Nancy Pelosi Is A Godless Witch

Pelosi defends refusal to put "God" on flag certificates

When 17-year-old Andrew Larochelle of Dayton, Ohio, crafted a plan to send his grandfather the gift of a flag that had flown over the U.S. Capitol, he never thought his sentiments about "God, country and family" would be questioned.

The Eagle Scout was surprised, however, when the personal inscription he requested attached to a flag he purchased from the U.S. Capitol was censored. The teen said he wrote, "In honor of my grandfather Marcel Larochelle, and his dedication and love of God, country and family."

The flag flew on Sept. 11, Marcel Larochelle's birthday. But when Andrew finally received the flag in the mail on Sept. 30, "God" was taken out of his note.

"I was shocked that the word 'God' would be taken off a personal message from my son to his grandfather," Andrew's father, Paul Larochelle, told FOX News.



The family contacted Rep. Michael Turner, R-Ohio, who had sought to fulfill the flag request. Turner requested an explanation for the omission from the Architect of the Capitol, the office responsible for flying American flags momentarily over the Capitol and then sending them to constituents who request them, all for a fee of $9.

Turner said he was told that AoC rules do not allow religious expressions on flag certificates.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has defended the omission made by acting Architect Stephen T. Ayers, and said she has no plans to change the existing rules.

House Republicans, however, have a different take. They say the Capitol has many religious expressions and Congress begins each day with a prayer. They want new rules allowing religious expressions on flag certificates. They also note that the message wasn't written by Congress but by a private citizen to another private citizen.

"This practice, which overturns a longstanding and long cherished congressional tradition, has rightly drawn outrage from the American people, who have grown weary of endless attempts by politicians and bureaucrats to bar the word God and even the most tacit references to faith from our public institutions," House Minority Leader John Boehner wrote in a letter to Pelosi.

Boehner said as speaker, Pelosi can instruct the acting Architect of the Capitol to set aside the written policy of his predecessor and restore the practice of including God's name.

To compromise, Rep. Robert A. Brady, chairman of the House Administration Committee, which oversees the Architect of the Capitol, has suggested allowing a uniform certificate of authenticity and then giving each congressional office latitude to handle personal inscriptions. Turner has said he is considering legislation to repeal the AoC rule.

What the hell? So now according to Pelosi "God" Is Offensive. The Eagle Scout should have had anything he wanted put on his Certificate. This is mind blowing. FIRE THE ARCHITECT!!! Bring this issue to the House Floor!! Before you know it the Democrats will have GOD taken out of everything we believe in, in this Country. This is absurd. Call Peliosi's office and tell her what YOU think
(202) 225-0100. No wonder Congress is at it's lowest approval rating in history.

UPDATE:

GOD Back On Flag Certificates

Oh we know Nancy Pelosi didnt want to get caught up in this battle.

I don't know how we keep letting the secular progressives get away with this kind of thing. God is part and parcel of the history of this nation and for them to try and deny or ignore that is just plain offensive to most Americans. Remember all of this when it's time to pull the lever, punch out chads or push the buttons on a Diebold machine this next election.

I don't agree with Pelosi here. Why are liberals always coming down against Christians?

Isn't there more important things going on in the world worth discussing? You must be running out of material. Let's talk about Hillary's socialists healthcare agenda or something with some meat.

This should be a wake up call for our single issue voting pro-life friends.

Bad enough we have Pelosi defiling the U.S. Capitol, if Hillary is President this kind of stuff will be a hundred times worse.

Did anyone ever explain to these single issue loons that principle has to be leavened with common sense?

Jenn,

Before we know it the Democrats will demand printing new money excluding "In God We Trust"

I hope the Republicans dont sit out this next election, and I hope they realize the HUGE mistake they made by sitting out this last one, maybe they will get off thier patooties and get out there and vote this next time around.


Danny,

I dont know why they are alway's coming down on Christians but I know one thing, THEY HAVE TO BE STOPPED!



Anon,

Give me time, I will get to HillaryCare soon lol

Right now I am infuriated with this Flag Certificate thing. This has meat trust me!


Mike,

I am beginning to believe you can explain your point till you are blue in the face to these loons and they still wont get it.

Marie, we are on the same wavelength. I posted about the same thing today. It infuriates me! Always On Watch made the comment at my place that "God" would probably be put back in the cirtificates and that "Allah is Great" would probably be allowed too. It wouldn't surprise me a bit!

In addition regarding Anon's comment, this is important to anyone who believes in God!

DISGUSTING!!!! I'll tell you what offends me....Nancy Pelosi's name being ANYWHERE in Congress!

And some in the GOP want to concede 2008 to let the Moronocrats screw up so bad with the Presidency and the Congress so that it will lead to a GOP landslide in 2010 and 2012 ?

Two years will not only be disasterous for the country but would make changes that may never be able to be reversed!

BTW, added a new feature to the cartoon gallery. I value yur opinion and would like to get feedback from you! Thanks

Excuse me for injecting a bit of sanity here, but Nancy Pelosi is a practicing, devout Catholic. Of course, if you think Catholics are "godless" then that's another topic for discussion.

And I read this story, which differs from what is posted above:

"The boy had asked that the certificate read: ``this flag was flown in honor of Marcel Larochelle, my grandfather, for his dedication and love of God, country and family.''

But the Architect excised ``God'' from the inscription, saying it violated a policy, set in 2003, banning religious and political expressions on the certificates.

Lawmakers, led by Republicans, have since demanded that policy be changed.

Rep. Dan Burton, R-Ind., said in a floor speech that Ayers should be removed from office. ``I can't imagine anybody wanting to take God out of a certificate for a Boy Scout or an Explorer Scout or anybody else in scouting because they wanted to honor their grandfather.''

The practice, House Republican leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, wrote in a letter Wednesday to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., ``has rightly drawn outrage from the American people, who have grown weary of endless attempts by politicians and bureaucrats to bar the word God and even the most tacit references to faith from our public institutions.''

The flag dispute led off questioning at Pelosi's weekly news conference Thursday. ``I don't think the Architect's office should be in the role of censoring what members want to say,'' she said.

and this:

Asked about the issue today at a press luncheon, Pelosi said the architect's policy was adopted because "people were asking for statements that not only were religious, beyond using the word God, but political as well." She said the official policy is to send a certificate that lists nothing beyond the date the flag flew over the Capitol and the name of its recipient. She said that members of Congress who request flags on behalf of constituents can "add whatever they wish" to the certificates, "whether it is a political statement or a religious statement."

"It's not about being anti-religion," Pelosi said, noting that each day in the Capitol starts with a prayer. "It is just about what the architect thought was appropriate for him to proclaim in a certificate."

Godless witch?

What would you think of someone who said that about you because they were p.o.'d about some procedural action.

Joanne, it's the same old story though. No one wants to take responsibilty for some bureacratic interpretation of a rule, that's how it works in DC and the rest of the government in fact. It sounded like the Architect took it upon himself to interpret the rule in his own way. Do you think we'll ever get the answer? No, of course not that's the way the system is designed. Just point the funger at someone else.

It was finally brought to the attention of Nancy Pelosi and she balked at first about changing it but then she had to relent to the pressure.

Is Nancy Pelosi a practicing and devout Catholic? She claims to be. I can't say I know much about her relationship with God. I can't say I know that much about the Roman Church either. I liked Pope John Paul and Mother Theresa.The Sistine Chapel is beautiful.Didn't Martin Luther have an argument with the Pope a few years back? Yeah well, stuff happens.

I do know one thing about Nancy Pelosi, she has little control of the House of Representatives and that's probably a good thing.

Hi Marie,

I hope that you are alright, a bit worried about you, hope that you are well and feeling ok.

Jenn,

I agree on the responsibility bit. No one will take responsibility. And instead of calling Pelosi a godless witch, a better and more accurate epithet would have been balless.

She certainly is that.

PS. I hope Marie is okay, too. I wouldn't want anything to interfere with her hitting me over the head now and again.

Marie, if you lived nearby, I'd make you a pot of chicken soup. Also my famous "Everyday Cocoa Cake."

Hope all's well.

I've said this before and I'll say it again:

The three things a new communist government does as a priority are

1. Take the guns away from the people.

2. Squelch freedom of dissenting speech.

3. Render G-d "off limits" -- belief in Him would come between the people and the state.

Sounds a lot like today's Democrats, doesn't it?

Gayle,

I have noticed you and I think ALOT alike :-) Allah pfft!

I think Anon is wanting to get down to the nitty gritty with Hillary lol, I think there is plenty of time to nail Hillary before the election.

I think the same, this is important to anyone who believes in GOD, and who knows how many of these certificates people got excluding "God", and no one ever said anything about it till now.



Ken,

I know how much you cant stand Pelosi lol, neither can I.

I had to take a break for a few days but will be over to your place soon.



Wild Phil,

Now, Now, Pelosi will meet GOD soon enough without any help from us lol. I have noticed that the Governement is watching all our blogs so (I have to be somewhat nice lol)
