A telling symbol for this pontificate:
As Congress members rushed to touch Pope Francis after Thursday’s historic address on the House floor, Rep. Bob Brady reportedly made a beeline for the podium to swipe the Holy Father’s discarded water glass.
The Pennsylvania congressman immediately took a sip out of the glass and brought it back to his office, ABC News reported.
“The congressman is a Catholic and has immense respect for the Holy Father,” Rep. Brady’s Chief of Staff Stan White told ABC.
His office confirmed that Mr. Brady drank from the water and shared it with members of his staff and his wife, Debra Brady.
Rep. Brady “was immensely moved by the speech. He thought the Holy Father spoke to issues he cared deeply about … especially caring about the poor and the Holy Father’s concern about our environment,” Mr. White told ABC.
The congressman kept the remainder of the water and plans to sprinkle it on his grandchildren, Mr. White said.
Go here to read the rest. Do I really need to add that this Democrat doofus Congress Critter is a complete pro-abort?
Brady is pro-choice and voted against President Bush’s restrictions on funding to family planning groups in 2001. Over the years, he has supported minors’ abortion rights, voting in 2005 for the right for those under 18 years of age to obtain abortions across state lines without parental consent. He voted against the Stupak-Pitts Amendment, which prohibits health insurance companies from offering abortion coverage in a plan to any citizen. He opposed a proposal to prohibit federally funded abortion services. Over the past fifteen years, organizations such as the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws (NARAL), the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association, and Planned Parenthood rated him 100%.
The legacy of Pope Francis, in addition to a likely major schism, will be deranged leftists treating him like a rock star while spitting on core teachings of the Catholic Church.
