BREAKING NEWS – San Francisco, California – Rep. Nancy Pelosi this week publicly called out San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone after he barred her from communion in the churches he oversees.
“I have a problem with my archbishop – well, the archbishop of the city that I represent – but I figure that’s his problem, not mine,” the former speaker of the house said in an interview with Georgetown University’s Center on Faith and Justice in Washington, D.C., noting that she had five children in six years.
“I am hereby notifying you that you are not to present yourself for Holy Communion and, should you do so, you are not to be admitted to Holy Communion, until such time as you publicly repudiate your advocacy for the legitimacy of abortion and confess and receive absolution of this grave sin in the sacrament of Penance,” Cordileone wrote in the letter.
“God is powerful, and so am I,” responded Pelosi in a letter she wrote to Cordileone. “Thus, God and I will agree to disagree on what’s morally right versus wrong, and we’ll stay in our own lanes. But it is good to know that the respect between me and the Almighty is mutual because we are peers, equal in authority.”
