Nancy Pelosi, Superstitious Know-Nothing

Did everyone else enjoy seeing Nancy Pelosi get smacked down for appealing to Medieval embryology to justify her support for legal abortion? Thought so. Well, you might also enjoy seeing Joseph Komonchak correct her (mis)interpretation of Augustine, who for his own part was apparently working from a mistaken translation of the relevant Scriptural passages. I really find nothing quite so entertaining as watching politicians trying to cover their Catholic bona fides by turning to high-brow Jesuitical speculation about when souls are implanted. Their aides must love to be assigned that sort of research …

P.S. By the way, did you hear what Augustine thought about women?
