Slate Magazine is notorious for its left-leaning “fact checking.”
But even they couldn’t protect Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi from this outrageous lie she has been spreading.
And you’ll never believe the lie that she has been saying about the Bible and Christianity.
Nancy Pelosi recently addressed a group of presidents from Christian colleges across the nation in Washington, D.C.
In her speech she shared her “favorite” Bible verse, saying “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.”
Her goal was to use the Bible to justify pushing her socialist plans.
Pelosi said the verse is “in there somewhere.”
However, her only problem is that no such verse exists throughout the entirety of the Bible.

Nancy Pelosi addressed a gathering of presidents of Christian colleges this week in Washington, where she thanked the evangelical community for its leadership on immigration and refugee policy reform. To this end, the speaker of the House quoted a favorite bit of biblical wisdom in her opening statement: “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.”
OK, actually, she said, it might not technically be from the Bible. “I can’t find it in the Bible, but I quote it all the time,” Pelosi said as she introduced the quote. “I keep reading and reading the Bible—I know it’s there someplace. It’s supposed to be in Isaiah. I heard a bishop say, ‘To minister to the needs of God’s creation … ’”
To clarify: It is not “there someplace.”
“The Pelosi passage is not in the Bible,” Will Kynes, an associate professor of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament at Whitworth University, told me by email.
Pelosi got one thing right: She does in fact “quote it all the time.” The earliest example I found comes from the Congressional Record in 2002, in a speech honoring a prominent Catholic priest in San Francisco who had recently died. “The Bible tells us that to minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship,” she said on the House floor. “To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.”
Slate did find that she was truthful about the fact that she quotes it “all the time.”
In fact, between 2002 and 2018, she quoted that fake verse 11 times in her Congressional Record.
This time in front of Christian college professors.
When even the liberal “fact checking” media can’t protect her, she can be sure that she has screwed up.
Sadly, her lie is more indicative of the leftists’ position on Christianity.
Democrats constantly “cite” the Bible to spin this narrative that Jesus was a socialist hippie, and that God is against the Border Wall.
They don’t actually care about true Christian beliefs and viewpoints.
Instead they just make up lies to try to dupe Christians into supporting their agenda.
Nancy Pelosi, and her fellow Democrats, would be hard pressed to find many Bible-believing Christians that fall for her false narrative.
And she would be better off not trying to cite a book she probably doesn’t believe in.
Maybe she could try the Qu’ran.
