You may remember Nancy from her triumphant theological debut. HERE and HERE
And remember her comment that abortion is sacred ground? HERE
SFGate has it:
Nancy Pelosi urges S.F. archbishop to exit marriage march
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 countrys most powerful [pro-abortion absolutist] Catholic politicians, made a passionate appeal to the archbishop in a letter obtained by The Chronicle not to participate in the National Organization for Marriages 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.
We share our love of the Catholic faith and our city of San Francisco, Pelosi wrote to Cordileone, who, as head of the 560,000-member Archdiocese of San Francisco, has become the Catholic bishops point man against gay marriage. She urged him to abandon an event in which some of the participants show disdain and hate towards LGBT persons. [If that's what Pelosi says, you can be sure the event is exactly the opposite.]
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? [?!?.... and?]
The goal of the second annual March for Marriage is to draw thousands of supporters of what they call traditional marriage [you can almost hear the sneer.... "what they call..."] to walk from the U.S Capitol to the Supreme Court. Conservative former presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, as well as Cordileone, are being billed as the star speakers.
Is there some initiative out there in support of Archbp. Cordileone? I am itching to create an ACTION ITEM.
Can. 915 needs to be applied to this scandalous wreck of a Catholic.
You have the inmates running the asylum. Who does she think she is? I will tell you what she is not, she is not a catholic.
Dear Church: excommunicate, now please.
So much for the separation of church and state.
“Oh, she excommunicated herself”
Nope, that doesn’t cut it.
Perhaps this is the incident through which Cordileone WILL excommunicate her.
PS. Some people don’t realize that in support same sex marriage and abortion she has already excommunicated herself.
The woman was, is and (clearly) will continue to be all that will best define the concept of an “air head,” for this generation of Americans.
The trouble that that (I will not try to spell the Latin, I will murder it), is that if the self excommunication is not enforced, it hasn’t happened.
Now I understand why no Bishop wants to pull that trigger, as the fallout will lead to a lot people leaving, but as things stand now it is at best causing grave scandal.
I’m curious to see which prelates attend . . . and which do not. Pelosi is only the most vocal lay leader of a nascent break-away American Catholic church.
Doesn’t do much good if she is unaware of it and if she still calls herself a catholic publically and entices others to break the laws of the church.
