It's about DAMN TIME!

Someone in the Catholic hierarchy finally made a statement regarding politicians who claim to be Catholic yet advocate for abortion.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has no Catholic right to be granted Communion, said the leading cardinal of the highest court at the Vatican.

Mrs. Pelosi should be denied Communion until she changes her advocacy views on abortion, Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke said, in an interview with The Wanderer reported by the Western Center for Journalism.
That’s canon law, not opinion, he said. Canon 915 states that Catholics who are stubbornly contrary “in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.”

And Cardinal Burke said Mrs. Pelosi fits the definition.

“Certainly this is a case when Canon 915 must be applied,” he said, the Western Center for Journalism reported. “This is a person who obstinately, after repeated admonitions, persists in a grave sin — cooperating with the crime of procured abortion — and still professes to be a devout Catholic.”

The cardinal also said that Mrs. Pelosi is a perfect example of Catholics who separate their faith from day-to-day living.
Folks, you can be Catholic.  Or you can support abortion.  It is an either-or proposition.  You cannot be Catholic AND support abortion.  If you want to be Catholic, you must support the right of babies to be born, period. 
Granny Rictus Pelosi is a staunch advocate for ripping babies out of the womb and murdering them.  Ipso facto, she cannot claim to hold to the tenants of Catholicism at the same time.  And it's about damn time that someone in the Church finally spoke up and said so.
