Archbishop Cordileone: ‘Everyone Who Advocates For Abortion… Participates In A Great Moral Evil’

San Francisco’s Catholic Archbishop, Salvatore Cordileone, penned an op-ed in the Washington Post this past week in which he decried the Catholic response to Texas’ new heartbeat law, going so far as to suggest that prominent Catholics who publicly support the slaughter of the preborn should be threatened with excommunication.

In his editorial, the Archbishop, who serves as the bishop for pro-abortion House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, expressed dismay that so many of the most outspoken abortion supporters also call themselves Catholic. “As a faith leader in the Catholic community, I find it especially disturbing that so many of the politicians on the wrong side of the preeminent human rights issue of our time are self-professed Catholics,” he wrote.

He also mentioned the summer’s earlier uproar, in which many people expressed outrage at the idea that pro-abortion politicians should be denied communion. “We were accused of inappropriately injecting religion into politics, of butting in where we didn’t belong,” he said. “I see matters differently.”
