House Speaker Nancy Pelosi invoked her faith at a press conference on Thursday when discussing the $550 billion spending bill Democrats are trying to push through Congress.
“For me, it’s a religious thing. I believe this is God’s creation, and we have a moral obligation to be good stewards. If you don’t share that view, you must share the view that we have an obligation to future generations,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi made these statements after her attendance at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland, where she led a 21 member Congressional delegation in representing the U.S.
“It gave us great hope,” she said. “We had the highest level meetings there and were inspired by what happened.”
