San Francisco archbishop: Pelosi’s abortion stance incompatible with Catholicism

In an op-ed penned for the Washington Post, San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone declared that the pro-choice positions of politicians such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) are inconsistent with Catholic teachings and that those who champion abortion rights should be denied Holy Communion, as Breitbart reports.

Cordileone’s piece was written in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision to let stand a Texas statute that effectively bans abortions after six weeks’ gestation, a ruling that prompted immediate panic and outrage from liberals everywhere, including Pelosi and President Joe Biden, himself also a self-professed practicing Catholic.

In the immediate aftermath of the high court’s holding, Pelosi was among those on the left pledging immediate action to try and thwart not just enforcement of the Texas law, but also to federally codify the 1973 holding in Roe v. Wade as a means to eliminate the ability of any state legislature to place restrictions on abortion.

Biden, for his part, vowed to initiate a “whole-of-government” attack on the power of duly elected state lawmakers to enact limitations on when, how, and under what circumstances abortions can take place, calling the Texas law “extreme” and an “unprecedented assault on women’s constitutional rights.”

In the wake of the Supreme Court decision on the Texas law, Biden also indicated that he does not believe that human life begins at the moment of conception, a marked departure from his past position on the subject, saying in 2015, “I’m prepared to accept that the moment of conception is a human life and being,” adding yet another layer of conflict between his political conduct and his supposed religious faith.

The archbishop, however, remained unmoved on the issue and declared in his op-ed that abortion represents “the preeminent human rights issue of our time,” as Breitbart noted, adding that any politician who fights for abortion should not be permitted to participate in Holy Communion.

In a scathing rebuke of the notion that one can simultaneously consider themselves a practicing Catholic while also working on behalf of pro-choice interests, Cordileone opined, “You cannot be a good Catholic and support expanding a government-approved right to kill innocent human beings. This is hardly inappropriate for a pastor to say.”

Indeed, asserting that there has never been a better time for people in his position to speak out, the archbishop argued, “If anything, Catholic political leaders’ response to the situation in Texas highlights the need for us to say it all the louder.”

Earlier this year, Pelosi attempted to reconcile the discrepancies between her religion and her abortion politics by saying, “it’s not up to me to dictate…what other people should do,” and while few would argue with that assertion, kudos for Archbishop Cordileone for reminding her that with regard to remaining in good standing with the Church, however, she can’t really have it both ways.

“Pelosi’s abortion stance incompatible with Catholicism” – I’m not Catholic and I knew that!! Piglosi doesn’t care; money and power are her religion. She is as evil as Ole Sippy Cup and Camel Dung.
