Pelosi: ‘I am going to stick with fellow Catholics’ in supporting Obama birth control
Made popular 1393 days ago in Society & Religion — February 6, 2012 ( - Even as the United States’ Catholic bishops have launched an all-out campaign against the Obama administration’s birth control mandate and urged their flocks to resistance, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has invoked the support of “fellow Catholics” to justify her position in favor of the mandate.

Pelosi was confronted at last Wednesday’s press briefing by a reporter from, who began by pointing out that the mandate, which requires all employers to cover all sterilizations and contraception, including drugs that can cause early abortions, forces Catholic individuals and institutions to act against Church teaching.

Nancy PelosiIrritated, Pelosi, a self-professed devout Catholic, interrupted: “Is this a speech, or do we have a question in disguise as a speech?”

The reporter continued, citing a letter from the U.S. bishops, in which the bishops vowed not to comply with the law, and asked: “will you stand with your fellow Catholics in resisting this law or will you stick by the Administration?”

“First of all, I am going to stick with my fellow Catholics in supporting the Administration on this. I think it was a very courageous decision that they made, and I support it,” the minority leader responded.

Nancy Pelosi a devout Catholic?
Loves abortion and claims to be devout?
So devout that if the chuch had any ethics she would be excommunicated along with the other so called Catholics who vote for abortion and same sex 'marriage'.
She is a party member first and a Catholic second. I believe the correct term is CINO!
As devout as Obama is American.
She can claim whatever she thinks is politically expedient, but facts are facts.
