Pelosi Instructs Bishops at NCR Event

Well, by their irresponsible tolerance, they have asked for it. Now they are getting it "heaped up and overflowing."

From Fox News:

"The cardinals, the archbishops, the bishops that come to me and say, 'We want you to pass immigration reform,' and I said, 'I want you to speak about it from the pulpit. I want you to instruct your' -- whatever the communication is," said Pelosi, who is Catholic, speaking at the Nation's Catholic Community conference sponsored by Trinity Washington University and the National Catholic Reporter.

"The people, some (who) oppose immigration reform, are sitting in those pews, and you have to tell them that this is a manifestation of our living the gospels," she said.

She had some other observations at the event:

From CNSNews:

'Thank God for the Nuns' Who Helped Pass a 'Life-Affirming' Health Care Bill

"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) on Thursday thanked God for Roman Catholic nuns who helped pass a “life-affirming” health care reform bill that the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops opposed on the grounds that it funded abortion.

"We believe that the health care initiative was respecting the dignity and worth of every person," Pelosi, a Catholic, told the Catholic Community Conference Thursday on Capitol Hill. "I thank so many of you who helped get that passed. Thank God for the nuns. Thank God for the nuns.”

On March 25, Canon Lawyer Ed Peters wrote:

"If her prolonged public conduct does not qualify as obstinate perseverance in manifest grave sin, then, in all sincerity, I must admit to not knowing what would constitute obstinate perseverance in manifest grave sin."

Why does Ed Peters put an "if" on his not knowing?
