Pelosi should be excommunicated.

I don't say this lightly. She has just brought scandal to the church, and if the church doesn't take action it creates even more confusion to the average Catholic.

Catholic Democrats have been confusing to Protestants for decades! That's not to say that Catholics have a monopoly on creating confusion.

I remember telling a Baptist deacon who was supporting Bill Clinton at the time, "You can be a good Baptist, or you can be a Democrat-- but you can't be both.

**Pelosi should be excommunicated.**

She has excommunicated herself by supporting abortion and is no longer able to be communicated -- receive Communion.

Actually I believe she already is. It is automatic. The problem here is that her bishop doesn't seem to think she is at issue with the teachings of the church. He is putting her soul in jeopardy and his as well by not addressing this with her.
