The Word Became Flesh

Taken from Northern Kentucky Right To Life Newsletter Vol. 40, No. 2 April 2011

U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D) (Speaker of the U.S. House until her party was overwhelmingly turned out by the voters last November) made an interesting remark in a press briefing at a Catholic Community Conference on Capitol Hill, where she said that her favorite word was “the word, as in the Word made flesh.” She added that people have to give voice to “what that means in terms of public policy that would be in keeping with the values of the Word.”

Her remark led to a very embarrassing question put to her then at a later press briefing by CNS News reporter Jane McGrath: “So, when was the Word made flesh? Was it at the Annunciation, when Jesus was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, as the Creator says, or was it at the Nativity when He was born of the Virgin Mary? And when did the Word get the right to life?” Pelosi’s evasive answer to her obvious hypocritical position favoring the destruction of unborn children was that the question just put to her is one that “we talk about in church, and that’s where I’d like to talk about that.”
