Quote of the Day: Pelosi's theology

Today's quote of the day comes from Oregon blogger Gullyborg, regarding Nancy Pelosi's expertise on the question of when life begins:

By now you may have heard that Nancy Pelosi stuck her foot in it with some ridiculous comments about how the Catholic Church views the question "when does life begin?"

She decided that Saint Augustine pronounced life begins at three months. Even though there is no evidence to suggest he ever said or wrote this . . .

Honestly, though, the simple answer to the question, from a purely Catholic point of view, should be "conception." After all, Catholics celebrate the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, not the "feast of the immaculate second trimester."

    Thank you. I'm from California and a Catholic and deeply ashamed of Nancy Pelosi. Actually I was deeply ashamed of her long before her adventures on Meet the Press. The woman is a twit, but I pray for her soul.
