A Tale of Two Priests;Culture of Death Politician and True Shepherd

An excerpt from Nancy Pelosi's eulogy for Fr. Drinan at St. Aloyisius Church in Washington DC February 1st;

"That was Father Drinan – eager to help all in need, slow to accept credit.
I am particularly honored that earlier this month, Father Drinan celebrated a
Mass at my alma mater, Trinity College, before I was sworn in as Speaker. He
said that Mass in honor of the children of Darfur and Katrina, praying there
that ‘the needs of every child are the needs of Jesus Christ himself.’ "

He forgot the needs of the unborn child, as does Nancy and most Culture of Death so-called Catholic politicians in Congress.

Another priest writes to Nancy Pelosi here:
If you can kill a baby in the womb, Nancy, why not outside of it?”
Fr. John Malloy, pastor of Saints Peter and Paul Church in San Francisco, penned this
“Open letter to Nancy Pelosi,” which was recently published in the parish
bulletin. We reprint it here with Fr. Malloy’s permission. Nancy, you are
fooling yourself and I fear fooling many good Catholics. You are simply not in
sync with the Catholic Church. Until you change your non-Catholic positions, you
should stop calling yourself Catholic. Your record shows that you support
embryonic stem cell research, Planned Parenthood, contraception, family planning
funding, allowing minors to have an abortion without parental consent, and are
against making it a crime to harm a fetus, etc. etc. The fact that you favor
married priests and women priests certainly would not classify you as
conservative, but your answer to the question are you a conservative Catholic
was: “I think so. I was raised in a very strict upbringing in a Catholic home
where we respected people, were observant, were practicing Catholics, and that
the fundamental belief was that God gave us all a free will, and we were
accountable for that, each of us. Each person had that accountability, so it
wasn’t for us to make judgments about how people saw their responsibility and
that it wasn’t for politicians to make decisions about how people led their
personal lives; certainly, to a high moral standards, but when it got into
decisions about privacy and all the rest, then that was something that
individuals had to answer to God for, and not to politicians.” That sounds fair
and tolerant, but your record belies high moral standards. The NARAL rates you
100% pro-abortion. Your statement: “To me it isn’t even a question. God has
given us a free will. We’re all responsible for our actions. If you don’t want
an abortion, you don’t believe in it, [then] don’t have one. But don’t tell
somebody else what they can do in terms of honoring their responsibilities. My
family is very pro-life. They’re not fanatics and they’re not activists. I think
they’d like it if I were not so vocally pro-choice.” Do we not elect politicians
to make laws that help people honor their responsibilities, such as protecting
life itself? Can politicians not tell someone else not to kill? If you can kill
a baby in the womb, Nancy, why not outside of it? Oh wait, you are in favor of
partial birth abortion, so-called because the baby sticks out of the “mother”
about halfway, while the “doctor” sucks out the baby's brain. That seems
comparable to the choice the Nazis made killing six million Jews. Yes, Nancy, we
(together with your pro-life family) would all like it if you were not so
vocally pro-choice, i.e. pro-death. Until your choice is in line with Catholic
doctrine, please, Nancy, do not receive the Eucharist when you attend Mass.

Rev. John Malloy, SDB San Francisco, CA

Three Cheers for Culture of Life heroes like Fr. Malloy!

Amen and hurray for Fr. Malloy! One of my greatest irritations and embrassments at being a Roman Catholic is politicians like Nancy Pelosi. I don't understand why our bishops don't take action against them. I praise Fr. Malloy for having the guts to tell her to refrain from the Holy Eucharist.
