Pelosi, the Bishops and Tekel
For years faithful Catholics have been urging the excommunication of the Lying Worthless Political Hack, aka Nancy Pelosi House Minority Leader. Such pleas have fallen on deaf ears. Now the Lying Worthless Political Hack believes that she can bully the Archbishop of her city, San Francisco, and she quotes Pope Francis while doing so. Father Z gives us the details:
Nancy Pelosi urges S.F. archbishop to exit marriage march
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi took the lead this week in a high-profile lobbying effort to pressure San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone not to attend the controversial March for Marriage event, which she characterized as “venom masquerading as virtue.”
Pelosi, who is one of the country’s most powerful [pro-abortion absolutist] Catholic politicians, made a passionate appeal to the archbishop in a letter obtained by The Chronicle not to participate in the National Organization for Marriage’s June 19 march on the Supreme Court in Washington.
Cordileone, who is one of the featured speakers at the event, was a leader in the campaign for Proposition 8, the 2008 California anti-gay-marriage initiative.
“We share our love of the Catholic faith and our city of San Francisco,” Pelosi wrote to Cordileone, who, as head of the 560,000-member Archdiocese of San Francisco, has become the Catholic bishops’ point man against gay marriage. She urged him to abandon an event in which some of the participants show “disdain and hate towards LGBT persons.” [If that’s what Pelosi says, you can be sure the event is exactly the opposite.]
Invoking the words of Pope Francis with regard to gays and lesbians, she wrote, “If someone is gay and is searching for the Lord and has good will, then who am I to judge him?” [?!?…. and?]
The goal of the second annual March for Marriage is to draw thousands of supporters of what they call “traditional marriage” [you can almost hear the sneer…. “what they call…”] to walk from the U.S Capitol to the Supreme Court. Conservative former presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, as well as Cordileone, are being billed as the star speakers.
Is there some initiative out there in support of Archbp. Cordileone? I am itching to create an ACTION ITEM.
Can. 915 needs to be applied to this scandalous wreck of a Catholic.
Go here to read the rest. Since 2008 I have been documenting the spitting on the teaching of the Catholic Church by the Lying Worthless Political Hack. Go here to read the prior posts. The bishops in this country, by and large, have been derelict in failing to call to account anti-Catholic Catholics in public office like Pelosi. Whether out of private attachment to the Democrat party, cowardice, indifference, private agreement or some other cause, the majority of bishops have adopted a policy of de facto tolerance for Catholics like Pelosi who take every opportunity to fight against what the Church teaches in regard to such issues as abortion and homosexuality. With Pope Francis, creatures like Pelosi think they can lecture the Church with impunity. Do not think for a minute that they will hesitate to use the power of the State to coerce the Church where they have the power to do so. People like Pelosi are despicable, but far worse are the vast majority of bishops in this country who through their silence over the years have allowed her and her ilk to undermine the teachings of the Church among the faithful and to pave the way for a persecution of the Church. God might well repeat to most of our bishops the words of Daniel 5:27: Tekel: thou art weighed in the balance, and art found wanting.
