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."
