House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, says that same-sex marriage is perfectly ‘consistent’ with Christianity’s teachings.
Pelosi brought her young, impressionable grandchildren to see her receive an award from the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, she wanted to show instill in their young, impressionable minds 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 professes to be a faithful Christian and ‘mainstream Catholic,’ said her pre-adolescent grandchildren needed to see 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.
Pelosi went on to explain that same-sex marriage “is important,” and that her grandchildren “have been hearing this their whole life,” referring to the support of gay marriage, because “they go to Catholic school.”
In perhaps the most controversial of her statements, Pelosi said in a matter of fact manner that same-sex ‘marriage’ “is consistent with the dignity and worth we (as Catholics) attribute to every person.”
Roberts asked Pelosi about comments that Sen. Marco Rubio, R-FL, made saying 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 summarized Catholic catechism as being strong proponents in their teaching to support gay ‘marriage’. “The fact is, what we’re taught was to respect people in our faith,” inferring that includes gay Christians. 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.”
She concluded her rant by presuming to speak for the Vatican: “I don’t even think that Pope Francis would subscribe to what Sen. Marco Rubio said” supporting traditional marriage.
