I've been sick all week and haven't really had the chance to blog until now - and boy, did I miss a great week!
1) Nancy Pelosi gets to meet the Pope?!?
My first issue with this is the fact that I don't get to meet the Pope and Pelosi does. The Pope tried to convince Pelosi that the Church teaches killing babies is wrong...but it seems the message fell on deaf ears. Pelosi is convinced that she knows more about Catholic doctrine than the Pope, apparently. At least she's heard about the evil of abortion from the Pope himself. Maybe it will sink in later?
Does Pelosi even count as a Catholic anymore??
2) Apparently, she does.
The Archbishop of her home parish in San Francisco as been trying to meet with Pelosi for quite some time. One of the reasons her Pope visit was so initially irksome concerned her statements about being too busy to meet with her own bishop. Of course, even if I were too busy to meet with Alfie over in New Orleans - I would cancel EVERYTHING to meet His Holyness. No doubt about that.
Of course, those reports are all wrong. Pelosi has in fact met with her Archbishop...and the meeting has been spectacularly analyzed over at American Papist.
3) My favorite thing in the world is happening over in North Dakota.
Babies are people too! And finally a state in the union is recognizing this (obvious) fact in law. At least, their House of Representatives is - the Senate votes on the matter in a few weeks. 15 other states are in the process of pursuing similar legislation.
My hope for this week is the passage of this law in North Dakota and in other states. It is essential to the pro-life cause. It will change the abortion debate forever. Please remember to pray for those voting and for those whose lives depend on those votes.
