Quote of the Day – Nancy Pelosi Edition Part 2

“I don’t know if I agree with your characterization of what the HHS put forth, but as a mother of five children in six years, as a devout Catholic, I have great respect for our bishops when they are my pastor. As lobbyists in Washington D.C., we have some areas of disagreement.”

Nancy Pelosi on the mandate that all insurance policies carry coverage for FDA approved contraceptives, including the morning after pill which the Catholic Church views as an abortion.

The exception policy for this is written so narrowly that very few Catholic entities across the country will qualify.

To qualify as a “religious employer” that will get an exemption an organization must meet all of four criteria: their purpose must be the “inculcation of religious values,” they must “primarily employ persons who share the same religious tenets,” they must “primarily serve persons who share its religious tenets,” and they must be organized under the specific section of the Internal Revenue Code used by churches per se.

Why this woman has not been excommunicated from the Catholic Church is just beyond my comprehension.  Bishops talking about life issues is lobbying?  Unreal.
