Pelosi Claims Dems Are ‘People of Faith’
PELOSI: "Well, thank you for asking that question because the cultural issue and especially when it comes to rural America, the isolation that some people feel there, plus they don’t think that Democrats are people of faith when the fact is that we are. And I say — this will be a little — not in keeping with the spirit of the day of unity but I say they pray on church on Sunday and then prey on people the rest of the week. And while we’re doing the Lord’s work by ministering to the needs of God’s creation, they are ignoring those needs which is to dishonor the God who made them. So we have to — we don’t wear our religion on our sleeve and maybe we should. We don’t wrap ourselves in the flag, but maybe we should, because we’re all, Democrats, Republicans, everyone loves our country, our people of faith. We don’t, as I say, exploit that because we don’t think you’re supposed to, but maybe we have to make it clearer."
