Papal Smackdown on Pelosi, et al...
West Coast Catholic (and just about everyone else) beat me to the punch on this one. But the news is just so darn good. House Speaker Mrs. Dimwit Pelosi goes to the Vatican, and B16 gives her a full 15-minute lecture on the Church's unchanged teaching on abortion and the tremendous responsibilities leaders like herself have in regards to this crucial issue.
The FULL 15 minutes on THE issue on which Pelosi is on the wrong side. NO picture with the Pontiff for Pelosi to parade around like some badge of honor. An immediate press release from the Vatican explaining the content and context of the meeting so that Ms. Pelosi cannot claim anything contrary to what actually was said in the closed meeting. And the public Vatican statement charging ALL Catholics, and ESPECIALLY politicians to get on the right side of the abortion issue.
VP Biden? Sen. Kerry? Sen. Kennedy? Sen. Casey? And all you other "Catholic" politicians and judges at all levels of government? Are you listening???
Lots of links (some of which were snerched from WCC): American Papist here, news reports & commentary here, here, and here, L.A. Catholic here, Curt Jester here and George Weigel here. And the Anchoress chimes in, as well.
I LOVE IT!!! GOD BLESS POPE BENEDICT XVI!!!
