Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), abortion-absolutist and these USA’s prime candidate for the proper application of can. 915, has opined on Pope Francis!
I am sure you are with child to learn of her wisdom.
And remember her recent comment that abortion is “sacred ground”? HERE
Pelosi: Pope Francis ‘Starting to Sound Like a Nun’
(CNSNews.com) – Pope Francis is “starting to sound like a nun,” [Pope Francis warned nuns not to wind up being “old maids… zitelle and showed his disdain for “female machismo”.]said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), a Catholic, when asked about some of the Pope’s recent remarks concerning issues such as abortion and homosexuality.In a Sept. 22 interview on CNN’s Situation Room, host Candy Crolwey asked Pelosi, “Before we go, Pope Francis is calling for a new balance between the chruch’s spiritual and political missions. He says the Catholic Church should not interfere spiritually in the lives of gays. [Is that what he said? I think not. His comment about “interfering” meant that the Church can propose, not force the will. But let’s go on.] He also called for a larger decision-making role for Catholic women. We ask Nancy Pelosi , one of the nation’s most prominent Catholics, for her reaction.”
Pelosi said, “Starting to sound like a nun. The Pope is starting to sound like the nuns.” [She has probably gotten her information about Francis from HuffPo or Slate.]
[Laugh Line Warning!] “Now, his Holiness is obviously a very revered figure,” said Pelosi. “I was there for his inauguration. And I being Catholic believed that he was chosen Pope by the intercession of the Holy Spirit, so I pay attention to what he says. [LOL! Pelosi pays attention to what Popes say?] And I can tell you that there is great joy among Catholics and friends of Catholics as to respect that his Holiness pays to all of God’s creation and members of the church and then beyond that. It’s really quite remarkable. It’s a source of joy to us all.” [The other day, Nancy, the Pope talked about the unborn babies who, though not yet seen in the light of day, have the face of the Lord. YOU Nancy, are an abortion-absolutist. Are you still paying attention to Pope Francis?]
When Crowley mentioned that the Pope’s remarks might not be “a source of joy to all Catholics because I’ve seen conservative Catholics express some reservations about it,” Pelosi said, “I don’t know about them because certainly when it was another Pope who had something else to say, they wanted to hold us all to it.” [Hypocrite.]
Over at American Catholic my friend The Motley Monk has posted about Ms. Pelosi’s track record.
He reminds us of what Card. Burke said:
Speaking truth to power, Cardinal Burke minced no words:
What Congresswoman Pelosi is speaking of is not particular confessional beliefs or practices of the Catholic Church. It belongs to the natural moral law which is written on every human heart and which the Catholic Church obviously also teaches: that natural moral law which is so wonderfully illumined for us by Our Lord Jesus Christ by His saving teaching, but most of all by His Passion and death.
To say that these are simply questions of Catholic faith which have no part in politics is just false and wrong. I fear for Congresswoman Pelosi if she does not come to understand how gravely in error she is. I invite her to reflect upon the example of St. Thomas More who acted rightly in a similar situation even at the cost of his life.
For this violation of Canon 915, Cardinal Burke asserted that Ms. Pelosi must be denied Communion.
