The Speaker seems to throw the weight of her Catholicism behind her judgment that there is nothing much wrong with depicting a “leather” Last Supper.  From the California Daily Catholic:

Following controversy over San Francisco’s Folsom Street Fair and its lewd, profane advertisements, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has faced strident criticism for refusing to condemn the event and its publicity.

The Folsom Street Fair, a homosexual festival of hedonism that was held on Sunday, Sept. 30, receives some taxpayer funding and is co-sponsored by the Miller Brewing Company. It was advertised using a mocking re-creation of Leonardo da Vinci’s painting The Last Supper, with costumed sadomasochists taking the place of Christ and His Disciples and sex toys on the table in front of them.

Concerned Women for America, the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, has spearheaded national opposition to the festival. Matt Barber, CWA’s policy director for cultural issues, assailed the event: “We have photographic evidence that the San Francisco government suspends indecency and child abuse laws for a day allowing fairgoers to parade the streets of San Francisco, fully nude, engaging in illegal public sex while tax-payer funded police stand by and do nothing. Children are allowed to — and do — attend this event and are exposed to this activity, which is illegal child abuse.”

Barber has called on California politicians to distance themselves from the festival, particularly the anti-Christian ad. But, said Barber, Pelosi responded with “a condescending and dismissive quip.”

Speaker Pelosi, a Democrat, represents the San Francisco area in the House of Representatives. Despite her pro-abortion and anti-family voting record, Pelosi insists she is a Catholic. According to various media accounts, her press secretary, Drew Hammill, responded to the request by CWA that Pelosi condemn the ad by saying, “As a Catholic, the speaker is confident that Christianity has not been harmed.”

This woman is two heartbeats away.
