« Day Two | Main | Day Three »

April 24, 2008

Hot Air, Michelle Malkin, and Gateway Pundit (and undoubtedly scores of others) are all over the story of Nancy Pelosi's made-up Bible verses, which she trots out when she's trying to convince us clingy rubes that Earth Day is a biblical imperative. To wit:

The Bible tells us in the Old Testament, ‘To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.’

This, from a woman whose main base of support consists of people who are extremely unlikely to read, much less obey, God's word.

Query: what other verses has she made up to support her stands on:

  • Abortion

  • Tax Increases

  • Gun Control

  • Tort Reform
or any other issue?

"Blessed are those who visualize world peace, for it is better to visualize peace than to actually go and make the peace."


Please make suggestions in the comments.

Update: This story got me thinking; I knew there was an appropriate real passage from the Bible that might address this topic. It took a while, but I found it, in Paul's letter to the Romans, chapter 1, verse 25:

They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator — who is forever praised. Amen.

That sounds precisely like what Pelosi is doing.

Be sure to thank you mom (and dad) for instilling the Bible in you from an early age.

I know it makes your mom proud fotr you to be able to use His book to refute those who challenge and/or change it to their liking.

Good work!!

I would suggest that Deuteronomy 4:1-4 is also quite applicable to our speaker of the house. I don't want to ruin the surprise, so I'll just link to it.
