Pelosi hits back at archbishop over Holy Communion ban, lectures Catholic Church about the Bible

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi lashed out against the Catholic Church after she was banned from Holy Communion by San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone over her “extreme” position on abortion, taking her case to MSNBC to lecture the world’s oldest religious institution.

Pelosi appeared on Tuesday’s edition of “Morning Joe” where she was drooled over by the fawning couple of Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski who gave her a cable television forum to state her case as leftist frustration mounts over the Vatican’s inaction against Archbishop Cordileone after the San Francisco Examiner’s Editorial Board demanded that Pope Francis remove him from his duties over his grave insult to Madame Speaker.

After being buttered up by the show’s namesake, a former GOP member of Congress who resigned after a dead female intern was found in his office, Pelosi went on offensive, invoking the Holy Bible to slam the church.

“Well, good morning, Joe and thank you. Yes, we do go back a long way, when you were a new, young member of Congress,” Pelosi began. “What’s so sad about it, and as you were speaking, I’m thinking of some of the discussions I’ve had with other members of Congress over time and what is important for women to know and families to know, that this is not just about terminating a pregnancy.”

“So these same people are against contraception, family planning, in vitro fertilization,” she continued. “It’s… it’s a blanket thing and they use abortion as the front man for it while they try to undo so much, that’s what they tried to do in the Affordable Care Act, which didn’t have anything about terminating an abortion,” correcting herself, “a pregnancy.”

Pelosi added, “So let’s just say that, you know, I wonder about death penalty, which I am opposed to, so is the church, but they take no action against people who may not share their view.”

“Thank you for referencing the gospel of Matthew which is sort of the agenda of the church that is rejected by many who side with them on terminating a pregnancy,” she said to Scarborough who referenced the holy scripture when setting the table for Pelosi.

“So we just have to be prayerful,” the self-proclaimed “devout Catholic” said. “We have to be respectful. I come from a largely pro-life Italian-American Catholic family, so I respect people’s views about that but I don’t respect us foisting it onto others.”

She then accused Archbishop Cordileone of being a homophobe, a cardinal sin in “woke” leftist dogma.

“Now, our archbishop has been vehemently against LGBTQ rights, too,” Pelosi said, “in fact. He led the way in some of the initiatives on — an initiative on the ballot in California, so this decision, taking us to privacy and precedent, is very dangerous in the lives of so many of the American people, and again, not consistent with the gospel of Matthew.”

It was a perfect display of Pelosi’s titanic ego and arrogance which knows no limits.

Matters have escalated after Cordileone took to Twitter last Friday to announce that Pelosi has been forbidden from partaking in the holy rite after refusing his outreach to “help her understand the grave evil she is perpetrating” along with the “danger to her own soul.”

“I have determined that the point has come in which I must make a public declaration that she is not to be admitted to Holy Communion unless and until she publicly repudiate her support for abortion ‘rights’ and confess and receive absolution for her cooperation in this evil in the sacrament of Penance. I have accordingly sent her a Notification to this effect, which I have now made public,” the religious letter wrote in a “letter to the faithful” announcing his action against Pelosi.
