Abortion-supporting Nancy Pelosi has invoked her Catholic faith in defense of releasing inmates from prison amid the coronavirus pandemic who “don’t really need to be there.”
When appearing on MSNBC, Pelosi was asked what is being done on behalf of “incarcerated people” who are vulnerable during the pandemc.
“In our caucus, we are very devoted to the Gospel of Matthew,” she responded.
“‘When I was hungry, you fed me, when I was homeless, you sheltered me, when I was imprisoned, you visited me,'” she continued.
“And so this for us is a part of our value system,” Pelosi explains.
“We will have language developed by the judiciary committee so there is some order and clarity so some people can leave who do not really need to be there,” she adds.
In Chapter 5, verse 25 and 26, the Gospel of Matthews justifies a sentence in jail: “If someone brings a lawsuit against you and takes you to court, settle the dispute while there is time before you get to court. Once you are there, you will be turned over to the judge, who will hand you over to the police, and you will be put in jail. There you will stay, I tell you until you pay the last penny of your fine.”

People quickly responded to Pelosi:
In the middle of a global pandemic, where law abiding citizens are in government enforced lock-down, @SpeakerPelosi, a politician for 30+ years, decides now is a good time to deal with justice reform and freeing criminals!
All while quoting Matthew!
But it’s not political.

I really hate when the democrats want to look good they suddenly turn everything into a scripture passage yet at the same time deny our religious rights to each of us

When I was hungry, you fed me with my neighbors forcefully taken earnings, when I was homeless, you sheltered me with my neighbors forcefully taken earnings. @SpeakerPelosi cannot justify her amoral & hedonistic worldview with a Biblical worldview; they conflict.
