RedState: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is very fond of tossing her Catholicism around when she thinks it serves her narrative. But when it doesn’t — such as when she goes against basic Church teaching when it comes to abortion — she doesn’t seem to think that particular teaching applies to her or the policies that she pushes.
With the latest bill Democrats tried to push through the House, Pelosi was championing radical abortion access, up to the moment of birth. She also was encouraging abortion protests against the Supreme Court justices, specifically to try to change their minds — essentially endorsing ‘decision by intimidation.’
That may have been the last straw for San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone. Cordileone announced Friday that Pelosi is now banned from receiving Holy Communion because of her pro-abortion stance, until she formally and publicly renounces her position. Cordileone had previously warned Pelosi about her actions. Now, he has sent her a letter saying that she shouldn’t come up to Communion during mass because priests will not give her communion. more
