Good for Archbishop Chaput. As Amy Welborn says, when a politician purports to pronounce what Catholic doctrine is, bishops should as part of their teaching office correct publicly any errors stated. I remember not too long ago Boston Mayor Menino purporting to state what he thought was the correct Catholic view on homosexuality. I truly wish Cardinal O’Malley had issued a public statement correcting his errors.
The Killer B’s - Biden and Barack
WOW. It’s about time. There walks a man of God.
These words and others spring to mind. Now follow up with action. By her beliefs, she is a heretic. So is Biden. So is Kennedy. So is Kerry.
Bring back the stake for heretics.
If Ms. Pelosi is has truly studied this issue as an “ardent” Catholic, then her response can only be seen as deception, an attempt to convince Catholics in name-only that there is wiggle room in the abortion debate. I pray that she reconsiders her view.
Hmm, sounds like she need more practice.
Pelosi should be forgiven. Her limousine rides to Sunday School when she was a Baltimore debutante clouded her memories of what was in the book meant for “those other people.”
Ouch! Hey Pelosi, give it up you are not a Catholic!
God bless Archbishop Chaput!!
Yes but all of us dumb Catholics will vote for the abortion ticket of Obama/Biden because Biden is supposed to be a Cathoilc. Don’t forget that come November. You are too stupid to see through this crap.
I’m glad she didn’t get a pass on this at least by the church. Wonder when the MSM is going to cover this!
What shouldn't? The teaching of the Church? The actual beginning of life?
Catholism has never been for the feint of heart.
Even less going forward, it looks like.
They're gonna hate us for shining light into their darkness.
I am shocked that the Bishop did not add to his statement the fact that by her statement purporting to present the Church’s teachings, Pelosi has endangered the souls of those Catholics who might follow her lead. This is prima facie cause for excommunication.
Interesting...I don't normally associate Bonhoffer's era with being so egregious about abortion that he would have spoken out about it.
