You absolutely can not make this stuff up.
Lest you think you're immune if you're not Catholic, you had better take a hard look at whatever church you attend. Does your church promote "social justice", prosperity gospel, or celebrate homosexuality?
The article calls Ms Pelosi "one of the country's most powerful Catholic politicians" which is ludicrous. There is a big difference between a lapsed Catholic and a Catholic in good standing. Pelosi publicly advocates forHouse Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi took the lead this week in a high-profile lobbying effort to pressure San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone not to attend the controversial March for Marriage event, which she characterized as "venom masquerading as virtue."
Pelosi, who is one of the country's most powerful Catholic politicians, made a passionate appeal to the archbishop in a letter obtained by The Chronicle not to participate in the National Organization for Marriage's June 19 march on the Supreme Court in Washington.
Cordileone, who is one of the featured speakers at the event, was a leader in the campaign for Proposition 8, the 2008 California anti-gay-marriage initiative.
"We share our love of the Catholic faith and our city of San Francisco," Pelosi wrote to Cordileone, who, as head of the 560,000-member Archdiocese of San Francisco, has become the Catholic bishops' point man against gay marriage. She urged him to abandon an event in which some of the participants show "disdain and hate towards LGBT persons."
Invoking the words of Pope Francis with regard to gays and lesbians, she wrote, "If someone is gay and is searching for the Lord and has good will, then who am I to judge him?" read it all
Notice how Ms Pelosi suggests that if you think marriage is only between a man and a woman, you are showing "disdain and hate towards LGBT persons." Yet she invokes the out-of-context words of Pope Francis to say "who are we to judge."
Back at ya, Nancy.
I can well imagine Archbishop Cordileone, a very smart man of considerable charm and grace, "laughing his you know what" off.
