Nancy Pelosi was told last week by Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone in San Francisco that she wouldn’t be able to receive Holy Communion unless her public support for abortion is renounced.
Pelosi’s response is curious. “I respect people’s views about that. But I don’t respect us foisting it onto others.”
Aren’t archbishops doing that? Isn’t that what the Catholic Church does? Pelosi should create her own church where abortion is not considered a crime.
Pelosi tried a classic left-wing deflection by claiming that Cordileone was anti LGBTQ. Cordileone was the one who actually led the California initiative to place the question on the California state ballot.
What do the abortion rights say about LGBTQ rights in general? Nothing. Push as many buttons as you can to provoke a reaction by left-wing nuts.
Associated Press: Pelosi said women and families need to know this is about more than abortion. “These same people are against contraception, family planning, in vitro fertilization. It’s a blanket thing and they use abortion as the frontman for it.”
Cordileone said that he told Pelosi that he wanted her to end her support of abortion rights and to stop talking about her Catholic faith publicly.
There are some right-wingers who want to return to the 1950s. This narrative calls for birth control bans to be implemented despite the fact there is less chance of success than zero.
This decision is made by each bishop in his diocese. Washington’s archbishop Cardinal Wilton Gregory confirmed that Biden can receive the sacrament.
No. Durbin said that he still believes that church authorities believe there are problems that need to be solved by individual consciences and not by a conference.
This is a question the Catholic Church will need to answer. They can receive grace, but they cannot have abortions in Catholic hospitals.
The Catholic Church isn’t ready to take a strong position against abortion so it attempts to straddle the issue. Rome’s men are aware that abortion is an issue. They will continue to support life and accept most Catholics who support it.
Although it is difficult, this situation is necessary for the survival and growth of the West church.
