Nancy Pelosi Continues to Quote Made-Up Bible Verse

Published

on

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who calls herself a Catholic, continually quotes her favorite “Bible verse” to connect with the Christian electorate – unfortunately, that verse doesn’t exist.

“Years ago, to support a push for global warming legislation, she said in an Earth Day press release: “The Bible tells us in the Old Testament, ‘To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us,‘”according to Fox News.  The Speaker has quoted this “Bible verse” from the House floor about 11 times since 2002.

Pelosi’s favorite “verse”, she admits, she can’t find in the Bible. But, she quotes it all the time so that’s basically the same thing. In a conference for Christian Colleges and Universities (what credibility does she have to speak there?) Madame Speaker stated:

“I can’t find it in the Bible but I quote it all the time, and I keep reading and reading the Bible. I know it is there someplace. It’s supposed to be in Isaiah, but I heard a bishop say to minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.”

“It’s in there somewhere in some words or another, but certainly the spirit of it is there,”

She does realize that just because a bishop said it, doesn’t mean it’s in the Bible, right?

Sure, it’s a good little saying – but there are plenty of those not in the Bible. The closest reference to this verse comes from Proverbs 14:31, “Those who oppress the poor insult their Maker, but those who are kind to the needy honor Him.” Notice, this somewhat similar verse comes from Proverbs – not Isaiah.

Sure, this Biblical misreference could have been a mere accident that she made in confused state. But it has been going on for 19 years. The misquote is simply indication that Speaker Pelosi has no clue what is in the Bible; as if her outspoken views on abortion are not evidence enough of that. Perhaps Nancy Pelosi should take a glance at the Bible instead of making up verses that sound nice – might do her some good.

SICK: American Icon Plymouth Rock Vandalized, Spray-Painted in Massachusetts

It’s likely the vandalism is an anti-American hate crime.

Published

on

An icon of American heritage and civilization, Plymouth Rock, was found vandalized and spray-painted upon Monday morning by criminals at its namesake in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Plymouth Rock symbolizes the first arrival of the pilgrims from England in North America in 1620 A.D. The vandalism was found just weeks before a ceremony intended to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the pilgrim’s arrival in Massachusetts.

The large boulder is marked with the characters ‘1620’ to symbolize the pilgrims’ arrival. The rock was the first sight of those who disembarked from the Mayflower in the New World.

It’s unclear what the red spray-paint on the rock is intended to convey, but there’s a strong possibility the vandalism is motivated by hatred towards the icon of American culture.

In addition to the rock, the spray-paint vandals also targeted a nearby statue intended to commemorate the first pilgrims to arrive in North America.

It’s also noteworthy that the vandalism was found on President’s Day, suggesting a further possibility of anti-American hatred as a motivation.

400th anniversary celebrations of the pilgrims’ arrival are scheduled for April, and to this day are a point of pride for many of their descendants who live in Massachusetts.

The director of a Plymouth cultural and tourism agency, Lea Filson, expressed her disappointment to see the icon of America so disrespected.

“Seeing this type of disrespect for the historic reminders of the Mayflower story is both sad and unsettling. The outpouring of concern and anger over the incident has been a positive ending to a thoughtless gesture.”

The town of Plymouth has already removed the vandalism from the rock, and local police are investigating to locate the culprits.
