Democrats have insisted that Nancy Pelosi is a great politician, something that I’ve often disagreed with. Now that her congressional career is winding to a halt, Speaker Pelosi appears to want to become a biblical theologian. In reality, she’s just another Democrat politician that won’t hesitate to use the Bible for political gain. Frankly, that practice is disgusting to real Christians.

According to the article, Pelosi tweeted “It should be a sign to us that today’s Catholic Gospel reading is the Good Samaritan, where Jesus teaches us to love our neighbors as ourselves and treat them with mercy. Trump’s ICE raids today tear families apart -the opposite of mercy.” While there’s no doubt that Jesus is a loving God, it’s apparent that holiness is important to the Lord, too. According to the search I did through BibleGateway.com, the word holy is used almost 600 times (576 times, to be precise) in the Bible.

I’d love hearing Pelosi explain how protecting criminal aliens is an act of holiness. Ms. Pelosi, do you really think that it’s holy to protect violent criminals from law enforcement? I’m betting that God doesn’t think that’s an act of holiness. I also searched the word justice. According to the same search engine, justice is used almost 200 times. One of those times, the word justice is used in the ‘Hebrew Hymnal’, aka the Book of Psalms, where it says “For the Lord loves justice, And does not forsake His saints; They are preserved forever, But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off.”

I’d prefer that Ms. Pelosi stick to being a politician rather than thinking of herself as a qualified theologian. It’s more than a little galling to hear Ms. Pelosi talking about morality when she’s the one who hasn’t lifted a finger legislatively to stop sex trafficking and the meth and opioid epidemics. I’m tired of Democrats like Pelosi cherry-pick their way through God’s Word, emphasizing God’s love but utterly ignoring other Godly traits like justice and loving order over chaos. The Democrats’ selective theology is a bit frustrating.
