I have no problem with that in fact I think it's a very good thing.
And -- -- she's talking in the context of a religious gathering in front of a pastor.
I'm talking about social issues as they're related to our responsibility -- politician going back to the Bible and teaching the Bible as foundation for being good.
To our neighbors no problem -- But it's OK I think you're -- -- just going to try to separate the person in this case Nancy Pelosi from looking at the principal.
OK so it's not a personal -- if you use the Bible in this case actually saying Matthew the gospel of Matthew says.
