Ah, If T’were Only True

From Ace of Spades:

 

Last Saturday afternoon in Washington, D.C. an aide to Nancy Pelosi visited the Bishop of the Catholic Cathedral in D.C. He told the Cardinal that Nancy Pelosi would be attending the next day’s Mass, and asked if the Cardinal would kindly point out Pelosi to the congregation and say a few words that would include calling Pelosi a saint.

The Cardinal replied, “No. I don’t really like the woman, and there are issues of conflict with the Catholic Church over some of Pelosi’s views.” Pelosi’s aide then said, “Look, I’ll write a check here and now for a donation of $100,000 to you if you’ll just tell the congregation you see Pelosi as a saint.”

The Cardinal thought about it and said, “Well, the Church can use the money, so I’ll work your request into tomorrow’s sermon.” As Pelosi’s aide promised, Nancy Pelosi appeared for the Sunday worship and seated herself prominently at the forward left side of the center aisle. As promised, at the start of his sermon, the Cardinal pointed out that Ms. Pelosi was present.

The Cardinal went on to explain to the congregation, “While Ms. Pelosi’s presence is probably an honor to some, 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 is also 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 obligations both in Washington and in California . The woman is simply not to be trusted.”

The Cardinal concluded. “But, when compared with Hillary Clinton, Ms. Pelosi is a saint.”

  1. I received this in an email about 5 or 6 weeks ago. I made several copies for distribution to friends and acquaintances. One of the funniest (and sadly truest) emails I have received in a long time.

  2. It is sort of curious that both Pelosi and Dianne Feinstein married men who’ve acquired an 8-digit net worth from real estate investment. Not sure Paul Pelosi was all that wealthy when she married him (much less that she married him for money).

    The problem with Pelosi is that climbing the ladder of Democratic politics took precedence over faith and culture. She has five children and grew up in a family of eight children. She was elected to Congress just prior to her father’s death in 1987, after a dozen years of activity in the California party apparat (which included a stint as state chairman). Her father was an old school ward heeler. I wonder what he had to say to her.

  3. “It is sort of curious that both Pelosi and Dianne Feinstein married men who’ve acquired an 8-digit net worth from real estate investment. Not sure Paul Pelosi was all that wealthy when she married him (much less that she married him for money).”

    As far as I know he wasn’t. He was all of 23 when they got married in 1963 and as far as I know he didn’t get his wealth from his parents. Their joint careers have illustrated however how lucrative a marriage between business and politics can be. His older brother Ron seems to have blazed the way for them in San Francisco, both in business and in politics.

  4. A hired man, who is not a shepherd
    and whose sheep are not his own,
    sees a wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away,
    and the wolf catches and scatters them.
    This is because he works for pay and has no concern for the sheep.

    What is a public servant?
    A hired hand?
    Pelosi is not a servant of the Lord….if she was she truly would be a servant of the people. She is a hired hand… Hired by Lucifer.

  5. If there was a miracle that would cause the Almighty to break a sweat in pulling off it would be Cardinal Weurl having the guts to say something like that.

  6. Wuerl.

    Because Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s primary residence is in San Francisco her bishop is Archbishop Salvatore Joseph Cordileone. Therefore, doesn’t he, not Archbishop of Washington, D.C. Donald Wuerl, have the responsibility of publicly correcting her public and well-publicized errors in the Faith?

  7. Because Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s primary residence is in San Francisco

    There are members of Congress who have a pied a terre around Washington and their family at home (Paul Ryan is one). There are also members of Congress who have only a notional residency back home (Sen Roberts of Kansas, who has lived in Washington since 1969 and whose wife owns a business in NoVa). It’s probable Pelosi owns multiple homes as her husband is in the real estate business (and very rich).

  8. I’m sorry, I got distracted from this article. Nancy Pelosi is speaking this morning as the guest of honor at the oldest Catholic university in the United States. Let me turn off the video broadcast so I can resume reading this.
