Last Saturday afternoon, in Washington, D.C., an aide to
Nancy Pelosi visited the Bishop of the Catholic cathedral in D.C. He toldthe Cardinal that Nancy Pelosi would be attending the next day's Mass, andhe asked if the Cardinal would kindly point out Pelosi to the congregationand say a few words that would include calling Pelosi a saint.
The Cardinal replied, "No. I don't really like the woman, and there areissues of conflict with the Catholic Church over certain of Pelosi'sviews."
Pelosi's aide then said, "Look, I'll write a check here and now for adonation of $100,000 to your church if you'll just tell the congregationyousee Pelosi as a saint."
The Cardinal thought about it and said, "Well, the church can use themoney, so I'll work your request into tomorrow's sermon."
As Pelosi's aide promised, Pelosi appeared for the Sunday
worship and seated herself prominently at the forward left side of thecenter aisle. As promised, at the start of his sermon, the Cardinalpointed out that Pelosi was present.
The Cardinal went on to explain to the congregation, "While Representative Pelosi's presenceis probably an honor tosome,the woman is not numbered among my personal favorite personages. Some of her most egregious views are contrary to tenets of the Church, and she tends to flip-flop on
many other issues.
Nancy Pelosi is a petty, self-absorbed hypocrite, a thumb sucker, and a nit-wit. Nancy Pelosi isalso a serial liar, a cheat, and a thief. I must say, Nancy Pelosi is the worst example
of a Catholic I have ever personally witnessed. She married for money and is using her wealth to lie to the American people. She also has a reputation for shirking her Representative obligationsboth in Washington, and in California. The woman is simply not to be trusted."
The Cardinal concluded, "But, when compared with President Obama, Representative Pelosi is a saint."
