Congresswoman Finds Her Place?

Is it the place of Congress members to apply their religion to how they think on domestic policy issues? As Archhbishop Chaput of Denver, CO unabashedly stated in Render Unto Caesar, if we believe, then we must act in accordance with what we believe. In other words, faith without works that are indicative of that faith is meaningless (a paraphrase of the Epistle of St. James as well).

On this very day, Congresswoman Pelosi of CA, home sweet leftist home, had the blessed opportunity to meet with his holiness, Pope Benedict XVI. The following was listed on the web:

The Pope regularly meets with visiting dignitaries after his Wednesday audience, and ordinarily no public statements are issued. But following his meeting with Pelosi, that meeting, the Vatican released this unusual public statement:
His Holiness took the opportunity to speak of the requirements of the natural moral law and the Church's consistent teaching on the dignity of human life from conception to natural death which enjoin all Catholics, and especially legislators, jurists and those responsible for the common good of society, to work in co-operation with all men and women of good will in creating a just system of laws capable of protecting human life at all stages of its development. (end quote)

Will Pelosi respond accordingly? Does the faith she claims to confess still bind her heart? Is her place in or out of the Body of Christ? Is her place in this world, the Civitas Humanum, or in the next, the Civitas Dei? Apparently her own bishop met with her about her startlingly false remarks on theology, history, and philosophy on Meet the Press...was he as direct?
