Pelosi Gets a Stern Talking-To

Nancy Pelosi, as part of a congressional delegation to Europe, met briefly with the Pope today. It seems to me like she was looking for a photo-op, but it seems that she got more than that. From Vatican Radio:
Following the General Audience the Holy Father briefly greeted Mrs Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, together with her entourage.

His Holiness took the opportunity to speak of the requirements of the natural moral law and the Church’s consistent teaching on the dignity of human life from conception to natural death which enjoin all Catholics, and especially legislators, jurists and those responsible for the common good of society, to work in cooperation with all men and women of good will in creating a just system of laws capable of protecting human life at all stages of its development.

Good for you, Papa! Not that it will do any good in the face of such obstinately evil views, but with rebuke and prayer, perhaps she will come to her senses eventually.
