Skip to comments.Nancy Pelosi urges S.F. archbishop to exit marriage march
Posted on 06/15/2014 10:13:38 AM PDT by Mrs. Don-o
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi took the lead this week in a high-profile lobbying effort to pressure San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone not to attend the controversial March for Marriage event, which she characterized as "venom masquerading as virtue."
Pelosi, who is one of the country's most powerful Catholic politicians, made a passionate appeal to the archbishop not to participate in the National Organization for Marriage's June 19 march on the Supreme Court in Washington.
Cordileone, who is one of the featured speakers at the event, was a leader in the campaign for Proposition 8, the 2008 California anti-gay-marriage initiative.
Last week, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, along with a host of Bay Area religious leaders, sent a joint letter to Cordileone protesting his plans to attend the march.
Cordileone has nevertheless become a national leader in the religious movement against gay marriage. He heads the Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage for the politically powerful U.S. Conference of Bishops and was instrumental in raising $1.5 million to get Prop. 8, which banned same-sex marriage, on the California ballot in 2008.
The measure has since been ruled unconstitutional.
But Cordileone has remained outspoken in his opposition to gay marriage, saying, "The ultimate attack of the evil one is the attack on marriage."
Cordileone has publicly defended next week's March for Marriage as "an important means to promote and defend marriage for the good of our culture, to pray for our federal and state governments, and to stand in solidarity with people of good will."
In a letter defending the event, he said, "This is a critical time for marriage in our country, as marriage amendments are being struck down by federal courts and appeals of these decisions are being made."

The Archbishop should do all good Catholics a favor and excommunicate Nazi.
The good archbishop should turn right around and excommunicate the obnoxious heretic.
When will we see church discipline?
The Church should have ex-communicated people like Pelosi long ago.
“””Pelosi, who is one of the country’s most powerful Catholic politicians,””””
She is definitely not a Catholic.
Pelosi may call herself a Catholic but she certainly is NO Catholic.
Why is Pelosi mixing the Church and the State?
Isn;t separation of the two a high Leftist value? /s
Nanzi Pelousey IS “venom masquerading as virtue.”
Vipers amongst us...and Muslims in the House!!!
You beat me to it. I’m more Catholic than she is. And I’m not Catholic.
“But Cordileone has remained outspoken in his opposition to gay marriage, saying, “The ultimate attack of the evil one is the attack on marriage.”
He’s talking about Pelosi here, yes?
Who is she? The new Pope?
She needs to be excomunicated from the church.
The archbishop should tell this minion of Satan, “ Get thee behind me.”
for the left it is always politics and they defend anything with that... except when it could be used by others. She is not the Pope, she is a public servant. She cannot use that to favor her placement in the church or business... but DC has become so corrupt and the government of liberals nearly theocratic,fascist like the Nazi party.
No True Scotsman (or, in this case, No True Catholic) fallacy.
