Days after Maxine Waters questioned the patriotism of Donald Trump supporters, Nancy Pelosi is questioning the Christian faith of her political opponents.
Speaking to an “End Child Poverty” rally on Sunday in Los Angeles, the House Minority Leader called Obamacare “an act of worship.”
“This is Palm Sunday,” Pelosi said yesterday. “When the Gospel of Matthew — what you have done for the least of my brethren, you did for me — was something that Christ said in Holy Week, Tuesday of Holy Week.
“So as we go into Holy Week, if we are people of faith or people of morals, of morality, let us understand what that challenge is on this Palm Sunday to do the Lord’s work,” Pelosi said.
“When we minister to the needs of God’s creation, that is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the god who made us,” she said.
“So if these people of such faith in our country truly are, and in our state, they will recognize our obligation to our children,” Pelosi said.
Moments later, she criticized single payer health care protesters who were heckling her just feet from the stage.
“Single payer now!” they chanted as Pelosi spoke, briefly causing her to stop telling a story.
Talking about a quote on the wall of an African hospital, Pelosi said, “When hopefully one day happily I leave this earth, and go to meet my master, when I come before the creator, he will say to me, show me your wounds.
“And if I say, Lord, I have no wounds, he will say, was nothing worth fighting for?” she said as protesters held up signs.
“Well, these fights are fights worth fighting for,” Pelosi said as the protesters began to chant again.
“People will have their complaints, but we will have our wounds, and we will have our successes,” she said.
