Those statements earned a direct response from Cordileone, who said that “Nancy Pelosi does not speak for the Catholic Church” and that “she also speaks in direct contradiction to a fundamental human right that Catholic teaching has consistently championed for 2,000 years.”
Pelosi, a California Democrat and high-profile Catholic, has long supported women’s right to access abortion care — and, for nearly as long, she has come under fire from those who say her views contradict the teachings of the church, which considers abortion a grave sin.
Why does Miss Pelosi not give up her faith if she does not respect the teachings of the Catholic Church? What purpose does it serve her by pretending to be a Catholic, especially given that she is prohibited from receiving communion. Does she really want to be an outcast? Is she for real? I don’t get it?
