Pelosi's Hypocrisy


"I want you to speak about it (passing immigration reform legislation) from the pulpit", says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The above video illustrates the hypocrisy of the ruling class. I say that they are the ruling class, not because they have been given this distinction by the People, but because they seem to believe that they are above the law. With all the scrutiny of churches for promoting political causes by liberals, here have in the example of the queen of liberals one who is calling on churches to preach her position on a certain political issue. Its not that I would disagree with her that illegal immigration is an important issue (see this accompanying article for proof of that). It’s not that I don’t think that politics shouldn’t be discussed in churches (but watch it if you’re a 501(c)(3)). It’s just that somehow I don’t think Pelosi would use equivalent latitude to churches when their preachers are preaching against abortion (for "the dignity and worth of every person"), same-sex marriage or even the wars. What do you think? Is it time for Pelosi to retire?

Oh.

"It’s not that I don’t think that politics shouldn’t be discussed in churches..."

Oh.

My! What a lot of signficant, argument-breaking qualifiers you need to make an argument...
