I’m so happy we have Nancy Pelosi

First, pro-abortion “Catholic” US Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi gave the Bill Clinton argument that, since the ECFs disagreed on “ensoulment,” abortion is OK.

So, Archbishop Donald Wuerl, hardly one of our more outspoken and zealous bishops, issued a rather mild, “pastoral” correction.

Several other bishops chimed in. Even Fr. Thomas Reese, SJ, said that Pelosi overstepped her bounds.

The Pro-Life Catholics in the House of Representatives criticized her, too.

So, now, her office has issued another “clarification,” saying that the Church *is* consistent on human life, but lots of Catholics disagree, so Catholics aren’t obligated to listen to the Church.

Boy, Catholics who want the bishops to stand up and be counted against heretics have no better friend these days than Nancy Pelosi.

"Huge Dem Crowd"

At the end of C. S. Lewis’ The Magician’s Nephew, Uncle Andrew keeps refering to Jadis as a “Dem fine woman.” To wit, I found it hilarious to read the following headline:
