House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she has told Catholic cardinals, archbishops and bishops that she wants them to speak from the pulpit for immigration reform and tell Catholics who oppose it that reform “is a manifestation of our living the gospels.” -- Nicholas Ballasy“Hail Nancy full of disgrace the Catholic Church is not with you, Amen.”
According to the Pope Nancy Pelosi shouldn’t be receiving communion which means that she is not in good standing with the church. Last year the Pope issued an edict that any Catholic who supported abortion should not receive Holy Communion. I’m certain he told her so in their face to face meet last year in February. The Pope’s comments came last year as he was addressing the problem of politicians who claimed they are Catholic but support legislation that is immoral and anti-religious.
This conflict between the Church and American politicians became noteworthy after the election year of 2008 as many American politicians who claimed that they were Catholic openly challenged the Church’s teachings on abortion. Nancy Pelosi is one such American politician.
The Pope meant to break the Church’s years of silent regarding Catholic’s in politics who openly defy the Church’s moral imperatives. Recently Catholic politicians who would run for political office made it a practice to simply ignore or misrepresent Church’s teachings which they disagreed with in order to justify supporting immoral political positions related to the social issues of the day. (see article)
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has to be aware that she is not in good standing with the Church made even clearer after her meeting with the Holy Father last February 2009. Yet she disregarded the Papal rebuke and published her own rebellious version of what happened between her and Pope Benedict XVI.
It is against that background that Nancy Pelosi spoke at the Catholic Community Conference on Capitol Hill on May 6, Pelosi specifically referenced illegal immigrants in America , saying as a practical matter, “we can’t say to people, 12 million of you, ‘go back to wherever you came from or go to jail.’” Pelosi further instructed the conference saying she wants them to speak from the pulpit for immigration reform and tell Catholics who oppose it that reform “is a manifestation of our living the gospels.” (see story)

This is even a new low for Pelosi. Pelosi is a Liberal Progressive. Liberal Progressives usually champion so-called, “separation of church and state.” Yet Pelosi is so desperate she is attempting to gain a political advantage using religion.
Think about it, she is willing and has the impertinence to first show her face at a Catholic conference knowing full well she is not in good standing with the leader of the Catholic Church.
Then in spite of her open defiance against the church’s teachings Pelosi lends rebellious council to the Church’s holy men as if she is an authority of what the manifestation of the gospels is. Who does Nancy Pelosi think she is “Our Holy Lady of Congress”?
This is blasphemy. It is an outrage. To think that Nancy Pelosi would stoop to using the gospels of Jesus Christ which have been officially rejected by the American political class, especially by Liberal Progressives who support homosexuality and abortion in open defiance of the gospels, and then to attempt to employ the same gospels that Progressives abhor in a scheme to manipulate believers to vote against voter’s own interest is simply blasphemous!
Nancy Pelosi is not in good standing with her church and neither is she or Democrats in good standing with the American people.
Therefore Nancy Pelosi should be defrocked by the American people of her self-appointed position as “Our Holy Lady of Congress” as soon as the American people can cast our ballots before these Liberal Progressive Democrat swine in November.
