I do not typically write about issues that are politically driven. There are many reasons why I refrain from doing so, but at times something will come along that at least deserves a quick note of address.
A couple of days ago Nancy Pelosi, in a speech supporting President Obama’s health reform, brought her faith into the mix. She said:
“Today is the feast of St. Joseph the Worker. It’s a day where we remember and pray to St.
Joseph to benefit the workers of America, and that’s exactly what our
health care bill will do.”
Two quick points of observation. I will leave the commentary to your own minds.
1. If a Republican had said this, I wonder what the response would have been. Where is the outrage of bringing prayer into the business of government health reform?
2. Friday the 19th wasn’t the feast of St. Joseph the Worker. That particular feast occurs on May 1st. Oops.
