At an “End Child Poverty” event in Los Angeles on Sunday, House Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi turned pastor once again to inform everyone who disagrees with her that they are doing Christianity wrong.
“This is Palm Sunday,” Pelosi said in a video published at The American Mirror. “When the Gospel of Matthew — what you have done for the least of my brethren, you did for me — was something that Christ said in Holy Week, Tuesday of Holy Week.”
“So as we go into Holy Week,” she continued, “if we are people of faith, or people of morals — of morality — let us understand what that challenge is on this Palm Sunday to do the Lord’s work.”
Last month after President Trump announced his energy plan, Pelosi called it “really sinful to be so degrading of God’s creation.” Her words were similar on Sunday, with a hefty helping of doubt of the Christian faith of anyone opposed to Democratic policies like Obamacare:
“When we minister to the needs of God’s creation, that is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the god who made us.
“So, if these people of such faith in our country truly are, and in our state, they will recognize our obligation to our children.”
Continuing her sermon of sorts, Pastor Pelosi invoked a quote she heard about from an African bishop, which stated: “When hopefully one day, happily, I leave this earth, and go to meet my master, when I come before the creator, he will say to me, show me your wounds. And if I say, ‘Lord, I have no wounds,’ he will say, ‘Was nothing worth fighting for?’”
“Well, these fights are fights worth fighting for,” Pelosi said to the crowd. “People will have their complaints, but we will have our wounds, and we will have our successes.”
At last we checked, the only wounds that matter in theological terms were the ones suffered by Christ on the cross, which covered the sin of man, but Pelosi’s “wounds” apparently have even more saving power.
