BREAKING NEWS – San Francisco, California – San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone announced that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is barred from receiving Holy Communion due to her pro-abortion stance — marking an escalation in a decades-long tension between the Roman Catholic Church and liberal Democratic politicians on abortion.

Cordileone has written to the California Democrat, informing her that she should not present herself for Holy Communion at Mass, and that priests will not distribute communion to her if she does present herself.

Pelosi tweeted a response. “Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone is just a low ranking official in the Catholic church,” she began. “Jesus was a rabbi in a small community. I am the Speaker of the House, so I outrank both of them. Thus, they should be listening to my rules, not the other way around!”
