(PresidentialWire.com)- While discussing politics and her faith, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) brought up the Catholic archbishop of San Francisco during her Thursday speech at the Center on Faith and Justice at Georgetown University.
After Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone announced last year that the former House Speaker would not be permitted to receive Holy Communion, Pelosi took a firm stand against him.
Pelosi stated that she figured that was his problem, not hers, and added that she has “a problem” with her archbishop.
She also stated that she was pretty much “in sync” with a lot of the Catholic Church’s teachings, even though the San Francisco Archbishop has refused to give her Communion due to her stance on abortion.
Pelosi said that they get right to that one issue because they are pretty much on the same page with everything else when it comes to the social agreement that the Catholic bishops and the rest of the congregation has. However, for one reason, they (the Church) are willing to abandon the majority of it.
Additionally, she discussed the 13th anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, and specifically the bishops’ opposition to the bill. Pelosi said, “Thank God for the nuns,” praising them for their assistance with the legislation.
Since May 2022, when Cordileone wrote a letter announcing Pelosi would be barred from receiving Holy Communion due to her stance on abortion, the California congresswoman has been unable to receive the sacrament in the Archdiocese of San Francisco.
According to Cordileone’s statement in the letter, a Catholic lawmaker who supports abortion commits a “grave sin.”
According to its teachings, Catholics regard abortion as “evil.”
To help her understand the sin she is committing, the scandal, and the danger to her own soul she is risking, Cordileone stated that he had made numerous attempts to speak with Pelosi about her views on abortion.
