Pelosi assists in Holy Week foot-washing ritual

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco.

Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship."

The Democratic leader's ceremony coincides with Pope Francis' similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week. As he did last year, the pope broke with the tradition of washing only priests' feet during the Mass for the Last Supper - this time, washing the feet of disabled people.

More showboating from Pelosi.

Since the Catholic Church won't let her get a photo op like this, she trots over to the Episcopalians who are only too accommodating for the two dozen or so congregants who attend their services.

And, of course, she politicizes the occasion.

Only in a place like San Francisco would a nag like Pelosi be taken seriously.

Liberals spend 363 days a year fighting tooth and nail against Christianity, and then two or three days a year they become religious. Easter and Christmas, suddenly all Liberals love religion.
 
Nancy Pelosi should go to hell. I don't know that God is taking votes, by my vote goes that she should marry Harry Reid, and they both go to where they belong.
