Pelosi on contraception insurance mandate: I am going to stick with my fellow Catholics in supporting the administration on this

posted at 7:00 pm on February 3, 2012 by Tina Korbe

When the administration announced earlier this month that it would stick to its decision to require religiously-affiliated employers to provide their employees with insurance that covers contraception, the national Catholic reaction was, to put it mildly, less than supportive. All across the country, Catholic bishops wrote and read letters to their flocks that read, “We cannot — we will not — comply with this unjust law.”

Today, a CNSNews.com reporter asked Nancy Pelosi whether she would stand with her fellow Catholics and oppose the law or whether she would stand with the administration and support it. The former Speaker of the House responded with this doozy:

“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.”

Ack. She must have misunderstood the question. The point of the question was that she can’t have it both ways. This exercise is getting old. When will Pelosi just admit that she doesn’t think the pope and bishops have any more moral authority than she does — and that, on matters of “women’s health,” they have even less? Oh, wait. She has. She has said that she thinks her personal experience of motherhood qualifies her to be her own authority on the abortion issue and she has long lamented the collective Catholic conscience on contraception. Of what, exactly, does her Catholicism consist? At least Joe Biden reportedly fought against the administration’s decision in private negotiations.

Yes, Ms. Pelosi, the administration was so courageous to use this decision to curry favor with voters Obama needs. In fact, isn’t that the definition of courage? To make safe your own hide before you worry about anybody else’s? That sort of example always stirred my heroic impulses, I assure you.

Please, people, pay attention to congressional elections. If you think Pelosi is unbearable now, just imagine her as Speaker of the House again.

“If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion, or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein. If there are any circumstances which permit an exception, they do not now occur to us.” –US. Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson for the majority in West Virginia v. Barnette.

So Nancy Pelosi and our constitutional lecturer in chief think they can prescribe that the Catholic church find contraception and abortion orthodox. I guess according to Jackson’s language, Obama and Pelosi are high officials. But they sure seem petty.

I live in MA, so I am used to liberal twisting of language to try to fool you again. “Sticking with Catholics” Ick.

As a Catholic, I think they are forcing this issue to make Catholics come out and seem to make a great deal over contraception, and then with the other hand they are going to be doing something even worse.

I am wondering, if anyone knows, where is the Obama care, on providing FREE artificial insemination, surrogacy, IVF treatments, expensive special proceedures that have nothing to do with essential health care in this package…Look for it people, and they will want the sex change operation included there too, paid for by your insurance company.

This is the mandate power of “The Secretary Shall,” make everyone’s policy equal to a cadillac plan. Even if the courts say you don’t have to buy it, they can say at Sebelius’ Health and Human services that it is not an insurance plan without reproductive services.

What I notice from a legal point of view is that people confuse the mandate to actually have insurance with the power to mandate what actually goes into a plan and what insurance companies MAY DO. The Secretary Shall.

If the mandate to have insurance fails the test of the commerce clause, or whatever Obama is having them appeal on, they still get to MANDATE what goes in. Same word, two levels of meaning.

Pelosi’s favorite Catholic archbishop, Karen, and Karen’s wife, Alice, both said they were fine with mandatory subsidies of birth control. “Birth control is as common and natural as a topless full-figured lesbian wearing her bib overalls to a guitar mass.” Pelosi had to agree.

RBMN on February 3, 2012 at 7:34 PM

You know, the Catholic Church used to excommunicate people who didn’t follow their teachings. I know my aunt could no longer go to communion after her divorse, for example.

What happened to that Church? If the Pope truly wants to stand by the tenents of the Church, he should make a statement with public figures who don’t abide by them.

My family is at least honest, when we no longer believed many of the tenents of the Church, we left and no longer call ourselves Catholic.

Nancy Pelosi will be 72 years old on her upcoming birthday in late March.

Since we can’t expect San Francisco’s liberal voters to vote her out of office, the best way to get Pelosi out of Congress is to work hard to make sure the Republican Congressional candidate in your district wins his/her election in November.

If we can make sure the Republicans win an embarrassingly large majority in the House of Representatives in November, the Democrats might finally strip Pelosi of her leadership status.

Without the power that comes with leadership status, it would be easier to persuade Nancy Pelosi to retire to spend more time with her many grandchildren. Or at least it would be more likely that she might decide not to run for re-election in 2014.

The key is to elect as many Republicans as possible to the House of Representatives in 2012.

Please let us all know who the best Republican candidate is in your Congressional district.

Nancy once said that her favorite word in the Bible was “Word.”
As Casey Stengel once said, “You can look it up.”

Deep, deep theological thinking. Is well on her way to being declared a “Doctor of the Church,” right up there with Aquinas.

Actually, I keep reading what she said and it makes me queasy.

“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.”

She didn’t misunderstand the question. That is just how the San Fran Grand Nan operates. Go with your talking points and do not stop until they walk away.

That was the talking point her handlers gave her and she stuck with it to the bitter stupefying end. I sincerely believe this women is on the brink of dementia. So far she is a functioning dementia but I do not giver her much longer. I think if the truth be told her handlers know this, but the thirst of once again being the staffer of ‘the Speaker of the House’ keeps the front up.

Let me try to untangle this. The Catholic Church is not a democracy, so “a majority” is irrelevant. Do you understand? True Catholics are with the Pope. You have to be obedient.

Second, nice try denigrating the religion with “agreeing with pretty much anything.” There is a lot the Church does NOT say, in part because the Church believes people have free will. However, when it comes to killing babies, yes, you are right, the Church has in fact taken a stand. And Pelosi has divorced herself from that position. So, not only is she NOT Catholic, but even a Muslim would not respect her, because he would see that she was defying her own religion.

You don’t get it, do ya? It’s not what “a majority of Catholics” agree upon. It’s what the Church teaches.

People like Pelosi are using the label ‘Catholic’ only to garner votes with those who are. They are imposters, plain and simple.

chewmeister on February 3, 2012 at 7:50 PM

Herald of Woe

You are correct, Sir.

A Roman Catholic must give, at the very least, inner consent to the infallible teachings of the Magisterium. Condemnation of abortion, which the Church calls “an unspeakable act,” is one of those and goes back to the very beginning.

However, consent and obedience do not apply to all things, such as discipline or opinions, e.g. I disagreed with JPII’s opinion on the death penalty and I disagreed with the discipline of Paul VI’s New Mass.

Nancy is speaking and acting contrary to a magisterial teaching to which consent must be given. She is way over the line into apostasy.

This is evidence of the biggest problem with trying to have intelligent conversation on these issues. The Catholic Church does not operate by majority rule; never has, never will.

If Pelosi had said a significant number of people who call themselves Catholic are on her side that would be correct. What she actually said, and, sadly, probably believes, is absolute hogwash.

Kathleen Sebelius is, allegedly, a Catholic. We are not supposed to judge others, that is, it is not for us to say anything about the eternal destination of our fellow man. Even so, I sure as heck wouldn’t want to be her (or Pelosi or Biden or Murray or Gregoire (WA gov)) on that final day.

Any Catholic who seriously thinks this rule is a good idea or something to which the Church should just “adapt” needs to seriously re-think their position, look into what the Church actually teaches and either accept it or go join a church that supports their view. There are certainly enough out there to choose from.

corrupt, crazy pelsoi is, once again, so drunk even she doesn’t know what she’s saying.

While she mis-served as THE WORST SPEAKER IN AMERICAN HISTORY, we taxpayers shelled out more than $10,000 PER MONTH for crazy pelosi’s liquor tab! (Not to mention the $18,736 PER MONTH we payed for her San Francisco office, plus the hundreds of thousands for her constant use of huge military jets for her, and her family members’, personal transport. And then there’s the more than $5 TRILLION in increased American debt she wasted.) One thing we can deduce from that: crazy pelosi is almost ALWAYS drunk as a skunk, so we can expect her to make as much sense as charlie sheen in her statements. What’s most amazing, of course, is that she can ever make a statement WITHOUT FALLING OVER.

Seriously, just how drunk do you have to be to say something like: “We have to pass the bill [obozocare] so that you can find out what’s in it.” or “…elections shouldn’t matter as much as they do…” ?

Get help, pelosi — AA has a huge team waiting just for you.

It’s so perfectly barefaced. So utterly, completely pure. No batted eyelash. No stammering blush. Much, much more impressive than “I did not have sex with that woman. Ms. Lewinsky.”

I didn’t know a person’s brain, conspiring with their ego, could attain this level of … arrogant … whatever this terrible and dead thing is.

But I never want to look at her again.

Evidently in Nancy-poos world, Barry Obama runs the Catholic Church.

According to the Botox Queen….that’s her job. She speaks for all of her “fellow catholics”.

The hubris of this nutcase knows no bounds, nor does she have even the semblance of a moral compass.

She self-excommunicated a long time ago. She has formally taught abortion as an acceptable part of the Catholic faith.

She may also already be formally excommunicated… that would likely be a private matter between her and her bishop.

In this case, the bishop should make an excommunication a public manner. She is a heretic – and that’s a damning enough charge (it was for Galileo) as her actions are publicly damaging to the church as a whole, regardless if she left or not. (I doubt she ever did leave; it’s very likely that the church in San Fran is so lax and immoral that no one has EVER cared to call her out.)

I’d go one step further and publicly excommunicate her entire family for life. All of them.

She is sooooo smart! It’s scary.

A Roman Catholic must give, at the very least, inner consent to the infallible teachings of the Magisterium.

And thus explains why Martin Luther split from the church and spurred the Protestant Reformation. (For those who don’t know, he was a German monk who refused to comply with the practice of indulgences – basically offering a payment to the church in order for the sacrament of reconciliation – and openly left the church.)
