Over the years, newly installed Pope Francis has been a staunch defender of life.
When the Pope was just Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Archbishop of Buenos Aires, he spoke clearly and without hesitation that “abortion is never a solution.”
Bergoglio’s view is that abortion is a “death sentence” for the unborn. In 2007, during the presentation of the Aparecida Document, a “joint statement of the bishops of Latin America,” Bergoglio said about communion and abortion that “Eucharistic coherence” was something that should be adhered to.
At that time the Pope said this:
People cannot receive Holy Communion and at the same time act or speak against the commandments, in particular when abortion, euthanasia, and other serious crimes against life and family are facilitated. This responsibility applies particularly to legislators, governors, and health professionals.
In other words, politicians and healthcare providers who are Catholic cannot support anti-life policies and then throw on a mantilla and strut up to the altar to receive communion, in defiance of both God and church teachings.
When the white smoke finally came puffing out of the chimney at the Vatican, what seemed to set the intellectual Jesuit chosen to replace Benedict XVI apart was his dedication to the poor and his unassuming nature. Yet the widely celebrated news, at least by those in the Christian community, was that Pope Francis condemned prochoice Catholics who defy church teachings and continue to partake of the Eucharist.
Good thing he did, because in the first letter to the Corinthians, Chapter 11 verses 27 through 29, the Apostle Paul warns about “sinning against the body and blood of the Lord” when he said:
So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink from the cup. For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves.
With those words in mind, the new pope’s condemnation of abortion became worldwide news. Yet, two prominent American dignitaries who’ve fashioned their own version of Catholicism apparently didn’t get the memo. Like two homosexuals donating blood, Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden, both of whom are Catholic, pro-choice, and regular partakers of the body and blood of Christ, paid no heed to Francis’s Eucharistic edict.
Representing the unfettered slaughter of 4,000 babies a day, Nancy Pelosi, adorned in a lace head veil, and Joseph Robinette Biden wearing his best communion suit sans the white socks and white patent leather communion loafers, flew to Rome for the installation of the new pontiff in St Peter’s Square.
Defying “Eucharistic coherence,” the two prominent anti-life legislators, who’ve made it a religion to defy God, disregarded Francis’s wishes, got in line, and in an “unworthy manner” sashayed up to the communion rail and sinned “against the body and blood of the Lord.”
The only explanation is that before eating the bread and drinking from the cup, despite Francis’s opinion, Nancy and Joe deluded themselves into believing that God is prochoice and abortion a perfectly acceptable activity. Either that or the hypocritical twosome couldn’t care less that Almighty God and the Pope disapprove of supporting Planned Parenthood on Saturday morning and then partaking of Holy Communion at Sunday mass.
Speaking of the new pope, while Pelosi and Biden were making the sign of the cross, was Pope Francis unconscious? Did he not say that abortion is “never a solution” and is a “death sentence” and a “death penalty” for the unborn? Isn’t he the man who challenged colleagues to “be conscious that people cannot receive communion and at the same time act or speak against the commandments, in particular when abortion, euthanasia, and other serious crimes against life and family are facilitated?”
What happened over in Rome? Did ‘Eucharistic incoherence’ rear its ugly head and deliver Nancy and Joe a “Bless me father for I have not sinned” pass? The pontiff, who everyone thought would deny communion to two people who should be excommunicated, did nothing to stop the two pseudo-Catholics from flouting the guidelines he, as Archbishop of Buenos Aires, made plain.
So, abortion advocates Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden flew out to Rome to prove to Pope Francis that he couldn’t restrict their access to communion – and he didn’t.
Not only that, but by appearing with a smiling Pope Francis, the Vice President and the House Minority leader, without saying one word, managed to diminish the pope’s solid pro-life stance.
Meanwhile, based on her headgear, Nancy Pelosi clearly believes that wearing a mantilla to church somehow compensates for the holocaust she supports. Wrong!
