Obama rejects the Pope’s blessings, Papal rosary given to pro-abortion Pelosi


WASHINGTON, April 8, 2014 – On March 27, self-described “staunch Catholic” House minority leader Nancy Pelosi excitedly accepted Planned Parenthood’s highest honor, the Margaret Sanger Award—named in honor of the eugenicist who founded America’s largest abortion chain.

Only days later at a luncheon on Tuesday, April 1, Pelosi was presented with a gift from Pope Francis, but it did not come from the Pope. This gift, a rosary blessed by the Holy Father of the Roman Catholic Church, was personally handed to President Barack Obama on the president’s first and likely only state visit to the Vatican.

Obama, a self-professed Christian then gave the papal blessing to Pelosi.  

This re-gifting of the pontiff’s rosary to Pelosi, who calls pro-lifers “oblivious” or “dumb,” has outraged pro-life leaders, especially those who are Catholic.  Some say she plays the role of Catholic shill for the Obama administration. It was just last year that the Vatican criticized Pelosi’s vehement public promotion of abortion.

Judie Brown, president and co-founder of American Life League, the oldest Catholic pro-life group in the nation, said:

“Everything that Obama has done in relation to true believing Catholics, starting with the pope himself, has been an in-your-face action toward Catholics. He is the epitome of arrogance—the ultimate audacity. This isn’t the audacity of hope; this is the audacity of shame.”

Brown, along with faithful Catholics, has every reason to be offended by Obama passing on the Pope’s gift to Pelosi. Pelosi believes that it should be illegal for religious people to reject participation in or withhold financial support for abortion. When asked, as a Catholic, about the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops suing the Obama administration over the abortion mandates contained in Obamacare, she inexplicably replied, “I am going to stick with my fellow Catholics in supporting the administration on this.”

Another statement by Pelosi further describes her distorted worldview: “As a mother of five children . . . as a practicing and respectful Catholic, [abortion] is sacred ground to me.”

Even though Roe v. Wade and the ensuing 40-year battle to restore the intrinsic right to life of every human being hinges on this very question, Pelosi says that when life begins “shouldn’t have an impact on the woman’s right to choose.”

In the real world, such bizarre actions would beg the question of mental illness. In the new world order of Obama, it is standard operating procedure.

Pelosi renounces the teachings of her faith, places man’s government above God, and deceives herself saying she is a staunch Catholic. Obama rewards her for this irreconcilable logic with a holy gift from the leader of the very Church she defies.

One might ask if Obama purposely chose April Fools’ Day to recognize Nancy Pelosi.

    STATS have proved that more CATHOLICS are DEMOCRATS and vote DEMOCRAT across the board thus supporting abortion and want to keep their heads buried in the sand that their vote does just that.

    I feel certain that the Papal Rosary gift belongs to the people of the United States, and must therefore be left in the White House collection of gifts from foreign entities and nations visited by Obama. These mementos may be displayed in Presidential libraries, however. I somehow remember that the Clintons were required to return “gifts” that they mistakenly thought were personal. Does that not apply here?

    Pelosi is a murderer, the dumbest House Speaker in the History in the
    US. Pelosi isn’t a catholic, you cannot be a catholic if you steal
    peoples money, give it to others to kill unborn babies. Sanger Award
    winner, Pelosi, loves to kill negroes.

    I agree that abortion is fundamentally wrong, but it must not be judged by or regulated in any man-made laws or opinions, that’s God’s job. We all were given the right to choose our own life’s paths from God, and is hypocritical to use Religion in judging others.

    • Untwisted Truth

      Sorry but this makes no sense. First, murder and all intentional harm to others must be illegal (regulated). Second, there is a difference between discernment and judgement. Third, if there were no man-made laws, that’s called anarchy.

      • Quest

        You’re welcome to have your say and others can have theirs.God made us that way, and man shouldn’t use religion or laws to try and take that away.
