Archbishop to Pelosi, critics: No, I wont drop March for Marriage
LifeSiteNews ^ | 6-16-14 | Ben Johnson

San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone has responded that, despite criticism from political leaders in his home state, he will attend the March for Marriage this week, because his position requires him to act as a defender of the Catholic faith.

In a letter released today, Cordileone wrote that he is required “as a bishop, to proclaim the truth—the whole truth—about the human person and God’s will for our flourishing ... especially the truth about marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife,” Cordileone wrote. “That is what I will be doing on June 19th.”

Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone Political figures from Nancy Pelosi to San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee to California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom had written to Cordileone, asking him not to take part in the second annual march in Washington, D.C., on Thursday.

Pelosi, who supports marriage redefinition, called the march “venom masquerading as virtue.”

"We share our love of the Catholic faith and our city of San Francisco," she wrote to her archbishop. But she said some of the event's participants show “hate and disdain” for homosexuals.

Bill Donohue of the Catholic League accused Pelosi of selective outrage. “When gays go naked in the streets of San Francisco, and mock Catholicism in patently obscene ways, Pelosi is never offended. What offends her is her archbishop's public defense of the Church's teachings on marriage,” he said.

Glad the guy told her no but he is avoiding his faith in avoiding excoming her. And it is a poor example to christians of all stripes.

You sure an excommunication is in order?

I was thinking more along the lines of an exorcism.

Or His Holiness the Archbishop could consecrate a Titleist driver, and deal with the problem ala Silent Bob...

They have a great exorcism team down there. One of the members has been up to our diocese trying to help us get one established.

Donohue needs to call for Pelosi’s ex-communication if she stands with the filth at the Folsom Street Fair then.

And here’s a link to what Pelosi endorses— http://www.zombietime.com/folsom_sf_2007_part_1/index.php

AB should reply:

“Dear Nancy,

I have a better idea.
I’ll go ahead and participate in the March for Marriage.

But, how about you quit calling yourself “Catholic” since you don’t seem to believe or practice any of the teachings of the Catholic Church.”

So Botox Queen, when will you be making note of some of the “hate and disdain” for Christians shown at the Folsom Street Fair?

Archbishop Cordileone is the archbishop of Oakland.

It is the bishop of San Francisco who has the jursidiction to excommunicate Pelosi.

Those of us who are familiar with Archbishop Cordileone are aware that he is truly “lion-hearted”. To know him is to respect him and to depend on him.

Such a letter to Pelosi from the Archbishop would be along the lines of Pope Francis’s recent statement to the effect that half-hearted Catholics aren’t Catholics at all. Nancy has never been a Catholic in the sense of a true believer in the faith; it’s been a political prop to her, and for her use when she deems it appropriate.

If not excommunicated, she should be denied the sacraments. Including “Extreme Unction” or whatever they now call it Last Rites. At 70+ that could possibly, by some outside chance, cause her some concern.

No, he is not. Cordileone is the Archbishop of the San Francisco Archdiocese. He was promoted from Oakland to San Francisco in 2012. Bishop Michael Barber is now the Bishop of Oakland. Hence, Cordileone is indeed Pelosi's Archbishop.

As you know, I am not a catholic, but I agree. It is good to see someone stand up for what is right. It does not happen often enough these days.

"If not excommunicate,"

Hopefully we can read it after it is passed..................oh excuse me ...I mean done. Then we can read all about it. Then I wonder if we will hear her nervous laughter. A hideous sound if ever there was one. I pray for this mixed up person.

The Bishop should also announce the excommunication of Pelosi.

No. Cordileone is Abp of San Francisco; Bp Michael Barber, SJ, was installed in Oakland about a year ago.

You are right.

Now I realize the extent of the effects caused my recent time of convalescence. I haven’t kept up-dated enough to comment.

Sorry.

“Glad the guy told her no but he is avoiding his faith in avoiding excoming her. And it is a poor example to christians of all stripes.”

It’s “excommunication” not excoming.

He’s a great Christian of courage.

Pelosi needs prayer more than anything else. She has already excommunicated herself. Does she attend Mass? I doubt it.

She’s a cultural Catholic as much as a cultural Jew who attends shul once a year but avoids living it, or a Protestant who hasn’t seen the inside of a church in years, but keeps Christmas, not an observant one.

You can fool others; you can fool yourself, but you can’t fool the ineffable God.

S'Awright. I rely (to an absurd extent) on the Magisterium of Wiki.

I take it you have been very ill? I will pray for your complete recovery. I will bow my head and pray right now.

Excom is jutt shorthand.

As long as Pelosi is allowed to call herself a Catholic, she uses it to push liberalism and anti catholocism...the gay thing is just one example.. That makes a mockery of Catholics, the church and God.

Now I know God can take care of himself but the Church is empowering Pelosi to turn more people toward evil in its name and in God’s name.

In no way shape or form is that acceptable, nor is any priest on up who allows it folowing his own doctrine/teachings. This isn’t one slip up. It is one of a series of direct challenges to what God’s word is.

If they accept it they are not following their faith and are every bit responsible for the spreading of evil she is..
