    We need to pray for a change of heart for these politicians that claim to be Catholic and go against the teaching of the Catholic Church. Where did they get their instruction for their faith? It is about time the Bishops publically admonish these people who are our leaders. We are to defend our faith. Our country will not survive if we stay on this path. WAKE UP AMERICA.

    I wish the archbishop of San Francisco would declare that she should not receive Holy Communion and order all priests to refuse to give Him to her. She should also be threatened with excommunication. She is the third highest ranking person in our government and cannot get away with saying this.

    It's time for the Council of Catholic Bishops to unite to ask Nancy Pelosi to repent and change her position and if she doesn't all that is left is excommunication is in order. Catholic politicians have had it both ways for too long. It's time to call Kennedy, Kerry, Bidden et al to account for the scandal they cause to our Holy Mother Church. WWJD?

    Speaker Pelosi unequivocally now passes all four tests required by Canon 915 - Persistent, obstinant, manifest, and grave. What's holding the bishops back from protecting the faith and the faithful from error? Is Archbishop Burke the only one who wears boxers as opposed to pink panties?

    how could the holy church allow N. Pelosi to dictate the course of a service just before her swearing in as speaker? the church must not empower those of false church and biblical doctrine.

    Thank you for publicly commenting strongly on the outrageous behavior of the Speaker of the House of Representatives. Why does the Catholic Church continue to allow her sacrilegious reception of Holy Communion every Sunday?

    If abortion is evil and totally against Catholic teaching, how can someone who advocates and actively works to support abortion be allowed to have the sacraments? In this case she doesn't even see it as evil or even wrong. Furthermore she's either woefully ignorant about Catholic teaching or deliberately misleading those who heard her on Meet the Press and probably at numerous other speeches. Somehow, I don't think it's ignorance. By allowing her to continue in full connection with the Church aren't you essentially saying that no matter what we say it really isn't that big a deal.

    Amen to that. Glad to see the Bishops and Cardinals are calling her out on it.

    America continues to experience deep problems from within and without, (war, terrorism, natural disasters, economic problems) that all have their roots in the the sin of abortion. The Blessing of a benevolent God cannot be with a nation that provides no protection in its laws for its unborn citizens,nor have any respect for the family and for religion in public life. Nancy Pelosi is a reflection of a culture that is deeply disrespectful of the gift of life that comes from God. She is willfully blinding herself and others to the true teaching of the Holy Roman Catholic Church.
