By John Lillpop:
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), has for years made a mockery of the Catholic Church with statements and behavior that defy the teachings of the Christian church, and which run counter to the admonitions of contemporary Catholic Church leadership.
Pelosi has been a long-standing advocate for both abortion and gay marriage, viewed as sins by most respectful Catholics. She has justified her defiance with bizarre claims that Church teachings on abortion are “unclear,” an assertion that Catholics generally dismiss as the musing of a confused heretic.
Pelosi has openly expressed her support for gay marriage and even calls her position a “badge of honor.” More nonsense from a public figure who refuses to reconcile her leftist political views with spiritual teachings of the Church she professes to love.
Adding insult to injury, Pelosi continues to partake of the Holy Communion, a Sacrament meant to signify unity with the principles of Jesus Christ and the Church.
Pelosi’s heresy became more offensive recently when she railed against legislation that would infringe upon what she termed “sacred ground,” how Pelosi views late-term abortion.
To their credit, Catholic Priests for Life denounced Pelosi and stated:
“Abortion is not sacred ground; it is sacrilegious ground. To imagine God giving the slightest approval to an act that dismembers a child he created is offensive to both faith and reason.”
Still, the question remains: Why does the Catholic Church allow this fallen follower to discredit and mock the Holy Communion?
As a powerful and influential woman in world affairs, Pelosi sets an atrocious example for millions of young people throughout the world.
By allowing Nancy Pelosi to take Communion, is the Catholic Church not duplicitous in this woman’s heresy?
