Dear American Catholic Bishops:

Please excommunicate Nancy Pelosi.

We can no longer excuse Pelosi on the grounds that she’s pig ignorant regarding the teachings of the Church. She is pig ignorant, granted, but that is quite clearly a deliberate choice on her part. By now, she has been given plenty of opportunities to receive correct catechesis; indeed, she was recently chastised by none other than the Holy Father himself regarding the Church’s clear and ancient position on life issues. Yet despite this instruction, Pelosi persists in her heretical support of abortion, contraception, and sterilization. This is a scandal that wounds the American Church as a whole.

Pelosi emphatically does not have a right to publicly claim a Catholic identity. Such an identity must be earned by one’s obedience to the Magisterium. Our Church is not a country club in which you can choose to enjoy the pool but not the golf course. It’s a package deal — and if Pelosi can’t handle that, she should be encouraged to do the honorable thing and leave.

Sincerely,
Stephanie S.

  1. Most recently? Her idiotic claim that the Catholic dioceses and institutions who recently filed 43 lawsuits against the contraception mandate don't speak for the Church as a whole. Sorry, Nancy dear, but those folks are more in line with the Church than you are.

  2. Well…that certainly makes Pelosi look like an idiot in the eyes of practicing Catholics. Essentially, she's saying, “The leadership of the Catholic Church doesn't speak for all of its members…I have just as much of a voice as they do.” That is EXCEEDINGLY presumptuous.

    But…I don't know if it amounts to heretical teaching in the name of the Church, which is the offense that should get someone excommunicated.

  3. But as you know, Pelosi has used her power as a politician to offer support to the practitioners of abortion, contraception, and sterilization — and she has done this while claiming to be a practicing Catholic. That is heresy.

    Really, her recent idiocy was just the straw that broke the camel's back. She – and others of her ilk – should've been excommunicated a long time ago.

  4. And by the way, I'm not trying to be spiteful. Excommunication is not meant to be a permanent punishment. If Pelosi were excommunicated, she would be able to repent and return at any time.
