WASHINGTON, DC, June 2 — Ms. Pelosi, please explain how you convince yourself that you are an honorable member of the Catholic Church. You disregard its most sacred tenet — the value of life — and then you go around promoting the murder of human beings. Mistake it not, they don’t call an unborn child a child for nothing. A child — however small it is — is just as human as you or me or those toddlers that real, caring women just love to cuddle, notwithstanding that it may be newborn or in a womb waiting to breathe the fresh air.
If I were in Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone’s shoes I wouldn’t just ban you from receiving Holy Communion; I would excommunicate you. As Archbishop Cordileone wrote in his letter informing you that you will not be allowed to receive communion he wrote “the Second Vatican Council, in its Decree on the Church in the Modern World, Gaudium et spes [Joy and Hope], reiterated the Church’s ancient and consistent teaching that ‘from the first moment of conception life must be guarded with the greatest care while abortion and infanticide are unspeakable crimes’.” He didn’t say that they might be “unspeakable crimes.” In case you don’t understand what those two words mean, they mean horrendously evil deeds.
The Archbishop gave you a way out. He wrote that all you have to do is to “publicly repudiate your advocacy for abortion ‘rights’ or else refrain from referring to your Catholic faith in public and receiving Holy Communion.”
The defiance you expressed for the Archbishop’s decision compounds your sin in my mind. You were quoted as saying “The very idea that they would be telling women the size, timing or whatever of their family, the personal nature of this is so appalling, and I say that as a devout Catholic. They say to me, ‘Nancy Pelosi thinks she knows more about having babies than the Pope.’ Yes I do. Are you stupid?” No ma’am you are the stupid one. Stupid because you have two easy ways out: give in and stop promoting the so-called right of abortion or declare that you are no longer a Catholic. It’s as simple as that.
The Archbishop says that he made “numerous attempts” to sit down with you to explain the “great evil” of your promotion of abortion. What are you afraid of? Why don’t you want to talk with him about this matter? Perhaps it is because you know he is right and that you are wrong. In a letter to church members, he explained that “After numerous attempts to speak with her to help her understand the grave evil she is perpetrating, the scandal she is causing, and the danger to her own soul she is risking, 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,”
But then, as your pal, that not so funny comedienne, that font of ecclesiastical knowledge who goes by the name of Whoopi Goldberg, tells us that the Archbishop is a fraud. She bravely came to your defense on TV, shouting out loud at the prelate: “This is not your job, dude! You can’t — that is not up to you to make that decision. You know, what is the saying? It’s kind of amazing. But, you know, what is the point of communion, right? It’s for sinners. It’s for sinners. It’s the reward of saints, but the bread of sinners. How dare you?”
Representative Pelosi, you claim to speak for the people of the United States but it appears you are the representative of those who commit murder. In other words, we see you as a facilitator who is aiding and abetting a heinous crime.
