The Archbishop of San Francisco made an announcement on Friday that he would not allow House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to receive Communion, an escalation of his long feud with the Democratic Party. religious cult of the politics of abortion.
In a public notice to Pelosi, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone wrote that he “warned” Speaker Pelosi in April that she must withdraw her support for abortion rights or not mention it. to his Catholicism to justify them, complaining that the Speaker had refused to meet him. “Since you have not publicly denied your position on abortion, and continue to refer to your Catholic faith in justifying your position and for receiving Holy Communion, the time has come. ,” wrote Cordileone.
The Archbishop’s letter continues: “It is therefore my responsibility as Archbishop of San Francisco to ‘care for all the Christian faithful entrusted to [my] concern ‘… I hereby inform you that you must not come to receive Holy Communion and that if you do, you will not be admitted to Holy Communion, until you have publicly refused to support legitimacy. of abortion and confession and the remission of this mortal sin in the sacrament of Penance”.

Speaker Pelosi, an ardent Catholic, has long been an advocate of abortion rights and oversaw a vote that would codify abortion protections into federal law, which could not make it to the Senate due to interference from within her own party. The speaker dismissed the archbishop’s criticisms in the past, saying last fall, “I believe God has given us a free will to honor our responsibilities.”
When Communion is used as a political tool, it’s time to tax the church.
