House Speaker Nancy Pelosi only wants to use the Bible when it’s convenient for her.
Late Tuesday Night while speaking on the House floor Pelosi quoted a Bible verse to get lawmakers to pass a bill that would send over $40 dollars to Ukraine.
Pelosi was quoted saying “when you’re home thinking what is this all about, just think about, ‘When I was hungry, you fed me,’ in the Gospel of Matthew”.
Many Conservative voices weren’t fans of Pelosi’s attempt to use Scripture considering just last week she at rage at the thought Roe v. Wade would be overturned.
Here’s the moment she said it here:

Fox News dropped these details:
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was blasted by critics overnight following her speech late Tuesday on the House floor in which she quoted the Gospel of Matthew in order to shore up support for the $40 billion Ukraine aid bill that was later approved by the chamber.
“The brutality of Putin is not just what he’s doing in Ukraine, but the impact that it is having on food for the world. So when you’re home thinking what is this all about, just think about, ‘When I was hungry, you fed me,’ in the Gospel of Matthew,” Pelosi said.
Her comments came as part of a speech largely centered on what the massive amount of financial aid would do for the Ukrainians amid food shortages in the country due to the war with Russia, despite shortages being felt by Americans here at home.
Some critics slammed Pelosi’s reference to the Gospel by asking if she would apply that to other policy points, as others joked that “defense contractors” were the ones truly gaining from the aid bill.
“Will she recite bible verses in support of abortion?” asked radio host Lidia Curanaj.

The Daily Wire Got The Scoop Too:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi went biblical in urging passage of a $40 billion military and humanitarian aid package for Ukraine, a deal 57 Republicans said the deficit-addicted U.S. can’t afford with a possible recession looming.
The plan, which exceeded by $7 billion President Joe Biden’s request last month, passed overwhelmingly and now heads to the Senate where it is expected pass easily.
“When you’re home thinking about [what the aid package] is all about, just think about ‘when I was hungry, you fed me’ from the Gospel of Matthew,” Pelosi said somberly, paraphrasing Matthew 25:35.
Pelosi’s reliance on scripture to sell the plan drew howls on social media.
“Nancy Pelosi and Bible quotes go together like peanut butter and anchovies,” tweeted MainePatriot.
