Nancy “Karen” Pelosi asked to speak to the manager of the US bishops.
According to Fox News, when asked about the US bishops considering denying Communion to politicians who publicly advocate for the legality of abortion, she responded with “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?”
“It basically says don’t be divisive on the subject. Thank you,” Pelosi said before exiting the conference.
The sad truth is that the US bishops were never going to take a strong stand on this but to be undercut by the Vatican and then have Nancy Pelosi point to them is just awful.
