Pope Grants Audience To Pro-Abortion Nancy Pelosi
Pope Grants Audience To Pro-Abortion Nancy Pelosi
Occasionally, two people meet and you can feel the evil hypocrisy coming through the photos and videos. This was the case when Pope Francis granted a private audience to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. In these two people, we see people of power and privilege. Two people who live in the most royal of fashions, but lecture the rest of us on how to live.
Nancy Pelosi was in Rome for the G20 Parliamentary Leaders summit. Although there had been rumors that Nancy had been heckled out of St. Patrick’s Church in Rome, this turned out not to be true. The true story is not much better. Security removed Mrs. Pelosi from St. Patrick’s because a nearby Covid vaccination protest turned violent. I thought only Trump supporters objected to the vaccine. Who knew there were so many Trumpers in Rome? That was sarcasm, for the humor challenged.
San Fran Nan was very proud last month that the Democrats passed legislation to enable women to murder their children in the womb. The Supreme Court of the United States had refused to strike down the Texas law that stops abortion after six weeks. Nancy is pro-woman, doncha know:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said that congressional action would make a “tremendous difference” in Democrats’ efforts to maintain access to abortion rights. She called the Supreme Court’s decision “shameful” and counter to its own precedent.
Pelosi said just ahead of Friday’s vote that it should “send a very positive message to the women of our country — but not just the women, to the women and their families, to everyone who values freedom, honors our Constitution and respects women.”
Abortion doesn’t respect the women it kills. Killing a human without a trial does nothing to establish justice. I doubt Nancy remembers what’s in the Constitution, if she ever knew in the first place.
Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco asked Nancy’s fellow parishioners to say the Rosary and pray for Nan to have a conversion of the heart:
“A conversion of heart of the majority of our congressional representatives is needed on this issue, beginning with the leader of the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi. I am therefore inviting all Catholics to join in a massive and visible campaign of prayer and fasting for Speaker Pelosi: commit to praying one rosary a week and fasting on Fridays for her conversion of heart.”
The problem for Archbishop Cordileone is that he presupposes that Nancy Pelosi has a heart. It’s difficult to believe the female has a heart when she cites her Catholic faith as a reason to support abortion, as she does in this video:
Nancy repeated that she had five children in six years twice. Then, she says she was blessed. Hmmm. One might think she resented having five children in six years at the time. Her attitude towards poorer women is so condescending. Health education and family assistance might be more beneficial to them rather than murdering their unborn.
Pope Francis’s and the Catholic Church’s own statements regarding abortion are anathema to Nan’s beliefs:
For his part, Pope Francis has insisted that abortion is “murder” and that abortionists are like “hit men” who are paid to assassinate those deemed inconvenient.
The Catholic Church teaches that abortion is a grave moral evil and attaches its severest penalty of automatic excommunication for those who participate in it.
“Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion,” declares the Catechism of the Catholic Church. “This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable.”
“Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law,” it adds.
The Catechism also notes the evil committed by those who “formally cooperate” in abortion, such as those who promote its legality or seek to expand abortion rights.
“Formal cooperation in an abortion constitutes a grave offense,” the Catechism states. “The Church attaches the canonical penalty of excommunication to this crime against human life.”
If the Pope were to change Nancy’s questionable heart on abortion, that would be a miracle that might convince my Catholic friends that Pope Francis is really a Catholic. My Catholic friends believe that Francis is more Socialist than Catholic.
TRT World shares those concerns:
The Pope, an Argentinian citizen, who is the first non-European pope in the last 1000 years of papacy, has been known for his reformist ideas and practices, including a public empathy toward the Liberation theology, which has some clear connections with socialist ideas.
“The marketplace by itself cannot resolve every problem, however much we are asked to believe this dogma of neoliberal faith,” Pope Francis wrote, criticising neoliberalism, the latest form of capitalist theory, in his encyclical, an ancient term to refer to popes’ circulating letters.
But Francis’ criticism was not limited to neoliberalism in his latest address, which he called Fratelli Tutti or Brothers All. He also targeted the untouchable notion of private property, which is one of the core principles of capitalism.
“The Christian tradition has never recognised the right to private property as absolute or inviolable and has stressed the social purpose of all forms of private property,” he wrote.
That’s so weird. What does the Tenth Commandment mean then:
“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”
Hypocrisy. That’s was the Pope and the Speaker have in common. I remember that Francis didn’t move into the luxurious Papal Apartment. He stayed in his two-room apartment. Yet, he still lives in splendor in the Vatican, while the poor are all around him in Rome. Nancy, a public servant, lives in splendor thanks to her husband’s investments (right?), while the poor are all around her in San Francisco.
Since the Pope probably didn’t try to change Nan’s questionable heart on abortion, maybe the two hypocrites discussed luxury ice cream brands.
