Pelosi says she refuses to mix her faith with politics.

CNS News is reporting via various sources that the Vatican is affirming that House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) must be denied communion under the law of the Catholic Church. The statement originated from Cardinal Raymond Burke, archbishop emeritus of St. Louis and Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura.

Pelosi must be denied communion, which should teach a lesson to a practicing and faithful Catholic such as her.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - According to CNS News and The Wanderer, Cardinal Burke of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, the highest Vatican court, Nancy Pelosi must be denied communion.

According to Canon 915, Catholics who persist "in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to Holy Communion."

Burke said in an interview in The Wanderer, a Catholic weekly, "Certainly this is a case when Canon 915 must be applied."

Communion is a key sacrament, central and essential to the Catholic faith.

Specifically, Pelosi's grave sin is her unwavering support for abortion. CNS quoted Cardinal Burke as saying, "This is a prime example of what Blessed John Paul II referred to as the situation of Catholics who have divorced their faith from their public life and therefore are not serving their brothers and sisters in the way that they must--in safeguarding and promoting the life of the innocent and defenseless unborn, in safeguarding and promoting the integrity of marriage and the family,"

According to the same report, Pelosi distanced herself from the abortion issue during a mid-June interview in which she was asked "if there is a moral difference between aborting a baby at 26 weeks and what Dr. Kermit Gosnell did in Philadelphia in delivering babies alive at 23 weeks and then severing their spinal cords to kill them?

The cornered Pelosi ducked behind the robes of her alleged faith, "As a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this. I don't think it should have anything to do with politics, and that's where you're taking it and I'm not going there."

Both Cardinal burke and CNS News closed the lid on Pelosi by referencing Saint Sir Thomas Moore, the sixteenth century Lord Chancellor of England and personal friend to Henry VIII. Moore was beheaded as an example to others after he refused to swear an oath of supremacy to Henry VIII which would have affirmed his role as the head of the Church in England.

Moore refused to separate his political life from his faith, which resulted in his death.

Meanwhile, Pelosi is drawing a distinction because to be faithful might cost her a precious 100 percent rating on NARAL Pro-Choice America.

In an age when the nation needs more saints like St. Sir Thomas Moore, we have leaders like Nancy Pelosi. There should be no wonder why the United States persists in rapid decline.
