thomas Roberts on MSNBC, Pelosi said she took the children to the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund gala because "it's really important to see what the practice of our faith is."

Pelosi, who described herself as a faithful Christian and “mainstream Catholic,” said her pre-adolescent grandchildren needed to see and be present at a gay and lesbian celebration in order "to give them the image that we have for all people," meaning the image the Catholic Church has for all.

The House Minority Leader explained that same-sex marriage "is important," and that her grandchildren "have been hearing this [message supporting gay 'marriage'] their whole life" because "they go to Catholic school."

In perhaps the most controversial of her statements, Pelosi said, matter-of-factly, that same-sex 'marriage' "is consistent with the dignity and worth we [Catholics] attribute to every person."

Roberts asked about comments from Sen. Marco Rubio, R-FL, that continual demonization of traditional Christians could get the Catechism of the Catholic Church branded as “hate speech.” Pelosi responded, "I thoroughly disagree, being raised in a Catholic family [and] raising a Catholic family."

Pelosi contrasted what she characterized as Sen. Rubio's "polarizing" and "unfortunate" Catholicism with her own "mainstream Christian thinking."

She summarized Catholic catechism as teaching support of gay 'marriage'. "The fact is, what we’re taught was to respect people in our faith." Pelosi went on to criticize Rubio's opposition to gay 'marriage', explaining, "To say that [homosexual 'marriage'] endangers mainstream Christian thinking is so completely wrong."

Pelosi added, “I don’t even think that Pope Francis would subscribe to what Sen. Marco Rubio said" supporting traditional marriage.

The House leader concluded with the hope that Rubio would change his position on gay 'marriage'. "I hope that we can persuade him differently, because the country is going in a completely different direction now. And it’s very, very exciting."

It was not her first theological faux pas. In the past, she has claimed that the Catholic Church has only opposed abortion for "like maybe 50 years or something like that."

Stop right there, and that's the only true statement in the article.

This is how there are 10,000 Christian Bibles and/or churches ... next, there shall be the Church of Nancy, just another Christian adding to the publick confusion of: "just what is a Christian?"

......adding to the publick confusion of: "just what is a Christian?" ......

There is no confusion over what is a Christian, it is someone that has been batized into the religion as a follower of Christ and believe in Him as Lord. The confusion is over what exactly that means re: what Jesus expects from us. Like all of us Nancy will eventually find out if she is confused about Christ or not.

The publick confusion of: "just what is a Christian?"

Are you and SOSO really *still* confused about this definition?

Start small and simple, with John 3:16....then eliminate all magic beads and incantations, candles, statues, and specific "church" rules & regs. Find a mentor or church that concentrates solely on *scriptural* tenets.
