Pelosi Blatantly Lied Regarding Church’s Teaching on Abortion, So Why Not Misrepresent Hamas, Too?

When it comes to the immorality of killing humans outside of self-defense, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has an amazing ability to discard obvious truth.

First there was her arrogant falsehood in an August, 2008 interview that the Catholic Church, which she claims to belong to, does not know when human life begins: “I would say that as an ardent, practicing Catholic, this is an issue that I have studied for a long time. And what I know is, over the centuries, the doctors of the Church have not been able to make that definition.” Wrong to the nth degree. (1,2,3)

Now we hear this from her:

“And we have to confer with the Qataris, who have told me over and over again that Hamas is a humanitarian organization.” (4)

This is very interesting considering that “Qatar is one of the few nations in the world that refuses to recognize that Hamas, an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, is comprised of terrorists” and that the U.S. designated Hamas a Foreign Terrorist Organization in 1997 when Pelosi was already a Representative from California. (5)

In addition, Hamas’ “founding charter calls for Jews to be killed and says all Muslims are duty-bound to join a jihad to destroy Israel.” (6)

How is she able to sneak hallucinatory drugs with her into the Capitol?

1 – “Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person –among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life.” From paragraph 2270 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Liguori Publications, Liguori, MO, 1994

2 – “Therefore, Natural Law forbids any attempt at destroying fetal life.”
“The teachings of the Catholic Church admit of no doubt on the subject. Such moral questions, when they are submitted, are decided by the Tribunal of the Holy Office. Now this authority decreed, 28 May, 1884, and again, 18 August, 1889, that “it cannot be safely taught in Catholic schools that it is lawful to perform . . . any surgical operation which is directly destructive of the life of the fetus or the mother.” From the Catholic Encyclopedia, http://www.newadvent.org

3 – “David tells us, ‘Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me’ (Ps. 51:5, NIV). Since sinfulness is a spiritual rather than a physical condition, David must have had a spiritual nature from the time of conception.”
“The same is shown in James 2:26, which tells us that ‘the body without the spirit is dead’: The soul is the life-principle of the human body. Since from the time of conception the child’s body is alive (as shown by the fact it is growing), the child’s body must already have its spirit.” Posted on http://www.catholic.com/tracts/abortion
