First Pelosi, Chapter One, Verse One

For those of you who like scripture to conform to what you believe instead of the other way around, please open your Democrat bibles to chapter one, verse one in the Book of First Pelosi.

It is reported that Nancy Pelosi is fond of quoting a particular passage of Scripture. The quote, however, does not appear in the Bible and is "fictional," according to biblical scholars.

In her April 22 Earth Day news release, Pelosi said, "The Bible tells us in the Old Testament, 'To minister to the needs of God's creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.' On this Earth Day, and every day, let us pledge to our children, and our children's children, that they will have clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and the opportunity to experience the wonders of nature."

Cybercast News Service repeatedly queried the speaker's office for two days to determine where the alleged Bible quote is found. Thus far, no one has responded and they probably won't because "It is not in the Bible," says Claude Mariottini, a professor of Old Testament at Northern Baptist Theological Seminary. "There is nothing that even approximates that."

John J. Collins, the Holmes professor of Old Testament criticism and interpretation at Yale Divinity School, said he is totally unfamiliar with Pelosi's quotation.

"(It's) not one that I recognize," Collins told Cybercast News Service. "I assume that she means this is a paraphrase. But it wouldn't be a close paraphrase to anything I know of."

"The quote does not exist in the Old Testament, neither in the New Testament," said the Rev. Andreas Hock, a doctor of Scripture who teaches in the Roman Catholic archdiocese of Denver's St. John Vianney Seminary.

"Even in pieces or bits, (it) cannot be found in the Old Testament," he added.

Pelosi has quoted this fake piece of scripture many times before.

Yet, the Democrats wonder why religious people doubt their sincerity and integrity when they speak of faith. They cannot understand why people question the beliefs of someone who would sit under under a pastor preaching bitterness and hate instead of grace and forgiveness. They think by reading polls, they will learn religion.
