State Committeewoman Jo Ann Nardelli of Blair County resigned her position after defecting to the Republican Party. She cited her Catholic faith and President Obama’s support of marriage equality as her motivation. Nardelli is also anti-choice so she should feel more welcome with the open bigots in the GOP. If she doesn’t support her own rights how can I expect her to support mine?
I do wonder how her statement that she is guided by her Catholic faith: “I respect all of you and all that I have achieved in the past. Due to personal matters and faith beliefs at this time, it is only fair to resign” will find consistency with an organization waging war on both women and the poor. I thought Christianity called for healing the sick and feeding the poor?
Nardelli will miss the upcoming Democratic State Committee meeting in Valley Forge, the first since Obama came out in support of equality. Instead she will pledge loyalty to Pope Nazi I of Rome whose moral obligation is to protect pedophile priests. That’s what I call a moral failing. Perhaps she should begin following her own guidance and morals rather than those of Rome and the GOP which only serve to harm people. It’s one more ConservaDem gone.
