Pope Francis has made a clear statement on abortion in the wake of a vist from Nancy Pelosi last weekend (Saturday, 9 October).
Apparently His Holiness was not particularly bowled over by our Nancy’s views on abortion.
The Holy Father said “I have been very clear — [abortion] is homicide and it is not licit to become complicit,” (Did you note the rhyme? – ‘ilicit’, ‘complicit’. Very good Your Holiness!)
Ms Pelosi (Speaker of the US House of Representative) did, however, present Pope Francis (Speaker of the House of God) with a ceramic bowl.
Unconfirmed reports allege that during the presentation someone was heard to say “What a crock!”. It is unclear whether this was a reference to the bowl or to Ms Pelosi’s answer to a question regarding abortion. The Vatican has declined to comment.
Nancy P we were depending on you to bring the Pope into the abortionist fold. You have to do better!
