"Very Dangerous": Pelosi Responds For The First Time Since Being
Banned From Communion


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on May 24 reacted for the first
time to being banned from communion in San Francisco, where she lives.

The decision “is very dangerous,” Pelosi said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Joseph Cordileone recently
announced that he was banning Pelosi because of her continued support
for abortion despite “numerous attempts” to convince her of “the grave
evil she is perpetrating.”

Cordileone said he held off on the move for years while speaking with
Pelosi but was compelled to act after the lawmaker’s position on
abortion became “more extreme.” He also noted she has said that her
Catholic faith motivates her support for abortion, which directly
opposes Pope Francis and the Catholic teachings.

“Since the first century the church has affirmed the moral evil of
every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains
unchangeable,” the Vatican said in a communication to questioners in
2009, citing the Catechism of the Catholic Church. “Direct abortion,
that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is
gravely contrary to the moral law.”

Pelosi will not receive communion in San Francisco until she “publicly
repudiate[s] her support for abortion ‘rights’ and confess[es] and
receive[s] absolution for her cooperation in this evil in the
sacrament of penance,” Cordileone said.

Pelosi, speaking on Tuesday, attacked Cordileone directly by
describing him as being “against LGBTQ rights” and questioning why he
has not barred people who support the death penalty from taking

“I wonder about death penalty, which I am opposed to. So is the
church, but they take no action against people who may not share their
view,” she said.

Pelosi reportedly received communion at Holy Trinity Catholic Church
in Georgetown over the weekend following Cordileone’s announcement.

The Archdiocese of Washington did not respond to a request for comment.

A spokesperson told the Washington Examiner that Archbishop Wilton
Gregory will not ban Pelosi from communion.

“The actions of Archbishop Cordileone are his decision to make in the
Archdiocese of San Francisco. Cardinal Gregory has not instructed the
priests of The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington to refuse
communion to anyone,” the spokesperson said.

Other bishops, including Bishop Robert Vasa of the Diocese of Santa
Rosa, have said they support Cordileone’s decision.

“All politicians who promote abortion should not receive holy
communion until they have repented, repaired scandal, and been
reconciled to Christ and the church,” Bishop Thomas Paprocki of
Springfield, Illinois, said in a statement.

Pelosi on Tuesday also was asked about the Women’s Health Protection
Act, which she helped pass the House of Representatives before a
bipartisan majority of senators blocked it.

Pelosi falsely said the bill did not expand access to abortion,
alleging it would just “enshrine Roe v. Wade into the law.”

“I think it’s very insulting to women to have their ability to make
their own decision hampered by politics,” she said. “This should never
have been politicized.”
