The Gospel According to Nancy: No Borders, Kill Babies

Tucker Carlson pointed out a few days ago how the already insufferable leader of the Congressional Democrats has recently been “ordained….an archbishop in the church of progressive sanctimony.” For a while now, Nancy Pelosi’s been the country’s expert on morality (e.g., border wall: immoral; abortion on demand: moral). She’s now taken to telling the country how much she prays, and she’s urging others to do it, too – at least that old sinner, Donald Trump. After last Thursday’s televised squabble in the Oval Office, Pelosi shared with reporters how she told Trump she was praying for him and urged the president (whom she also called a “skunk” while ridiculing his manhood) to accept the Democrats’ budget proposal with no funding for a border wall. “In fact,” she said with stomach-turning piety, “I asked him to pray over it.”

When a smug person ends an argument by telling you to “pray over it,” she’s really saying, “Ask God. He knows I’m right!”

Summarizing her and Chuck Schumer’s meeting with Trump, she told the media, “I myself thought we should open the meeting with a prayer, which I did. I told him about King Solomon, when he was to become king of the Jews, he prayed to God, he said: ‘I need you to give me great understanding and wisdom, Lord.'”

King Solomon is Pelosi’s favorite Bible character, especially because he proposed solving a problem by cutting a baby in half.

Now Sister Nancy’s praying for Trump to keep the government open so federal employees can finish their Christmas shopping.

It’s an axiom that if a conservative says his faith informs his political decisions, he’ll be condemned for establishing a state religion, while liberals get to veer back and forth over the church-state centerline as freely as those motorists who love to text while driving. Right now the liberal media are applauding the way Pelosi “schooled President Donald Trump about the Bible,” but it’s not clear why. It’s not as if they’re suddenly in favor of anyone being schooled in the Bible, especially anyone in a public classroom.

Pelosi never bats an eye without a political motive. This Saint Nancy act might be her attempt to occupy the spiritual high ground that, obviously, Donald Trump has shown no interest in occupying himself. Pelosi wouldn’t dare try this with a president like George W. Bush, who, while he didn’t boast about his piety on TV, was recognized as genuine in his Christian faith – prompting the left’s usual reaction: Ross Douthat wrote in 2006 that “the fear of theocracy has become a defining panic of the Bush era.”

Theology was less of an issue for liberals during the Obama years; he was their messiah, and they just worshiped him. Meantime, Obama conspicuously dissed orthodox Christians with everything from calculated snubs and criticism to gratuitously tormenting the Little Sisters of the Poor, all the while devotedly celebrating the unblemished virtues of Islam. In 2015, Hillary bluntly stated that “[d]eep-seated … religious beliefs … have to be changed” to accommodate the unlimited abortion license. Then, last year, Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez said it is “not negotiable” that “[e]very Democrat” support abortion. Pelosi tried to mitigate Perez’s remarks by saying “of course” there’s room for pro-lifers in the Democratic Party, but try to find one who’s not actually voting Perez-style.

This year, Pelosi watched the Democrats lurch wildly to the extreme left. For decades before that, they were trusted allies in the left’s war on conventional morality and religion (except Islam!) for being repressive, patriarchal, and counterrevolutionary. It may be that, alarmed that the Democrat brand has become too materialistic, amoral, and atheist, she thinks she can give it religion. Maybe she can draw an unfavorable comparison between the reprobate and undisciplined Donald Trump and herself: the “ardent, practicing Catholic,” who exhorts the President to beg for “the great understanding and wisdom” that she (and Chuck Schumer?) have already been granted by God. Haven’t Republicans marched under the banner of morality and Christian values long enough? Now that they’ve elected the unholy Trump, why can’t the Democrats seize that banner for themselves?
