Nancy Pelosi urges S.F. archbishop to exit marriage march
SF Gate ^ | Saturday, June 14, 2014 | Carla Marinucci

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.

[snip]

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.

[snip]

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."

[snip]

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."

Class, discuss.

Pelosi and the Progressives hate Holy Matrimony and think gayness should be enforced in every family.

When will we see church discipline?

“””Pelosi, who is one of the country’s most powerful Catholic politicians,””””

She is definitely not a Catholic.

How this woman can call herself a Catholic is simply beyond any credibility. She is the queen of free abortion on demand, and is a supporter of all perversions. I would think she believes prostitution should be legalized just as well as a right to marry your dogs and cats (plural).

She certainly makes a mockery of the Catholic church - why don't they banish her from the church?

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.

The author doesn’t seem to understand that Ms. Pelosi is Catholic in name only.

“The Vatican has finally had enough of U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi illogically insisting she’s a “good Catholic” while consistently supporting unrestricted abortion.

Burke ivThe Vatican’s chief justice, Cardinal Raymond Burke, said the California Democrat should no longer receive the sacrament of Holy Communion, according to CNS News.”

Invoking the words of Pope Francis with regard to gays and lesbians, she wrote, "If someone is gay and is searching for the Lord and has good will, then who am I to judge him?"

I often wonder if Pope Francis has any idea how much damage he did with that comment, and, if so, whether he feels any remorse for it.

I agree-even so, I didn’t read anything in the Pope’s statement about same sex marriage even being possible, much less approved. The church taught me that marriage can only be a man and a woman, and I don’t see the Pope saying that has changed, no matter what idiots like Pelosi want to believe...

Nancy Pelosi does not want a march for traditional marriage, because that is a Christian tradition. Pelosi’s boss in the WH is an Islamist. She takes her marching orders from a Satan-worshipping muslim.

How this woman can call herself a Catholic is simply beyond any credibility.

That's the beauty of free will. She can call herself whatever she wants. She can call good evil and evil good. We've been doing it ever since Genesis 3:5. Of course, she's exceptionally skilled. Unfortunately for her, she doesn't have many years left on this earth before she stands before the Judgement Seat.

“Pelosi, who is one of the country's most powerful Catholic politicians”

Pelosi is NOT a Catholic. She is a sick, power hungry liar and corrupt politician. The failure of the Catholic hierarchy to stand up to evil people like Pelosi has been a great embarrassment to sincere, faithful Catholics. Now Pelosi has seen the hierarchy is afraid to stand up for their beliefs she feels she can order them around.

Pelosi is Hillary’s Chief Capo.

Hillary indicates a new level of self-abasement.

Pelosi then enacts it.

Feminists, Soccer Moms and the rest of Hillary’s Army then imitate Pelosi.

While washing down antidepressants with gallons of wine and avoiding mirrors.

Hilar’s grand scheme is to make liberal women violate their own conscinces so profoundly, and commit such filthy, heinous and cruel acts, so many times, that they become convinced they can never be forgiven, an that Hillary is the only one who can or will protect them - for their loyalty.

Foolish women. Hillary is disgusted with you and laughs at you behind your backs. You know, the way she’s taught you to act? That’s why she obesseses over loyalty so much - because she’s betrayed every one of you. She’s stolen your femininity - reaped it right out out you, and thrown it down the toilet. She doesn’t even want it herself. She just doesn’t want you to have it, because without it, she owns you. And that’s why she wants you to hate men, too - because they’re the one’s who would have cherished and protected that feminiity she taught you to revile.

Foolish, foolish women.

If the FDA had banned Botox a few decades ago, Nancy Pelosi would now look like what she really is — a cross between the Wicked Witch of the West and an 80-year-old prune.

People would no longer listen to her evil hate-crime attacks against the Catholic Church and its sacred institutions if her face had not been expertly hidden under a cosmetically doctored Barbie Doll mask to give her some credibility.

Nancy Pelosi is the very definition of a monster. She has the head of a doll, the body of a 74-year-old senior citizen in a $3,000 Armani suit, and the brain of a dementia sufferer who thinks an Archbishop of the Catholic Church would listen to her ravings instead of to God or his own conscience.

BTW, last year Nancy Pelosi, who thinks traditional marriage is a venomous institution, celebrated her 50th wedding anniversary to a heterosexual male, a male without whose wealth her misbegotten political career would not have been possible.

The Bishops, Cardinals and Pope apparently believe otherwise. None of the above have formally excommunicated Pelosi. And Pelosi has never been denied Holy Communion in the Archdioceses of San Francisco or Washington.

Pelosi is NOT a Catholic.

The following is not one of my usual anti-Catholic bloviations.

Regardless of what Pelosi "really" is, she is officially Catholic. She regularly receives communion, which implies she is a "Catholic in good standing" as well as free of all "mortal sin."

Not just obnoxious anti-Catholics like myself, but all decent people, including those friendly to the Catholic Church would really love to see some form of discipline visited on Pelosi and people like her. Considering that the Catholic Church as recently as the Sixties excommunicated segregationists in Louisiana, there is simply no good reason for this. One may speak of how "the Church thinks in centuries" but in the past someone with Pelosi's beliefs would never even have come into existence under the Catholic Church.

She and her fellows have not been excommunicated, not because the Church thinks in centuries, but because of radicalism and subversion in the highest reaches of the Catholic Church.

When there is too much nod and wink in Christendom, the good Lord will chasten it until it remembers what its Savior is about — which is certainly not about perverting marriage. That we can count on.

Chaotic, unorganized independent congregationalism certainly has its drawbacks. So does high centralization, in that when things go wrong at the top, they automatically go wrong everywhere.
