Nancy Pelosi and Her Misunderstanding of Catholicism.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday she supports same-sex marriage because her Catholic faith “compels” her to “be against discrimination of any kind.” Catholic teaching on the matter states, ” While opposing “unjust discrimination” against homosexuals, the Catechism of the Catholic Church says that homosexual acts are “contrary to the natural law” and can never be approved and that marriage is the sacramental union of a man and a woman.”
“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,” Pelosi said during her press briefing. Pelosi called President Obama’s statement on same sex marriage, “a great day for America.” She had didn’t comment on the fact that he felt different on this same subject two years ago. Nonetheless, she went on to say, “I hope this will bring people together on the same issue. It’s a matter of time, it’s all a matter of time. On these issues, what is inevitable to some of us is inconceivable to others. What we want to do is shorten the difference between the inevitable and the inconceivable and I think the president went a long way in doing that yesterday.”
