Clergy support for pro-abortion Nancy Pelosi

The University of San Francisco's website has a news item (click on this post's title) about its president, Father Stephen Privett, S.J., giving the invocation at last Thursday's opening of the pro-abortion-Democrat-controlled 110th U.S. Congress and the swearing-in of Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House. The photo above, from the USF item, is of those two individuals.

Excerpts from the USF news item:

"'We pray that the new leadership of this Congress and all of its members will write into law the story of a country that measures its success by God's standards,' Fr. Privett said...Fr. Privett ended his prayer by encouraging lawmakers to focus their time on 'those who need us the most.'

"During a five-minute interview on KTVU-TV's Mornings on Two, Fr. Privett said the mood in Washington Thursday morning could be characterized by anticipation, excitement, and hope. When asked how Pelosi's Catholic faith relates to her politics, he returned to the theme of his prayer, saying 'both religion and politics are about bringing hope to despair.'"

Comment: Well, "God's standards" certainly include NOT ABORTING BABIES. And "those who need us the most" of all certainly are the destined-for-death, abortion-targeted babies in the womb. Finally, "bringing hope to despair" certainly describes the Culture of Life, not the abortion-centered Democrat agenda.

No one who cares about the lives of the millions of God's innocent preborn babies sees the rabidly pro-abortion Democrats' taking control of Congress as reason for, in Father Privett's words, "anticipation, excitement and hope."

Time for the bishops of California, including Cardinal Mahony and Archbishop Niederauer, to speak up for the babies and the right to life, and against Nancy Pelosi and her fellow pro-aborts and their baby-death-dealing agenda. (No, I am not waiting for this to happen.)

And surely Cardinal William Levada, recently of San Francisco, should do something about Mrs. Pelosi's relentless defense of aborting babies. (No, I am not waiting for that to happen, either.)

Is Nancy up on the Vatican's teachings RE: Catholic politicians and what they can and cannot in conscience support? Wait, does Nancy HAVE a conscience?
As for the Clergy who "support abortion", well, it'll be worse for them. Let's see "San Fran Nan" have an audience with Benedict XVI!

I'm from way back East and, while Nazi Lugosi is the toast of liberal misguided selfcentered NYC, she's not liked much other places. Ugh! Do I have to say "Madam Speaker"?

Why doesn't Nancy just admit the truth: she ain't no Catholic. She's not even Christian. She's a wealthy-born-into-wealth-and-political-prestige secular humanist who spouts quotations (often wrong) from hymns we know she hasn't heard in Church, at least for a long time.
And what's this business about her being "in the kitchen"? Given her background and status, I doubt she's ever had dishpan hands and likely never even boiled water.

Nancy in her deer-in-the-headlights mask stare. Quick! Hide the children!

As a past victim of Fr. Privett's brand of educational administration, I found the shot of him sporting clericals to be quite amusing. He never wears them on campus unless he's at a donor event. Glad to see he's found a friend.

Dear Anonymous 8:56 p.m.,

Sorry to hear you had educational administration difficulties.

Probably many people who look in here have experienced problems under liberal educators. Ole Q has, so I especially sympathize.

Dear Anonymous 7:49 p.m.,

Thanks for writing, especially for the news about the inaccurate quoting of hymns.

Lots of Democrat politicians have trouble with such things. One talked about "the Book of Palms." Another named an Old Testament book when asked his favorite New Testament book.

Okay, no doubt some Republicans have such trouble, too.

People should be able to choose to use birth control,
so as to avoid having to make another choice.

Abortion is the MOTHER of all holocausts...

Birth control is really another form of abortion.

It all takes the life that God intended!

Mr. Fisher says birth control is another form of abortion. I presume he means ARTIFICIAL birth control. However, certain artificial birth control methods are actually abortifacient(a drug that induces abortion) because they prevent the fertilized zygote(egg)from attaching to the lining of the uterus.
