SFOP Honoree Nancy Pelosi Flat-out Lies

On Sunday Nancy Pelosi was honored at the San Francisco Organizing Project's "Soul of the City" dinner. Sponsors of the dinner included four San Francisco Catholic parishes: Corpus Christi, Mission Dolores, St. Patrick, and St. Peter. The Archdiocese of San Francisco is a "partner" with the SFOP, and the Archdiocese is responsible for determining the SFOP's suitability to receive CCHD funding.

Nancy Pelosi today at the Health Care "summit":

"My colleague, Leader Boehner, the law of the land is there is no public funding of abortion and there is no public funding of abortion in these bills and I don't want our listeners or viewers to get the wrong impression from what you said," Pelosi asserted.

Douglas Johnson, the legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee, responded:

"Speaker Pelosi has her own idiosyncratic dictionary, in which federal agencies can pay for abortion on demand without spending 'public funds' or 'taxpayer funds' for abortion," Johnson said. "In ordinary English, however, this is deceptive claptrap."

On a happier note, the Bishop of the Diocese of Green Bay, Wisconsin is withholding funds from the CCHD this year.

Green Bay's Bishop David L. Ricken was formerly our shepherd in the Diocese of Cheyenne (Wyo.). I'm not surprised he's withholding funds from the CCHD this year. From our experience, he's extremely pro-life (he and Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life were roommates in Rome); we were sorry to see him leave Wyoming.
