: San Francisco archbishop bars Speaker
Nancy Pelosi from Holy Communion

Original Article

Posted By: GustoGrabber, 5/20/2022 4:55:06 PM

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has been barred from receiving Holy Communion in the Archdiocese of San Francisco because of her increasingly "extreme" position on abortion, Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone announced Friday. In a "letter to the faithful," the archbishop wrote that after repeated attempts to speak with Pelosi and persuade her to adhere to the Catholic Church's teaching that life begins at conception and abortion is a sin, he has determined to place her under public church discipline.

Sadly, I'm afraid the affirmative action Cardinal Archbishop of Washington (D.C.) will not do the same thing.

For the code of Bishops they are not to override a ruling of another. A bishop before could say he never got the notice from another Diocese, but in the age of telephone and yellow journalism they can't deny it. The DC Bishop will have to be the one to formally tell Nancy when she comes through the door. Smart move from the S.F. Bishop.

She is a representative in the House via being elected in her district - San Francisco. It will be interesting to see how this works out. She is near her expiration date here on earth. Her status in the Church may matter to her. Or not.

That’s great, Archbishop, but you lost me at, “Her advocacy for the care of the poor and vulnerable elicits my admiration.” There is no one more poor or vulnerable than an unborn baby. She has no love for the poor or vulnerable, she loves whatever keeps her elected, rich, and powerful. You, sir, are a day late and a dollar short. I say that as a cradle Catholic.

Nancy Pelosi has been ex-communicated at least temporarily in her home diocese. Yes, that's ex-communicated. Communicants receive the Blessed Sacrament. Those who once received Holy Communion, but are now barred, are considered EX-communicants. Finally a bishop with a pair of nads!

She escalated her rhetoric in the last few years, and her pursuit of codifying Roe v. Wade's outcome into national legislation since the SCOTUS opinion draft leak has ranged from vigorous to obstinate. Abp. Salvatore tried several times to contact her recently to discuss the matter, and each time was either ignored or rebuffed. This is not a penal matter -- her own words and actions have made it abundantly clear that her relationship with the Catholic Church is adversarial, so she is not to identify herself as Catholic any more and should not present herself for Communion. Our parish received his announcements about 2 hours ago. She's been practically daring the Church to do this for years. So I reckon this falls into the 'bout damn time category.

FTA: "Speaker Pelosi remains our sister in Christ. Her advocacy for the care of the poor and vulnerable elicits my admiration". Christ told each of us to help the poor, He did not say we could outsource it to our government. When you are using other people's money, it is not charity.

If an administration deliberately wished to cause havoc on the border, to ensure fuel was nearly unaffordable, to create a crime wave, to spark 1970s hyperinflation, and to rekindle racial tensions, what would it have done differently than what Joe Biden has done? So is Biden malicious, incompetent, or a wannabe left-wing ideologue? When pressed about inflation and fuel price hikes, Biden either blames someone or something else, gets mad at the questioner, or claims Donald Trump did it. His administration apparently believes things are going well and according to plan.

As a longtime teacher, I have seen firsthand that education is a fad-filled field. Culturally responsive education, inventive spelling, new math, experiential learning, balanced literacy, etc. are educational styles that have come and gone and come and gone and . . . One of the more enduring educational whims is Social Emotional Learning (SEL) which took off in the 1990s when the Collaborative to Advance Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) came into being, and hosted a conference with researchers, educators, child advocates, and others in the field.

caught up recently with Vanity Fair’s in-depth feature on “the New Right.” At one point, writer James Pogue interviewed neoreactionary Curtis Yarvin, who is quoted saying some provocative things. I fully agree with Yarvin’s gibes about the autocratic oligarchy that stifles dissent, his sneering at the media as “predators,” and his recognition that it may take a Caesar-like leader to pull us out of our present decadence. But Yarvin also made a statement with which I profoundly disagree. My disagreement may explain why, unlike Yarvin, I am never invited to address conservative conferences. Although I sound less edgy, I may in fact be more serious about pursuing the culture war.

"If he were recognized by Trump supporters there, there was a good chance he would be harassed," New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns wrote. Former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort is also in Palm Beach.

never heard my friend William F. Buckley, Jr., opine about the merits or deficiencies of “populism.” But I often heard him discourse about the virtues of liberty and the political, social, and moral liabilities of the Left-liberal consensus. In my view, what we call “populism” was an important ingredient in liberty as WFB understood it. That was the point of one of his most famous mots. “I’d rather be governed by the first 2,000 names in the Boston telephone directory,” he said, “than by the 2,000 people on the faculty of Harvard University.” Was this wealthy and sophisticated gadfly pulling our leg?

The reaction by some to Donald Trump’s endorsement of Dr. Mehmet Oz in the U.S. Senate race in Pennsylvania seems a bit over the top. I mean, I get it on some levels: Oz isn’t great on the issues, isn’t a conservative rockstar (as if Pennsylvania produces any), and is an unknown commodity in electoral politics (see Trump, Donald J., circa 2015). But everyone needs to take a deep breath and understand that Oz is 10 times better than former hedgefund CEO Dave McCormick. And in Trump’s mind, maybe 50 times better. If you’re Trump, you have political capital.

Hillary Clinton approved an effort to leak allegations that Donald Trump was colluding with Russia via Alfa Bank, according to her 2016 presidential campaign manager, Robby Mook, who testified Friday in federal court in Washington, DC. The Alfa Bank allegations were later disproven, as was the broader “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory that they supported. (snip) As the New York Post notes, Mook also discussed the Alfa Bank allegations with Clinton aide Jake Sullivan. Sullivan played a key role in misleading reporters and Congress about “Russia collusion,” telling the House Intelligence Committee in 2017 that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn had colluded with Russia. Sullivan now has Flynn’s former position.

The Biden administration privately acknowledged late last month that a mathematical error is delaying the federal government’s offshore oil and gas program. In an April 29 letter to industry leaders obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation, the head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says that a subagency “discovered a miscalculation” that has caused a massive backlog in permitting. Richard Spinrad acknowledged in his letter that the National Marine Fisheries Service—the subagency tasked with analyzing the impact of offshore drilling projects on wildlife—has used faulty computer modeling on such impacts. As a result, Spinrad wrote, the subagency overestimated wildlife effects, delaying permitting on existing leases.
