In her Thursday press briefing, when asked about Obama’s failure to mention cap-and-trade, Pelosi said Congress had a “moral responsibility” to preserve “God’s beautiful creation” and reminded reporters that she had made energy and climate change legislation her “flagship issue.”
“It is a defense, a security issue, a health issue, an environmental issue, it is an economic issue, and it is a moral issue for us to honor the obligation we have to pass this planet on to future generations intact,” she said. “And, if you believe, as I do, that it is also that this is God’s beautiful creation, we have a moral responsibility to preserve it.
“So, whatever achieves that result, Congress will work its will,” she said. “We will have a legislative process that sees what options work, that can pass, that honor the principles that the President set forth and that many in the Congress have been advocating for a long time. As you may recall, I called this my flagship issue when I became speaker.”
Let me get this straight. The latest socialist campaign to scare Americans into relinquishing liberty, wealth, and a productive capitalist economy has clearly imploded around all the lying scammers hiding behind the Climate Change curtain. But now Nancy Pelosi is telling us we still must submit to those things, because God told her He wants us to.
It’s not the first time that Nancy Pelosi said that Christian doctrine should regulate public policy. And the ACLU is cool with it, because Pelosi can be trusted to invoke God’s will correctly – as a tool to seize wealth, enlarge government, shrink personal liberty, strangle innovation, and feed and nurture her very own voter base of petulant, dependent victims.
Unlike George Bush who believes each individual is created by God with an inherent right to freedom and self determination (sounds familiar doesn’t it?) That’s why George Bush’s faith was scary and dangerous, and he couldn’t speak of it without liberals going into shrieking apoplectic seizures. (Although, admittedly difficult to distinguish from the norm in Pelosi’s case.)
Why else would Thomas Jefferson add the words “There shall be a wall of separation between conservative church and the state” to the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights; and inscribe them on the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Memorial, and the Supreme Court just before sending out the militia to rip the Ten Commandments from schoolhouse walls, dismantle veteran’s memorial crosses, and smash nativity scenes in the town square?
Consequently, Pelosi has unique license to inject religion into public policy and say things like this: “Fill it in with anything you want. But, of course, we know it means: ‘The Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us.’ And that’s the great mystery of our faith. He will come again. He will come again. So, we have to make sure we’re prepared to answer in this life, or otherwise, as to how we have measured up.”
Excuse, me, but in a completely unrelated matter:
Anyway, where was I? Oh yes. Nancy Pelosi says she is following God’s divine guidance as she paddles America’s canoe closer and closer to Niagara Falls.
I think I’ll verify that with the big guy Himself. More at Pirate’s Cove.
