Wondrous Inanity of the Week

Not every week throws up a wondrous inanity, but a week when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi opens her mouth has a good shot. Nanny Nan, speaking at the Catholic Community Conference on Capital Hill, told the audience our public policies must be governed by The Word made Flesh.

“We have to give voice to what that means in terms of public policy that would be in keeping with the values of the Word. The Word. Isn’t it a beautiful word when you think of it? It just covers everything. The Word. Fill it in with anything you want. But, of course, we know it means: ‘The Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us.’ And that’s the great mystery of our faith. He will come again. He will come again. So, we have to make sure we’re prepared to answer in this life, or otherwise, as to how we have measured up.”

Fill that Word in with anything you want, folks. Nancy does. Claiming her church was “flexible” on the issue of abortion, she tried to block the ban on partial birth abortions made law in 2003.

Now, of course, if a conservative pol had made these comments, the New York Times would have printed the headline in red ink: Conservative Assails American Church/State Separation.  But for the Nanny, it’s all a-ok.  And by the way, I’ll believe Pelosi’s policies are in keeping with the Word when she can find the Gospel passage in which Jesus says, “Steal Thou Money From Others to Give to the Poor.”

    I wonder how The Word Made Flesh feels about Baltimore Housewife, Nancy P.L.O.-si’s views on abortion.

    P. J. O’Rourke wrote that liberals are constantly alternating between denying God’s existence and hiding behind his apron strings.

    Poor dear. “He will come again. So, we have to make sure we’re prepared to answer in this life, or otherwise, as to how we have measured up.”

    Somehow I don’t think that the Lord will like her answer. Pursuing as much power as you can grab is not exactly what Jesus recommended. Then there’s the pushing of abortion with no (none, zip, zilch) restrictions. No, I think Nan has some splainin’ to do.

    Be fair to Nancy. It is obvious that she worships a biblical figure. Pity it happens to be the old testament Canaanite deity Molech. But still, clearly a biblical figure ;)

    I can’t believe anyone listens to her otherwise she would have been committed by now. Very little of what she says makes sense. When I’m really discouraged-I picture these people who “use” God’s name standing before him trying to justify their actions. It never turns out well for them.
