Nancy Pelosi Denied Communion

Stalin’s strategy was to close down churches and send off priests and nuns to die in gulags, but his ideological heirs take a more insidious approach. They hollow out Christianity, retaining only the husk, replacing the actual content with leftist ideology. That way, churches are no longer challenges to government authority, but only meaningless social clubs, comprised of people who believe whatever is fashionable. No need to shut down any churches; they will just wither away from irrelevance.

Some Catholics are fighting back by affirming that their church does actually stand for something:

Nancy Pelosi is barred from receiving the Eucharist in the Archdiocese of San Francisco because of her efforts to codify federal protection for abortions, according to a May 20 statement from Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone.

“I must make a public declaration that [Pelosi] 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,” Cordileone wrote in a letter released Friday.

Archbishop Cordileone had repeatedly requested to meet with her, but Pelosi blew him off, offering an indication of how seriously she takes the faith.

The archbishop invoked canon 915 of the Code of the Canon Law, which says that Catholics who “obstinately persist” in “manifest grave sin” should not be admitted to the Eucharist.

Pelosi’s advocacy of abortion is extreme:

Pelosi has said that overturning Roe would be an “abomination” and that should the Supreme Court do so, it would be “one of the worst and most damaging decisions in modern history.” She and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) have led Democrats in support of a radical abortion bill that would wipe out state pro-life laws and dramatically expand abortion access by codifying Roe into federal law.

To allow a fiend like Pelosi to take communion makes a farce of the ritual. Let her attend services of the Satanic Temple; that would be consistent with her beliefs. Presenting herself as Catholic is blasphemy.

Excommunication would be more appropriate, but denying communion to someone who makes a mockery of Catholicism is at least a step in the right direction.

Meanwhile, at other churches,

A pro-LGBT organization is slated to host a conference for kids ages 12 to 18 at the Naples United Church of Christ in Florida on Saturday.

“GLSEN Collier is hosting the inaugural Youth Pride Conference in Naples, FL for all local LGBTQ youth ages 12-18,” a post about the event states. …

The event will include a drag show. …

One of the breakout sessions available for attendees will include, “Inclusive Sex Education,” featuring a presenter from Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, according to the conference description.

That is the alternative to standing firm and pushing back.
