WASHINGTON, DC, March 19, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – On the solemn Catholic feast of one of the most prestigious patron saints of unborn children, St. Joseph, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has invoked the husband of Mary and the stepfather of Jesus to help pass the abortion-laden health care bill.
“Today is the feast of St. Joseph the Worker,” Pelosi told reporters Friday on Capitol Hill. “It’s a day where we remember and pray to St. Joseph to benefit the workers of America, and that’s exactly what our health care bill will do.”
However, Catholic commentators quickly pointed out that Pelosi’s Catholic pitch was less than pitch-perfect: March 19 is actually the Catholic feast of St. Joseph, husband of Mary, and not the feast of St. Joseph the Worker, which takes place on May 1.
AmericanPapist blogger Thomas Peters wrote that, “When I first heard about this I thought it was a joke. But Nancy Pelosi’s callous way of twisting her faith to suit her politics is beyond parody.”
The Anchoress absolutely unloads on Pelosi here.
For all the latest on the push for shoving ObamaCare through the House, this is the best link for you to visit and peruse. I’m Tweeting about it when I can (getting ready to take a break). The updates are coming in fast and furious. As far as that alleged Democrat “momentum” going into Sunday’s vote? Don’t believe it.
