Opinion| ICYMI| Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave a speech in front of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.
During the speech, Pelosi shared her favorite Bible quote… the only issue is that the quote the House Speaker shared is not actually a quote from the Bible.
During the speech’s opening statement, Pelosi said, “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.”
The Democrat did admit, however, that she wasn’t able to find the exact quote in the Bible. She insisted, “I quote it all the time. And I keep reading and reading the Bible. I know it’s there someplace. It’s supposed to be in Isaiah.” It’s not clear where the quote originated.
The Democrat attributed the quote to a “Bishop,” who she was unable to identify.
The Blaze reported that the Biblical quote that most closely relates to the “quote” that Pelosi shared is located in the Proverbs.
Will Kynes, an associate professor of Hebrew Bible at Whitworth University, told Slate the closest biblical analog to Pelosi’s quote is found in Proverbs 14:31, a book of the Bible known as being part of the Wisdom Literature. “Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God.”
Greg MaGee, a Taylor University associate professor, also said the verse from Proverbs is the closest to Pelosi’s.
This is not the first time Pelosi shared the quote. Pelosi used the phrase in an April, 21, 2018, Earth Day press release.
What a freaking moron!
