Nancy Pelosi visits the Vatican:
The Pope received Nancy Pelosi and her entourage briefly today after the general audience, reported a Vatican communiqué.
What the Pope said to Pelosi:
He "took the opportunity to speak of the requirements of the natural moral law and the Church's consistent teaching on the dignity of human life from conception to natural death," the Vatican reported afterward.
The Pontiff added that these teachings "enjoin all Catholics, and especially legislators, jurists and those responsible for the common good of society, to work in cooperation with all men and women of good will in creating a just system of laws capable of protecting human life at all stages of its development."
Seems pretty straight-forward, doesn't it?
Pelosi to the Pope:
In a statement today from Pelosi's office, she said that in the meeting she lauded "the Church's leadership in fighting poverty, hunger and global warming, as well as the Holy Father's dedication to religious freedom and his upcoming trip and message to Israel."
I'm sorry, did you say something about human life your Holiness? I really wasn't listening. Now, about this global warming thing...
