Priests Tell Pro-Abortion Pelosi to Renounce Catholicism
Priests for Life slammed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi in an open letter this week, telling her to “either exercise [her] duties as a public servant and a Catholic, or have the honesty to formally renounce them.”
The harsh words came after Pelosi blasted a reporter for asking the “moral difference” between a late-term abortion and the murder of a viable baby after birth. Pelosi responded, not by answering the question, but by accusing the reporter of having an “agenda” and not being sincerely interested in an answer.
“Public servants are supposed to be able to tell the difference between serving the public and killing the public. Apparently, you can't,” National Director Fr. Frank Pavone wrote.
The last straw for Priests for Life seemed to be Pelosi’s comment during a June 13 press briefing: "As a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this. I don't think it should have anything to do with politics."
