Last Saturday afternoon in Washington , D C , an aide to
Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi visited the Bishop of the Catholic cathedral.
He told the Cardinal that Nancy Pelosi would be attending the next day’s
Mass, and he 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 certain of Pelosi’s
Pelosi’s aide then said, “Look, I’ll write a check here and now for
a donation of $100,000 to your church 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, House Speaker 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 Speaker Pelosi was present.
The Cardinal went on to explain to the congregation, “While Speaker
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
The Cardinal concluded, “But, when compared with President Obama,
House Speaker Pelosi is a saint.”
Gosh, I love Catholics!
