Does Pelosi think she is in charge of the Catholic Church?
Pro-Abortion Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that she could decide whether or not she should take communion at mass.
The church is strongly against abortion.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who supports legalized abortion, said at her press briefing on Thursday that she can use her “own judgement” on whether to take Holy Communion at a Catholic Mass.
At her weekly press conference, Pelosi confirmed a reporter’s claim that “U.S. archbishops and the Bishops Conference” don’t want priests to give her communion when she attends mass:
Here is here response:
“No, I think I can use my own judgment on that. But I’m pleased with what the Vatican put out on that subject. Did you read that?”
Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordieleone of California released a pastoral letter talking about whether pro-abortion politicians should get communion. He said they should not receive communion:
“Your Catholic ideals inspire you in your work to help those who experience discrimination, violence, and injustice, and you deserve the gratitude of your fellow Catholics and our nation for this service. But we cannot empower the weak by crushing the weakest,” wrote Cordileone.
“If you find that you are unwilling or unable to abandon your advocacy for abortion, you should not come forward to receive Holy Communion. To publicly affirm the Catholic faith while at the same time publicly rejecting one of its most fundamental teachings is simply dishonest.”
