Pelosi invokes God on climate bill

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi invoked God last week in arguing for passing cap-and-trade legislation, and she did so in a nearly completely under the radar way.

The California Democrat inserted a passage into the congressional record after her remarks on the floor last Friday that included the following remark:
I urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to protect God's beautiful creation by supporting this legislation.

Of course, she didn't really "urge her colleagues" since she didn't say it on the floor before the vote. Nevertheless, the bill passed with 219 votes.
