This doesn’t really make any sense at all.
The thing about a religion is: you’re supposed to follow it. It isn’t some a la carte mix and match enterprise. YOU don’t get to decide what is right, God and religious texts decide.
That’s the whole point behind following a spiritual code or a religion.
Nancy Pelosi can’t seem to understand this, and she has flaunted this in front of the cameras.
This is in response to a reporter asking her about her public stance on abortion vs that of the Catholic faith to which Pelosi reportedly claims to be an adherent of.
Sources indicate that Catholic Biships will gather next month to review and vote on guidelines for communion, and this may or may not cause the excommunication of pro-choice politicians.
If it does then no one should be suprised that Nancy Pelosi is no longer considered Catholic by The Catholic Church.
Take a look:
Fox News reported on Pelosi's words:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dismissed Catholic bishops who do not believe she should receive Communion due to her views on abortion.
"I think I can use my own judgment on that but I'm pleased with what the Vatican put out on that subject. Did you read that?" Pelosi, D-Calif., told a reporter at her weekly press conference.
"It basically says don't be divisive on the subject. Thank you," Pelosi said before exiting the conference.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops will convene for a national meeting next month, with plans to vote on drafting guidelines for Communion. Some bishops have been pressing for President Biden and other public figures who support abortion to be excluded from the sacrament.
The head of the Vatican’s doctrine office issued a warning to the conference to deliberate carefully to avoid sowing division.
Western Journal had this to say:
While division in the church is lamentable, sometimes following Christ means telling sinners what they may not want to hear.
We cannot water down Christianity so as not to offend people or bend the teachings of the Bible to fit the backward trends of modernity.
What’s more, Pelosi’s suggestion that she can decide for herself whether her actions are compatible with her faith turns her into a church of one. If only God can judge, then let him. We do not get to decide what is and is not a sin.
Pelosi’s rhetoric effectively puts her in the place of God. But she doesn’t make the rules — he does.
Being a Christian involves correcting sinful behavior and beliefs, not justifying them. We must change rather than demand the church give way to our sin.
Barring abortion supporters from partaking in communion is a reflection of this hard truth.
