    it is sad to know that an elected official would say [lie] just for self or political gain.

    I do not understand how any true Catholic can vote for a candidate who supports abortion. This is the most important issue facing our great country and it is about time we recognize it. It is one thing to say you oppose abortion, but to actually back it up by voting only for a pro-life candidate is another. And in case you are uninformed of your candidates stance I will make it clear for you. McCain = pro-life and Obama = pro-murder. Make the right choice.

    I feel so sorry for Nancy Pelosi.
    She wants so badly to stay stuck in the world of lies and deception about the right to life and when human life begins,just so she can continue to appeal to a certain segment of society that also is deceived about what true freedom really is. Nancy along with so many others, have been blinded to the point that she/they can not or chooses not to see the Truth, which is the author of LIFE. JESUS
    All life is sacred from the moment of conception to natural death.

    We must pray for Nancy Pelosi's conversion as well as all citizens to be converted to the Truth which can only be found in Christ life. If we are ever going to reverse the evil of abortion, we must pray for conversions of hearts for the leaders, especially those who claim to be Catholic and bring such shame and disgrace to Jesus by not living out the Truth of the teachings of the Holy Catholic Church.

    May God shower His mercy and love upon Nancy Pelosi and may she be given the grace of conversion.

    Nancy Pelosi is a classic case of a poorly educated Catholic. She lacks formation, integrity, honesty and above all LOVE for others. Let God be her judge and may He have mercy on her for the killing for millions of innocent babies and the destruction of so many women's hearts.

    Nancy Pelosi's outrageous statements show her to be an artist at rationalization. Instead of describing herself as an "ardent Catholic", the term "Cafeteria Catholic" would be more accurate. The Bishops must take a stand. We see more and more so-called "Catholic" politicians speaking out of both sides of their mouths while the Bishops look the other way. This is scandalous and dangerous.

    How she can says "as an ardent Catholic" what Kind of Catholic is this woman?

    Does she belongs to the New Catholic Church, that Hugo Chavez created in Venezuela?

    I pray the Catholic Church to excommunicated her "IMMEDIATELY" and every single Politician that offends the Church in such manner.

    Very simple to solve this issue.

    Let's all the Catholic get together and
    VOTE-HER-OUT from her position.

    She is NOT capable, to have a rational mind, she probably FAILED Biology 101, and most definitely she is NOT capable to rule in Today's Rational Society in the Greatest Nation of the World.

    PLEASE Let's start collecting Firms to VOTE-HER- OUT.

    I'm shocked that Cardinal Egan is shocked! This isn't some new revelation by the Speaker. She's been saying this quite openly and defiantly for some time now. Why are the Bishops shocked? It is the Bishops who continue to shock us with their twisted reasoning for allowing her to continue to receive the Eucharist.

    The next logical conclusion should be that any catholic who knowingly votes for a candidate who is pro-choice (pro-abortion)
    would be guilty of a grave sin and has a moral obligation to know a candidates stand on abortion prior to voting.

    The past century has seen the slaughter of hundreds of millions of the unborn and the rationalization of this act in terms of "mercy", "choice", "freedom", "convenience" and, in the case of Speaker Pelosi, "ambiguity" ("...the doctors of the church have not been able to make that definition . . . St. Augustine said at three months. We don't know."

    It has come time for the Church, namely our Holy Father, the Pope, to sit in the Chair of Saint Peter and declare with the voice of infallibility once and for all what the doctrine of the Church is. To lift any doubt in anyone’s mind, whether real or self-made, as to what the teach is and that it is unquestionable.
