Every so often the blatant hypocrisy and utter moral inconsistency of certain political figures in our country is more than I can take. Today I want to share with you the most recent case in point. I do not write this in order to indict any political party or person, but simply to point out how blind and irrational some people can be, especially when it comes to the issue of abortion.

In an article in USA Today on Friday, January 29, several people were objecting to the words of newly elected Republican Congresswoman from Georgia, Marjorie Taylor Greene, going so far as to insist that she resign from office only weeks after having begun her term. Again, I’m not here to defend or criticize Greene. I don’t know her. I’m not familiar with her political convictions. But I do object to the hypocritical way in which some are denouncing her.

In the case I have in mind, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested that Greene’s appointment to the House Education Committee was “absolutely appalling.” Here are Pelosi’s words:

“What could they be thinking? Or is thinking too generous a word for what they might be doing?”

To what is Pelosi referring? According to news reports, video footage was released showing Greene “appearing to heckle a teen survivor of a deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida” (that was Pelosi’s interpretation of the event). I don’t know if the charge is accurate. If it is, there is no excuse for Greene’s behavior and she should apologize. But so, too, should Pelosi for this next comment:

“Assigning her to the Education Committee when she has mocked the killing of little children,” said Pelosi, is appalling.

As I said, I don’t know if Greene truly “mocked” the killing of little children, but I find it hard to believe. But even more unbelievable is that Nancy Pelosi would have the unmitigated gall to accuse someone else of mocking the killing of little children. Pelosi has labored long and hard to endorse, encourage, and insist on the government funding of the torture, dismemberment, and slaughter of literally millions of “little children” in the womb. Yes, they are “children”! The fact that they are unborn does not reduce their humanity or render them fair game for wanton slaughter.

Oh, would that Nancy Pelosi and others like her might feel appalled at the killing of some 65,000,000 unborn children since the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision of 1973! Speaker Pelosi, please look in the mirror! Before you rage against Rep. Greene, look into your own soul and consider the unimaginable hypocrisy and moral inconsistency in denouncing the alleged verbal disregard for a living child by a U.S. Representative at the same time you energetically endorse the literal killing of untold millions of unborn children.

And again I will say, they are children. Those yet in the womb are not kumquats or bumblebees or spotted owls. They are human beings, with every imaginable right to life, tiny unborn children who have been created and shaped in the image of their Creator and have done nothing to warrant being treated with such inhumane savagery.

This will certainly not be the last time we witness the brazen hypocrisy and hard-hearted, calloused, disregard for human life in the womb, but it is certainly a case that we all need to hear and denounce.


While Nancy Pelosi's comments are hypocritical and morally inconsistent, we should not be surprised when non-believers act like non-believers. Greene's comments are equally hypocritical and different in my opinion. She is a known conspiracy theorist and subscribes to QAnon beliefs. She claims to be a Christian and believes the shootings at this and other schools were false flag events that never happened or were staged. I can't even imagine the level of anger and hurt I would feel if my own child had been murdered in a shooting and a "Christian" political leader mocked me. There is plenty of hypocrisy on both sides. We need to move to the center and hold both people accountable. If we just hold Pelosi accountable and fail to call Greene out our Christian witness and moral outrage is irrelevant.
I wish abortion wasn’t a political issue. It’s use in political conversations is for political gain. It’s overuse in religion is a cover for personal failure to research, and instead be spoon fed by Fox News.
Of course Jesus is in politics. We just don’t want politics to be in the body of Christ, because it’s divisive
Thanks Brother Sam,

Abortion, lying, strife, pride, one brother stirring up trouble and division among others. All these are an abomination to the Lord. To address these issues and the leaders ( by name if necessary) who foment them and spread the evil seed to others is not politics. King David did it in the Psalms all the time. Politics are just a fruit of the spiritual seed and bent of the culture. We must speak truth into the heart of the culture as salt. Not political salt. Good and evil salt. The biggest danger is not politics in the church although that is a danger to be avoided. It is the will and righteousness of God to be spoken and lived by the church that is not in the culture. Fear, according to the Scripture, is what keeps the body from being salt and light and a failure to be that doesn't make us more "attractive". It makes us smell bad to the Lord.
Nancy Pelosi is evil plan and simple. She is aiding the destruction of our country. I applaud Rep Greene. She has morals, a spine and calls a spade a spade. She is also against abortion. So here we have Pelosi spewing her garbage at a woman who deserves a medal for having the moral fiber to stand up for our Constitution and Bill of Rights AND believes in the Bible.
not quite....
SPURGEON BELIEVED that religion should be carried into politics.

“Every God-fearing man,” he wrote, “should give his vote with as much devotion as he prays.” On the other hand, Spurgeon felt politics should not invade religion. “Ministers do well to give their votes and to express their opinions for the guidance of the people,” he wrote, “but in proportion as the preaching becomes political and the pastor sinks the spiritual in the temporal, strength is lost and not gained.”
Thank you Sam.

Just saw this today, attributed to Spurgeon:

I often hear it said, "Do not bring religion into politics."
This is precisely where it ought to be brought, and set there before the face of men, as on a candlestick.
