Nancy Pelosi says she is a faithful Roman Catholic. She has said that Marco Rubio is a bad Roman Catholic:
“I thoroughly disagree (with Rubio’s opposition to gay marriage), being raised in a Catholic family, raising a Catholic family, mainstream Catholic – well, the Baltimore Catechism, to get back to our hometown of Baltimore, was what we were raised on. And I think that this statement by Senator Rubio is most unfortunate. It’s a polarizing statement. The fact is, is that what we’re taught was to respect people in our faith and to say that this endangers mainstream Christian thinking is so completely wrong.”
Here are the question and answer to the marriage issue in the Baltimore Catechism:
Q. What is the Sacrament of Matrimony?
A. The Sacrament of Matrimony is the Sacrament which unites a Christian man and woman in lawful marriage.
Being a “mainstream Catholic” when Nancy Pelosi was growing up, the Catholic Church never would have approved of same-sex marriage. It would have been “mainstream Christian” thinking in the 1940s and 1950s (Pelosi was born in 1940) that same-sex sexuality was a sin, and same-sex marriage never would have been considered.
Have you noticed that liberals can appeal to their religious beliefs but conservatives can’t? You never hear liberals say “there’s a separation between church and state” when a fellow-liberal appeals to the Bible…
