Dissident Catholic of the Year 2008



Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives

There were people who thought Speaker Pelosi should have received the 2008 Dissident Catholic of the Year award. I waited; praying she'd either revert or knowing she'd get worse.

Anyway, Speaker Pelosi's howlingly misguided attempt at justifying abortion by misusing the writings of St. Augustine on a national T.V. program earned her this years award.

What is really scary, besides the fact that Speaker Pelosi and many of her ilk truly believe what she said is adequate justification for their pro-death positions, is that Catholics who only learn their Faith from the media probably think every thing she said is true.

Given the makeup of President-elect Obama's Cabinet and his appointees thus far, I fear the competition for this award next year will be fierce. Pray.

Definitely a good pick for this dishonor, Cathy. Joe Biden would have been a good choice as well, with Caroline Kennedy becoming a serious contender in next year's repudiation.

I'd give Doug Kmiec a holler for this one too.

It reminds me of the new National Anthem, as a certain Mormon radio host on Fox News has mentioned on his show.

It's time to stand for it!

Let's not forget Kerry Kennedy although the choice of Pelosi is the right one!
