Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) politicized faith at a rally in Los Angeles on Sunday.
Pelosi used Christianity as her defense for Democratic proposals during a political rally about ending childhood poverty. Pelosi mentioned that it was Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week, which culminates with Easter the following Sunday.
“I didn’t know this until recently, that when the Gospel of Matthew, ‘what you have done for the least of my brethren, you did for me,’ was something that Christ said in Holy Week, Tuesday of Holy Week,” Pelosi said. “So as we go into Holy Week, as we’re people of faith, people of morals, of morality, let us understand what that challenge is on this Palm Sunday to do the Lord’s work.”
“It is a fact in not only our Catholic faith, our Christian faith, but in all religions, that when we minister to the needs of God’s creation, that is an act of worship,” Pelosi continued….
Pelosi had accused Republicans of “exploiting” religion in an interview during President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
Pelosi’s relationship with the Catholic Church is considered quite tense.
