Pope Sends Strong Message To Pelosi
Nancy Pelosi went to the Vatican to meet the pope and hoped to be welcomed with open arms, but that was not the case. Pelosi calls herself an "ardent catholic," but she has consistently been pro-abortion, something that goes against church teaching. Pelosi is desperately trying to gain favor with the church, but the pope reaffirmed the church's position on abortion and politicians who promote and support abortion. There was no photo of the meeting - something she was hoping for and could use for political gain - and the pope made it clear what was said in the meeting. Abortion goes against the natural moral law, which means that it is a moral truth that we can know by thinking about what is right and wrong. You don't have to be a catholic to know and follow natural moral law, it should be ingrained in every one of us. It should be pretty obvious. I hope this sends a strong message to those who think that they can justify going against serious moral teachings and still be in full communion with the church.
