Nancy Pelosi and The Missing Conscience

In an interview with The Washington Post Nancy Pelosi defended her statement when she said that The Protect Life Act claimed that this piece of legislation would allow hospitals to “say to a woman, ‘I’m sorry you could die’ if you don’t get an abortion.” Then she goes onto to defend her outrageous and false characterization by saying those who disagree with my statement “may not like the language,” she said, “but the truth is what I said.  I’m a devout Catholic and I honor my faith and love it…but they (Catholics) have this conscience thing”

Why did she use the word "they"? Doesn't she consider herself Catholic?  She claims to be a "devout Catholic" but doesn't consider herself a Catholic much less a Catholic who has a conscience. It's interesting that she recognizes that she is an immoral person.  

It is obvious that Nancy Pelosi fails to meet the criteria required to be considered a morally, decent human being which recognizes the difference between right and wrong.  She claims to be a "devout Catholic" but fails to follow Catholic doctrines. 

Is it really possible for a Catholic to be "devout" but yet reject infallible teachings of the Church? 

Nancy Pelosi believes in forcing religious organizations, hospitals etc. to provide sterilizations and contraceptives under their health care plans even if that goes against Church doctrine. What kind of "devout Catholic" would force religious institutions and persons working at these places to violate their consciences? 

Nancy Pelosi's words and actions continue to cause grave scandal to the Church.  We need to pray for her conversion, so that she attains a conscience soon. It is extremely sad that she has lowered herself to such moral depravity.
