Pelosi Denounces Catholic Church for Having Catholic Beliefs

Speaker Nancy Pelosi may be only 82 years old, but she learns something new every day.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pushed back Tuesday on the decision by San Francisco’s conservative Catholic archbishop to deny her Communion over her support of abortion rights, saying she respects that people have opposing views but not when they impose them on others.

Like the way that Democrat administrations tried to force nuns to provide birth control? Or forced Catholic hospitals, physicians, and pharmacists to violate their beliefs?

Pelosi doesn't have to belong to the Catholic Church. It's a voluntary arrangement. And the Church doesn't have to let someone who violates its beliefs take part.

“I respect people’s views about that. But I don’t respect us foisting it onto others.” Pelosi added, “Our archbishop has been vehemently against LGBTQ rights. In fact, he led the way in an initiative on the ballot in California.”

Please, tell us more.

Pelosi said women and families need to know this is about more than abortion. “These same people are against contraception, family planning, in vitro fertilization. It’s a blanket thing and they use abortion as the frontman for it.”

It's almost like these "people" are... Catholic.

I'm not Catholic and I'm reasonably familiar with these beliefs. What's Pelosi's excuse?
