House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at a weekly press conference.
Womanbishop Suzanne Avison Thiel of Roman Catholic Womenpriests Western Region Speaks out Regarding Nancy Pelosi Being Denied Holy Communion by
Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone.
Cordileone's reference to Pelosi's pro-choice position is nothing more than an old, medieval, punitive and bigoty chastisement--the political weapon of denying Communion is never acceptable and simply put is not what Jesus taught. When will the male Catholic clergy wake up and recognize the majority of Catholic women and their rights over their own bodies? We in the Roman Catholic Women Priest movement welcome all to our Communion tables and we invite Pelosi to visit us at one of our three worshiping communities in the San Francisco Bay area where we will be glad to offer her Communion.
