In her April 22 Earth Day news release, Pelosi said,
"The Bible tells us in the Old Testament, '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.' On this Earth Day, and every day, let us pledge to our children, and our children's children, that they will have clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and the opportunity to experience the wonders of nature."
Ummm...where does the Bible say "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"?
Maybe this is the 'long lost' 11th commandment.
Perhaps she was reading from the book of Hezikiah or the new Green Peace Translation.
Or maybe she was lying and was banking on the fact that Biblically illiterate Americans wouldn't know the difference.
Regardless of how noble you think your cause may be, the fact is, no one (including the Speaker of the House) has the right to make up stuff and then attribute it to the Bible.
