Fr. Z Must Read This Blog

He seems to be swiping our keys for understanding Nancy Pelosi.

A reporter asked Pelosi: “Many of the people that are opposed to gay marriage cite their religion as the reason why they’re opposed. You’re a Catholic that supports gay marriage. Do you believe that religion and the idea that you can support gay marriage can be separated? And how do you grapple with the idea that you support gay marriage as a Catholic?” 

Pelosi responded: “My religion has, compels me–and I love it for it–to be against discrimination of any kind in our country, and I consider this a form of discrimination. I think it’s unconstitutional on top of that.”

I'd suggest looking at the whole write-up the good Father provides for this entry. He even has video available if you somehow doubt that Nan is stupid enough/insane enough/liar enough to make the above claims. This is a true shame.

The deeper question continues to rise though. As the enemies of Christ's Church become more and more bold in taking a stance adverse to the Church, when do the shepherds finally say that enough is enough? This step will take courage, so we should pray for them. As part of these prayers, I'd advise making friends with Archbishop Becket:
