Pelosi says she will use ‘own judgment’ as Catholic bishops consider denying communion to pro-abortion politicians

Amid a growing push among conservative Catholic clergy to deny Holy Communion to elected officials who support abortion, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) defiantly told reporters on Thursday that she can and will use her “own judgment” on the subject, as Breitbart reports.

The speaker’s comments came in response to a journalist’s question about a recent move by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to prepare a document designed to address “the situation of Catholics in public office who support legislation allowing abortion, euthanasia and other moral evils.”

When asked what she thought about the bishops’ deliberation about possibly denying Holy Communion to politicians who promote abortion and euthanasia through legislation, she curtly replied, “I think I can use my own judgment on that.”

Pelosi added that she was “pleased with what the Vatican put out on that subject,” referencing a May 7 letter from the leader of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith which cautioned that Conference of Catholic Bishops that any formal policy declaration must be preceded by dialogue among bishops and then between those clerics and Catholic politicians who may be affected by such a change, as NPR noted.

The debate over whether pro-abortion politicians in the United States should be permitted to receive Holy Communion has grown increasingly contentious in recent months, and bishops in this country are sharply divided on the question.

Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of Pelosi’s own hometown of San Francisco has voiced his opposition to lawmakers such as the speaker participating in the sacrament, saying, “If you find that you are unwilling or unable to abandon your advocacy for abortion, you should not come forward to receive Holy Communion,” according to Fox News.

However, Bishop Robert McElroy of San Diego has stepped forth with a contrary opinion, lamenting that in his view, “the Eucharist is being weaponized and deployed as a tool in political warfare,” as NPR noted.

President Joe Biden is among the pro-abortion politicians who could be impacted by the outcome of this battle within the Catholic Church, though the archbishop of Washington, D.C., Cardinal Wilton Gregory, has already stated his unwillingness to deny the commander in chief participation in Holy Communion.

Whether the Catholic hierarchy in this country will come to some agreement on this highly contentious issue remains to be seen, but it comes as no surprise that Pelosi feels free to publicly advocate for policies that directly contradict teachings of the church to which she simultaneously claims devotion.

  10. On our Final Judgement Day each of us will Face God’s “Own Judgement on those that supported Pro-Abortion Policies” as well as other sins we did not confess & ask forgiveness of. As for the taking of the “Sacrament” it is my feeling that if the person takes of the sacrament while supporting abortions then they are committing an Unforgiveable SIN against our Biblical Scriptures. As is the person administering the Sacrament.

  12. Thus demonstrating her wild arrogance. What the old sot is saying is that her “communion” comes out of her OWN bottle which the witch has blessed. Her arrogance allows no real perception of how funny and unrealistic that is.

    1. Imagine DEFYING GOD……………… She was damned before she was ever born. Who cares… she is a devil and should be EXCOMMUNICATED from MY CHURCH !

    2. SHE IS A HERETIC ! They would have STONED her centuries ago… and rightfully so. She commits a MORTAL SIN every time she opens her filthy destructive mouth BEARING FALSE WITNESS against anyone that she HATES… SHE HAS DESTROYED MORE GOOD HUMAN BEINGS than MOST DICTATORS HAVE. She is doomed for hell.

    3. She already defied her Constitutional oath, she defied her allegiance to America and the people she serves,. Defying her religion and her God is certainly no big deal to the likes of her. She likely considers she IS God.
