Pelosi Says Denial of Eucharist Would be "Severe Blow"

Pelosi’s church has not withheld communion
By Bob Cusack

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she, unlike other Catholic politicians who support abortion rights, has not clashed with her church about receiving communion.

In an interview on C-SPAN that aired on Sunday, Pelosi was asked about how some church officials have raised objections about whether former presidential contenders -- such as Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) -- should receive communion.

Pelosi, a Roman Catholic whose district includes most of San Francisco, said she has not encountered such difficulties in her church.

“I think some of it is regional,” she said, “It depends on the bishop of a certain region and fortunately for me, communion has not been withheld and I’m a regular communicant so that would be a severe blow to me if that were the case.” Complete article.

Right there is the greatest reason pro-abortion politicians should be denied communion. I equate it with dishing out a bit of tough love to a child to wake them up when all else has failed to turn them from a destructive behavior.

Oh, there is one other thing which I think should be mentioned:
Throughout history there have been regional atrosities of one nature or another - that doesn't mean they were ever right, proper or good. I'm just saying...
