Priests to Pelosi: condemn abortion or leave the Church
Nancy Pelosi and others of her ilk often try to act as if their Catholic doctrine approves of abortion. It is absurd and everyone knows the Catholic Church vehemently opposes abortion as murder. So when Pelosi once again tried to tie her faith to approval for abortion Father Frank Pavone shot her down in a letter that demanded she either condemn abortion or leave the Catholic Church. Here’s part of what he said: “Abortion is not sacred ground; it is sacrilegious ground. To imagine God giving the slightest approval to an act that dismembers a child he created is offensive to both faith and reason,” Pavone wrote. “And to say that a question about the difference between a legal medical procedure and murder should not ‘have anything to do with politics’ reveals a profound failure to understand your own political responsibilities, which start with the duty to secure the God-given right to life of every citizen. Whatever Catholic faith you claim to respect and practice, it is not the faith that the Catholic Church teaches,” Pavone continued. “And I speak for countless Catholics when I say that it’s time for you to stop speaking as if it were.” Click here for original article.
