Nancy Pelosi has said some pretty outrageous things. Claiming she was either not informed and/or lied to regarding enhanced interrogation methods when all evidence is to the contrary comes to mind. This one is really out there though and the Anchoress is letting her have it for being either purposely deceitful or willfully ignorant. Either way her comments about praying to St. Joseph make her look ridiculous. The Anchoress explains in detail (the following is an excerpt, go read it all):
Note, because it is important in the face of her stupidity, her mendacity, her slander and her willingness to use any-and-all means to achieve her ends, the Catholic sisters who vehemently oppose this health care bill, and are not considered news-worthy by the media, or relevant by this glammed-up guttersnipe, Pelosi.
First off, Nancy, this is not the feastday of “St. Joseph the Worker.” That feast day is May 1, and it is a simple (and optional) memorial. TODAY is the Solemnity of St. Joseph, in his role as the Husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Provider and Guardian for the Child Jesus. A solemnity is not an optional feastday, and Pelosi, who was educated by religious sisters and went to a Catholic college, should know that.
Her ignorance is almost sublime. “Italian Americans” certainly do honor St. Joseph, but they do not “pray” to him. They ask him to pray for them, before the Throne of his most holy and almighty step-son, the Christ.Anyone paying attention already knew that Pelosi has no shame, but this exceeds anything I could have imagined from her. As a friend of mine used to say, “Is this woman daft?”
