Nancy Pelosi: Gospel Compels Us To Let Federal Prisoners Out Because Of Coronavirus
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is pitching to let federal prisoners out of prison because of the coronavirus.
.@SpeakerPelosi calls for release of federal prisoners: “In our caucus, we are very devoted to the Gospel of Matthew; ‘When I was hungry, you fed me, when I was homeless, you sheltered me, when I was imprisoned, you visited me.’ And so this for us is a part of our value system.” pic.twitter.com/GGN7F6llQU

The “Gospel of Matthew” is “part of their caucus” and compels it, as she told MSNBC’s, Joy Reid.
Nancy Pelosi: “In our caucus, we are very devoted to the Gospel of Matthew; ‘When I was hungry, you fed me, when I was homeless, you sheltered me, when I was imprisoned, you visited me.’ And so this for us is a part of our value system.”
In Matthew Jesus speaks of people being put in jail and implies that it’s just:
Matthew 5:25–26: “…If someone brings a lawsuit against you and takes you to court, settle the dispute while there is time before you get to court. Once you are there, you will be turned over to the judge, who will hand you over to the police, and you will be put in jail. There you will stay, I tell you until you pay the last penny of your fine…”
In the middle of a global pandemic, where law abiding citizens are in government enforced lock-down, @SpeakerPelosi, a politician for 30+ years, decides now is a good time to deal with justice reform and freeing criminals!
All while quoting Matthew!
But it’s not political.

I really hate when the democrats want to look good they suddenly turn everything into a scripture passage yet at the same time deny our religious rights to each of us
