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:
“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.

Harvard Law School Planning Conference to Smear and Silence Homeschoolers
It seems doubtful the conference will feature parents’ rights advocates.
Harvard Law School is planning a conference on the topic of homeschooling, with speakers and content of the tenative June summit suggesting the event will be very negative towards the practice.
The Homeschooling Summit: Problems, Politics, and Prospects for Reform is planned for June 18-19th. The conference listing states that a focus of the conference will be to “discuss child rights in connection with homeschooling in the United States.”
Further investigation of the conference’s premise suggests it’s outright hostile to the notion of homeschooling entirely. One event scheduled for the second day of the conference is entitled “Concerns with Homeschooling.”
The Home School Legal Defense Association questioned what seemed to be the outright hostility to homeschooling that will be part of the event, pointing out the concerning public statements of some of the educators participating in the summit.
The pro-homeschooling rights group highlighted the anti-homeschooling track records of the event’s speakers.
Some, such as College of William and Mary law professor James Dwyer, have fundamentally questioned the rights of parents to homeschool their children. Dwyer has argued in law review article that “the claim that parents should have child-rearing rights—rather than simply being permitted to perform parental duties and to make certain decisions on a child’s behalf in accordance with the child’s rights—is inconsistent with principles deeply embedded in our law and morality.”
It almost seems anachronistic that the fixings of elite cultural liberalism are maintaining themselves in the midst of the national Chinese coronavirus epidemic, an event that has actually forced the American public and policy makers to focus on things that matter. This anti-homeschooling summit might end up being cancelled because of the coronavirus epidemic. But it any case, Harvard Law’s academic elites seem intent to question the rights of homeschoolers either way.
