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.
