(RoyalPatriot.com )- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reacted on Tuesday to the Catholic archbishop of San Francisco’s statement that she would no longer be able to take communion due to her stance on abortion access. She pointed out that the Catholic church had not refused to give a connection to parliamentarians who sty, violating, even though this is also against the church’s Catechism.
In an MSNBC interview Tuesday morning, Pelosi said that she is curious about the death penalty, which she rejects. She says the church does as well, but they take no action against those who do not share their viewpoint.
She said that all we have to do now is pray, and we must treat one other with respect. She says she comes from an Italian American Catholic household that is mainly pro-life. Therefore she appreciates people’s opinions on the subject. But she doesn’t think we should impose it on others. Now,
Pelosi said that the archbishop had been a vocal opponent of LGBTQ rights, and in fact, he was a driving force behind several of the proposals on the ballot in California. As a result, this ruling, which leads to privacy and precedent, is extremely harmful in the lives of many Americans.
On Tuesday, Pelosi’s appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” came after Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone issued a public letter notifying Pelosi, who is from San Francisco, that she would no longer be able to take the sacrament of communion if she did not give up her fight for abortion rights.
Since Pelosi pledged to keep campaigning to entrench Roe v. Wade in legislation, Cordileone’s “many pleas” to talk with her had been ignored, he wrote on Friday.
On April 7, the archbishop informed Pelosi that if she did not openly disavow her support for abortion rights or stop from mentioning her faith in public, he would have no choice but to deny her communion.
The archbishop wrote that the moment of reckoning had arrived. Since she has not publicly denounced her view on abortion, she continues to use her Catholic religion to explain her attitude and accept Holy Communion.
The letter read:
“In light of my responsibility as Archbishop of San Francisco to be concerned for all the Christian faithful entrusted to my care, I am hereby notifying you that you are not to present yourself for Holy Communion, and if you do, you will not be admitted to Holy Communion, until you publicly repudiate your advocacy for the legitimacy of abortion and confess and receive absolution of this grave sin.”
