Catholic Democrats, a pro-abortion group, issued a statement yesterday on the “common concerns” that were discussed at the meeting between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Pope Benedict XVI. What they did not mention was the pope’s rebuke of Pelosi.
Catholics for Choice, an anti-Catholic group, said it was “encouraged that this important dialogue took place.” What they did not mention was the pope’s rebuke of Pelosi.
If we were on their side, we would advise them not to issue statements that embarrass their pro-abortion friends. Lying is one thing, but to look foolish doing so is quite another. The fact is the pope put Pelosi in her place.
