In an astonishing challenge to traditional Catholic doctrine, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, nominally Catholic, has taken to telling San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone that he should not attend the National Organization for Marriage’s June 19 march on the Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

Cordileone is scheduled to be a featured speaker at the event, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, which is consistent with his championing of Proposition 8 in 2008. Cordileone helped raise $1.5 million for the initiative, which intended to ban same-sex marriage in the state. He once said, "The ultimate attack of the evil one is the attack on marriage."

Pelosi, who called the event “venom masquerading as virtue," wrote to Cordileone, "We share our love of the Catholic faith and our city of San Francisco," adding that the event would feature some participants displaying "disdain and hate towards LGBT persons,” and asserting, "If someone is gay and is searching for the Lord and has good will, then who am I to judge him?"

The March for Marriage, which was initiated last year, features thousands of people standing up for "traditional marriage" walking from the U.S Capitol to the Supreme Court. Among the speakers are Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum.

Pelosi is not the only Democratic San Francisco politician sending Cordileone a letter decrying his participation in the march. Last week, San Francisco mayor Ed Lee and California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsome issued a joint letter to the bishop protesting his participation. In the letter, cited by the Chronicle's Carla Marinucci, they wrote: "We ask that you will reconsider your participation and join us in seeking to promote reconciliation rather than division and hatred …” They said the march was “organized by some of the nation's most virulently anti-LGBT organizations and leaders.”

The National Organization of Marriage was also targeted by the federal government in the IRS scandal.

An online petition demanding that Cordileone cease and desist in his plans has been signed by roughly 20,000 people.

Cordileone is the head of the Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage for the U.S. Conference of Bishops. He has already referred to the March as "an important means to promote and defend marriage for the good of our culture, to pray for our federal and state governments, and to stand in solidarity with people of good will,” adding, "This is a critical time for marriage in our country, as marriage amendments are being struck down by federal courts and appeals of these decisions are being made."

What nerve.

The gay lobby has co-opted nearly every politician, and is working like mad to engrain in the culture that opposition to gay marriage is bigotry.    Churches and individuals which find homosexual activity to be contrary to belief (in the same way that fornication and adultery is contrary to belief) will be targeted as "haters." 

Toleration is not something practiced by the gay lobby and their sycophants.  And it's going to get much worse, friends.

No passage of Scripture is more misused - and misinterpreted - than the "judge not" one.

Ohhhh, she warned him. He ought to just go ahead and ex-communicate Nancy Pelosi, because she is one sorry excuse of a Catholic.

Fascism by any other name.

Why by any other name?  It is fascism and it is the current American form of governance.

Nancy Pelosi Attacks Archbishop over 'Traditional Marriage'

Nancy Pelosi Attacks Archbishop over 'Traditional Marriage'


Posted 17 hours ago by Gary DeMar Filed under Christianity, Ethics, Homosexuality, Morality, Political Correctness, Religion



What’s the Catholic Church waiting for? Nancy Pelosi claims to be a Roman Catholic, and yet she supports abortion on demand and same-sex everything. She should have been excommunicated a long time ago.

If her past record wasn’t enough evidence to pull the plug on her Catholicism, her latest blasphemy doesn’t give the church much room for tolerance:
 



“In an astonishing challenge to traditional Catholic doctrine, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, nominally Catholic, has taken to telling San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone that he should not attend the National Organization for Marriage’s June 19 march on the Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

“Cordileone is scheduled to be a featured speaker at the event, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, which is consistent with his championing of Proposition 8 in 2008. Cordileone helped raise $1.5 million for the initiative, which intended to ban same-sex marriage in the state. He once said, ‘The ultimate attack of the evil one is the attack on marriage.’

“Pelosi, who called the event ‘venom masquerading as virtue,’ wrote to Cordileone, ‘We share our love of the Catholic faith and our city of San Francisco,’ adding that the event would feature some participants displaying ‘disdain and hate towards LGBT persons,’ and asserting, ‘If someone is gay and is searching for the Lord and has good will, then who am I to judge him?’

“The March for Marriage, which was initiated last year, features thousands of people standing up for ‘traditional marriage’ walking from the U.S Capitol to the Supreme Court. Among the speakers are Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum.”

Don’t you just love Pelosi’s sanctimonious religiosity?: “If someone is gay and is searching for the Lord and has good will, then who am I to judge him?”
 



Someone seeking the Lord would obey the Lord, and obeying the Lord means to stop engaging in same-sex sexuality.

On her claim of “who am I to judge?” Isn’t she judging Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone and everyone else who has taken a position on same-sex sexuality on the clear testimony of Scripture, a system of ethics she claims to obey?

Pelosi says she believes she must pursue public policies “in keeping with the values” of Jesus Christ, “The Word made Flesh.” At a May 6, 2010 Catholic Community Conference on Capitol Hill, she said: “They ask me all the time, ‘What is your favorite this? What is your favorite that?’ And one time, ‘What is your favorite word?’ And I said, ‘My favorite word? That is really easy. My favorite word is the Word, is the Word. And that is everything. It says it all for us. And you know the biblical reference, you know the Gospel reference of the Word.”

Not judging is a one-way street with liberals.

By the way, nowhere does the Bible say never to judge. Jesus calls for consistency in judgment (Matt. 7:1-2). We are not to judge “according to appearance” but to “judge with righteous judgment” (John 7:24).

If the Church leadership does no excommunicate her (and some others like Andrew Cuomo), then it’s time to pull up stakes, sell the church’s assets, and given the proceeds to the poor.
