Pelosi goes to church, but then denies going rogue on public health regulations

American Wire

The publishers of Webster’s Dictionary, were they considering an illustrated version, perhaps could define “gall” with a simple artist’s rendering of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The 80-year-old San Francisco Democrat has offered enough insolence during 2020 to last most of us a lifetime.

For example, she’s blamed President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans for blocking COVID-19 relief, even as she refused to bring such bills up for consideration in the House. Meanwhile, as she was stalling that aid and millions of anxious Americans were suddenly jobless because of dubious lockdown strategies, she went on TV with CBS late-night host James Corden and showed off her $20,000-plus fridge, filled with $13-a-pint ice cream containers.

Then earlier this month, we learned that Her Speakerness violated California’s lockdown rules with a private trip to a beauty salon for a hair-do — and then blamed the salon owner for setting her up by releasing the security camera footage of her “do” process.

Now, Pelosi has audaciously dragged the Catholic Church into her shamelessness.

Last week Archbishop Salvatore Joseph Cordileone of San Francisco criticized government lockdown policies prohibiting large public gatherings as detrimental to his flock and afoul of freedom of religion.

“We Catholics respect legitimate authority, and we recognize that the government has a right to impose reasonable public health rules, just as we recognize its right to issue safety codes for our church buildings,” the archbishop wrote in part. “But when government asserts authority over the church’s very right to worship, it crosses a line.”

Cordileone also challenged the notion of whether attending church was a super-spreader event.

That was a claim the city made in June. 

San Francisco ended public Masses on March 17. Three months later, Cordileone encouraged people back to church in defiance of the regulation.

San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera subsequently chided the archbishop for churches’ flouting the rules. His letter noted that “indoor services with congregants continue to pose a serious public health risk and are consequently prohibited under the Health Order for the time being, with a narrow exception for funerals with 12 or fewer persons.”

Furthermore, the city’s policy on houses of worship allowed one person at a time inside the building, and that was just “for prayer, individual counseling, to pick up, or drop off items.”

At a new conference on Friday following Cordileone’s op-ed, Pelosi took the archbishop to task. “With all due respect to my archbishop,” she said, “I think we should follow science on this.”

“I don’t know if he was speaking as our pastor or as a lobbyist — advocate. But whatever it is, I am sure that he must have meant if it is scientifically safe, rather than jeopardizing people’s health if they want to go to church,” she added.

But Pelosi committed a gaffe — which in politicalspeak means she let the truth slip out.

When a Catholic News Agency correspondent asked Pelosi if churches should reopen with appropriate precautions, she admitted that she “recently” went to Mass in San Francisco and received Communion.

She said she had to sign up in advance. “They only had two places left, so fortunately I got in under the wire,” she said.

Once at the service, Pelosi added, “there were probably 12 people” present in a church that held 250 people. The dozen parishioners there were “very, very, very spaced,” the speaker told reporters.

Yet as CNA observed, “Pelosi’s answer suggested she may have violated standing health regulations herself.” 

That’s because she described an indoor service attended by more than one person that wasn’t a funeral. 

By Friday night, Pelosi’s office was in full spin mode.

Her spokesman claimed to CNA that she “misspoke.” Yet, CNA noted, he “did not explain what Pelosi referred to when she described … attending what appeared to be an indoor Mass and receiving Communion ‘recently’ at a San Francisco church.”

Pelosi might be all about following science, but rules not so much. In her mind, those are for thee but nor for me.

    Any Priest giving Pelosi the Blessed Sacrament is committing sacrilege.

    Doesn’t matter if she goes to church. She defies God with her actions everyday! Her heart isn’t in the sacrifice of the Mass! She just wants [the world to know she went to Mass. God forgive her.

    She has already been excommunicated by her own Bishop-meaning she cannot receive Holy Communion, nor any of the other Sacraments; she is so evil, she should not even be allowed to enter a Church!

    pelosi, you can’t repent through communion and then continue to sin. when you repent, you are having a change of mind. you never repented because you never changed your mind of the sins you committed

    Why would any Priest agree to hear her confession, give her absolution, and then allow her to accept the Body of Christ knowing full well her views and actions regarding abortion? If ever a person is in Mortal Sin, this woman is, and not eligible to receive communion. Case closed!

    I don’t know why she bothers as evil as she is. If she goes to church it is just for show! She can’t be Catholic and be pro-Abortion! Why don’t the church kick her out? Shame on you Pelosi!

    Pelosi is a member of the old tribe of self-righteous Victorians who admonished “inferiors” (this included children), “Do as I say, not as I do.” Obviously, this woman, perched high atop her elite pinnacle, believes and practices that the rules are in place to keep “inferiors” properly where they belong, working to pay her salary and benefits. Pshaw!

    Piglet Nancy Pelosi is just a disgusting vile liberal! She has continually lied and cheated for 40 years.

    I agree with some of the previous comment. How can the Catholic Church that Nancy Pelosi attends allow her to receive the Sacrament of Communion as she supports abortion. Joe Biden is in the same boat as he is Catholic as well. Someone needs to investigate this. Someone needs to get a comment from the Pope.
    Pelosi takes the “holier than thou ” attitude, when she is the biggest sinner. I hope she goes to confession and confesses her mortal sins

    With due respect. Mrs. Nancy Pelosi is not a practicing Catholic. It is against the Catholic Faith to support abortion except for medical reasons. She has supported all the Abortion actions going on in our country. God bless Amercca

    What a waste of space! You can not support killing babies and take Communion it is against everything God stands for. Does she read her Bible? You are suppose to remember what the bread and juice or wine stand for, Killing Babies is not part of that! She definitely needs to say seven times seventy Hail Mary’s for her sinnes!! She has committed a bunch!

    Nancy A true Christian does not support Same sex marriage and and true Christian does not support Abortion. There’s a difference between being religious and being born again. Repent before Christ Jesus & give your life to Him before it’s too late.

    I no longer serve as an EXTRA-ORDINARY-MINISTER in giving out Communion. For me, you stand for GOD or you are a FAKE. TOO MUCH OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH HAS MOVED AWAY FROM GOD’S BELIEFS AND HAS TURNED INTO A JOKE. JUST LIKE SUPREME COURT JUDGE GINSBURG WHO SUPPORTED ABORTION. HOW CLEAN ARE HER HANDS?
    YOU STAND FOR SOMETHING OR ARE YOU A WIMP?

    She is following the example of the communists in Russia. The elite of the Politburo get to do whatever they want. The rest of the serfs have to do without. Too bad for Nancy She believes the lies that the Catholics put out that she will get into heaven IF she follows their demands for mass attendance, confession to a priest instead of to ‘God and all the other ways, they control weak minded people.

    Pelosi is a disgrace to our country. She has supported the violence and divisive politics. Her so leadership is nothing short of incompetent. Her hatred of Trump is not justified and is proof that the Democrats are now Communist inspired garbage.

    That thing that parades around trying to play holier than thou is nothing but a hypocrite!!!!
    She doesn’t even believe in the constitution, that is why she’s trying to destroy us. What she doesn’t realize is that any goes if President Trump get re-elected. Guess what nancy, the Patriots of this country have had enough of you, and we will come to the President aid!!

    Is there anyone with just a bit of intelligence who believes even one word what Crazy Nancy says? Pelosi wants the public to believe she is a religious, God-fearing woman, but when she enters a church and takes communion, that is a sign of heresy. There are only twothings in life that Pelosi cares about: Money and Power. She will sink to any level for money or power. She is an 80-year old waste of human life. If she really wanted to do something positive for her city, state, and the United States, she would totally abandon her political life and get her old ass away from Washington, D.C.
