Pelosi Uses Religion to Advance Liberal Agenda

During times of trials and tribulations, many people turn to Christ to help them through. It seems Sister — I mean Speaker of the House — Nancy Pelosi is no different.

With speculation brewing that Democrats are poised to lose big in the fall midterm elections and the balance of power at stake, is Nancy Pelosi turning to Jesus for political salvation?

Her recent religious revival started shortly after the passage of the healthcare bill. Tasked with selling the unpopular overhaul, Pelosi opted to appeal to a higher power for help. She asked members of the clergy to make the case to their congregations in support of her legislation, with little criticism from the secular media.

Then she urged Catholic leaders to "instruct" their parishioners to support immigration reforms, saying clerics should "play a very major role" in supporting her policies, something that would likely jeopardize their nonprofit status. However, at the same news conference, she also praised the group of religious sisters whose endorsement of the healthcare reform bill undercut the U.S. bishops' push for abortion funding restrictions.
