Title: Nancy Pelosi: Gay ‘marriage’ is ‘consistent’ with Catholic teaching

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?"

I can not perform my flooding antics anymore about the over-simplistic "begat" stuff. Stone monitors my posts with utmost enthusiasm.

Otherwise, I would snare your comment into another trap.

I guess redleghunter doesn't understand that the several hundred brands of Chriatianity that all claim to read and understand one version of the Bible or another and each claim to have the one and only true understanding of God's words, and more importantly God's mind.

Nancy Pelosi is a Christian that justifies her position on abortion at will and gay marriage as being mainstream Catholic Church teaching, as well as Jesus' teaching. I am certain that she read at least one of the "acceptable" versions of the Bible.

Lol...

It's almost as though you're nostalgic for Babel. And doubt the power of The Almighty, Infinite, Omnipotent God to impose His will upon man to scribe EXACTLY His *intended* word.

This equation is simple to settle:

IS it or is it NOT within the power of God to impose His will, spirit and intent upon man??

Yeah, but who would discern it? The Pope, Nancy Pelosi, Tammy Faye, Oral Roberts or Liberator? Choose your own leader as required. To me, it is all a mystery and can not be defined by anyone walking this planet.

Oh and here are a real heaping pile of manure:

Bishop Michael Alexander, Herbert W. Armstrong, Simeon Ashe, Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl of Shaftesbury, Arthur Balfour, Glenn Beck, William Eugene Blackstone, Andrew Bonar, Horatius Bonar, Edmund Calamy, John Cotton, Ted Cruz, John Nelson Darby, Tom DeLay, Mike Evans, Jerry Falwell, Don Finto, Joseph Frey, John Gill, Thomas Goodwin, William Gouge, John Hagee, William Hechler, Walid Shoebat, Malcolm Hedding, Mike Huckabee, Alan Keyes, Hal Lindsey, John F. MacArthur, Robert Murray M'Cheyne, James David Manning, Increase Mather, Chuck Missler, Sandor Nemeth, John Owen, David Pawson, E. J. Poole-Connor, Pat Robertson, Denis Michael Rohan, Samuel Rutherford, J C Ryle, Charles Simeon, Charles Spurgeon, Ezra Stiles, Jack Van Impe, John Walvoord, Charles Wesley John Wesley, William Wilberforce, Orde Wingate
Oh, you might choose, THESE TWO IDIOTS: Jerry Falwell and John Hagee whom actually advocate the violation of common Jesus' sayings by using FORCE to conquer Palestine. These two "Christian" evangelists advocate the destruction of the world because they know Jesus and believe in war.

Here's the most penetrating of all answers. And He did walk the earth and will again.

John 18:

37 Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?”

Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”

Jesus Christ also spoke much of having ears but not hearing. Here's a parable which explains such a situation:

Luke 8:

4 And when a great multitude had gathered, and they had come to Him from every city, He spoke by a parable: 5 “A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some fell by the wayside; and it was trampled down, and the birds of the air devoured it. 6 Some fell on rock; and as soon as it sprang up, it withered away because it lacked moisture. 7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up with it and choked it. 8 But others fell on good ground, sprang up, and yielded a crop a hundredfold.” When He had said these things He cried, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”

9 Then His disciples asked Him, saying, “What does this parable mean?”

10 And He said, “To you it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the rest it is given in parables, that

‘Seeing they may not see, And hearing they may not understand.’

11 “Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. 12 Those by the wayside are the ones who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. 13 But the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, who believe for a while and in time of temptation fall away. 14 Now the ones that fell among thorns are those who, when they have heard, go out and are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to maturity. 15 But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience.
