Nancy Pelsoi’s own archbishop has apparently finally had enough of her attempting to use her Catholic faith to defend moral horrors like Abortion.
As The Daily Wire reports:
San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone rebuked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday for claiming to be a “devout Catholic” while defending taxpayer-funded abortions.
No one can claim to be a devout Catholic and condone the killing of innocent human life, let alone have the government pay for it. See my full statement to follow. https://t.co/EUDssQAOoQ

During a Thursday press conference, Pelosi said that while she feels “blessed” to be a “devout Catholic” mother of five, she does not believe it is her place to prevent poor women from having abortions.
“Because it’s an issue of health of many women in America, especially those in lower income situations, and different states, and it is something that has been a priority for many of us a long time,” Pelosi said in part.
The issue of how best to handle self-professed Catholic politicians who defy Church teachings regarding public support for abortion has become a flashpoint issue since President Joe Biden’s inauguration. In June, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) voted overwhelmingly in favor of drafting a document that could lead to a rebuke of publicly pro-abortion Catholic politicians.
Should Catholic bishops start to deny communion to supposedly Catholic Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden who defy its teachings on abortion? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
