WASHINGTON – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tried to connect with religious college leaders at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities conference Wednesday by sharing her favorite Bible verse – except there was one problem. The verse she shared was not in the Bible.
“And I can’t find it in the Bible but I quote it all the time and I keep reading and reading the Bible,” Pelosi said. “I know it’s there someplace. It’s supposed to be in Isiah. I heard bishop say to minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God made us. It’s there somewhere in some words or another but certainly the spirit of it is there.”
Whitworth University associate professor of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Will Kynes said the verse did not exist, according to Slate. The closest version was found in Proverbs 14:31.
“Those who oppress the poor insult their Maker, but those who are kind to the needy honor him,” was the most approximate version of what Pelosi said, according to Kyes, Slate reported.
FIGHT BIG TECH: CONTRIBUTE $$$ TO "HELP HOLD BIG-TECH ACCOUNTABLE"
Big Tech is using a content filtering system for online censorship. Take a few moments and watch our short video about NewsGuard to learn how they control the narrative for the Lamestream Media and help keep you in the dark. NewsGuard works with Big-Tech to make it harder for you to find certain content they feel is 'missing context' or stories their editors deem "not in your best interest" - regardless of whether they are true and/or factually accurate. They also work with payment processors and ad-networks to cut off revenue streams to publications they rate poorly by their same bias standards. This should be criminal in America.

This is not the first time Pelosi shared the quote. Pelosi used the phrase in an April, 21, 2018 Earth Day press release.
