Faith of Convenience

It must be nice to be a Catholic like Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, or pretty much any of the Kennedys, because their faith can justify just about anything:
CNSNews.com) — House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that her Catholic faith “compels” her to “be against discrimination of any kind” and thus for same-sex marriage.

A reporter asked Pelosi: “Many of the people that are opposed to gay marriage cite their religion as the reason why they’re opposed. You’re a Catholic that supports gay marriage. Do you believe that religion and the idea that you can support gay marriage can be separated? And how do you grapple with the idea that you support gay marriage as a Catholic?”

Pelosi responded: “My religion has, compels me — and I love it for it — to be against discrimination of any kind in our country, and I consider this a form of discrimination. I think it’s unconstitutional on top of that. ”
She uses the same twisted logic to justify abortion. Too bad most Catholic bishops are too gutless to call them on it.

Too bad we have to throw in the Episcopalians, ELCA (Lutheran), and some Presbyterians.

Seems an awful lot of Christians would rather please man than God.
