The San Francisco Examiner’s editorial board wrote a scathing rebuke of the city’s archbishop, Salvatore Cordileone, after he announced he would deny Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Holy Communion, over her staunch support for abortion.

Cordileone wrote to the Pelosi on Friday, warning her that she cannot receive Communion, while vowing to codify Roe v. Wade.

“You are not to present yourself for Holy Communion and, should you do so, you are not to be admitted to Holy Communion,” he wrote.

In response, the liberal editorial board blasted the Catholic leader for “punishing” Pelosi, instead of “right-wing politicians” who “[vote] against health care or funding for the poor.”

They defended Pelosi as a leader who has “consistently fought on the morally right side of these issues,” and praised her as a role model for women.

The editorial board argued that by denying Pelosi Holy Communion, the archbishop wasn’t being loyal to Christ.
