PRO-ABORTION CATHOLICS AND COMMUNION (Part III)

_____________________________________

Responding to Nancy Pelosi (specifically, her comment that "I believe that my position on choice is one that is consistent with my Catholic upbringing, which said that every person has a free will and has the responsibility to live their lives in a way that they would have to account for in the end"), James Taranto of OpinionJournal.com makes a rather incisive obervation:
Pelosi's faith is between her and God, but does she really think that the church's moral teachings amount to nothing more than "every person has a free will and has the responsibility to live their lives in a way that they would have to account for in the end"? Even devil worshipers have free will and responsibility and have to account for the way they live. Does that make them Catholics by Pelosi's lights?
Heh.
