Pelosi:Catholic Archdioceses Were Not ‘Speaking’ for Catholic Church When They Sued Administration

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/pelosi-catholic-archdioceses-were-not-speaking-catholic-church-when-they-sued?tw_p=twt (CNSNews.com) - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said on Thursday that the 43 Catholic institutions—including the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C., the Archdiocese of St. Louis and the Archdiocese of New York--that are suing the Obama administration over its regulation mandating that all health-care plans must cover sterilizations, contraceptives and abortifacients are not speaking for the Catholic Church.

When the lawsuits were filed in a coordinated action on May 21, Archbishop Robert J. Carlson of St. Louis spoke at a press conference, giving a quite different impression. "The mandate set to take effect in August of this year requires us to violate our teaching on sterilization, contraception, and abortion-inducing drugs," Archbishop Carlson said in explaining the lawsuits that were filed simultaneously in 12 different federal court districts across the country by Catholic archdiocoeses, dioceses, universities, schools and charitable organizations. "The Catholic Church, led by the U.S.C.C.B. [U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops], has pursued every imaginable avenue to correct this problem without litigation," said the archbishop. "But in a few short months, the federal government will force Catholic institutions to choose between violating the law and violating our moral convictions. Right now, the future is unclear, and any scenario that forces us to violate our moral convictions is unacceptable."

Would someone knowledgeable on the subject tell me just what the Hell Vatican II did/said to stop excommunications from the church?

There’s no way on God’s good, green Earth that this harpy would still be allowed within 500 ft. of hallowed ground just a few centuries ago. Instead, she can continue to blaspheme the highest orders of the Catholic institution and probably still walk the line on Sunday for the Host.

Absolutely despicable. She should be burned at the stake for heresy!

Isn’t this the same Nancy Pelosi that IS (supposedly) Catholic?

By the way - what ever happened to the Catholic stand (again - supposed) that they would begin withholding the “sacraments” from politicians that chose to vote/speak/work for abortion? Seems there were even bigger threats made at one point before that one...

When was the last time Pelosi was denied Communion? (or any other liberal politician)

If we burned this witch at the stake it would only elevate her status among all the other harpy witch feminazis.

Dear Archbishop;

Your Grace, next time, please file the litigation in Latin so this bimbo will get the right idea.

Thanks

Oh? Is it now Madam Pelosi who speaks for The Holy Sea? She’s in dire need of an exorcism or excommunication.

CINOs. I pray such "cafeteria Catholics" find out before it's too late that there are only two selections in the Eternity Cafeteria: Heaven or Hell.

There’s a doctrine called self excommunication,put forward by John Paul II. Catholics who had, paid for, or supported evils like abortion had self excommunicated themselves. This was a way of not having to deal with very public Catholics who supported things like abortion without the public rite of excommunication. That was feared would create a public schism as catholics took sides. However, Pelosi goes into different territory. She is effectively saying that the Church teachers are wrong and going against their teaching is a proper path. This can lead Catholics into grave sin. For the Church to show the Faithful that Pelosi is leading them to grave sin she NEEDS to be publicly excommunicated.Save her recanting, there is no other way.

Salve

“These people worship me by their lips; their heart is far away from me”

I think this will explain. These people are not Catholics at all, only in name like 65 Percent of American Jews who will vote for Obama.

Today Pope has been betrayed by his own, some suppose nuns are making decisions that are absolutely against Doctrine of the Church, and now this...

Pelosi and others are just bunch of hypocrites, don’t worry friend, you will find a truth by a fruit. Their ideology is of death, nothing good comes from death, worst is eternal death and they are proud of it.
Blinded fools.

Merci.

That’s not fair. Tariq at least had two hemispheres to his brain.
