Are San Francisco Catholics chagrined and embarrassed by Archbishop Cordileone?
Is the ArchBishop alienating San Francisco Catholics?
“House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has written to San Francisco Roman Catholic Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone asking him to skip a controversial “March for Marriage” to be held in Washington Thursday.
The Democrat from California, who is a Roman Catholic who supports same-sex marriage and abortion, referred to a controversial 2013 comment from Pope Francis to support her position, according to political reporter Carla Marinucci in the San Francisco Chronicle.
“Invoking the words of Pope Francis with regard to gays and lesbians, (Pelosi) wrote, ‘If someone is gay and is searching for the Lord and has good will, then who am I to judge him?’ ”
Her call — reportedly in a letter the Chronicle did not post online — joined an open letter co-signed by California’s Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and a host of other state officials and dozens of religious and community leaders.”
Other speakers slated to attend the “March for Marriage” include Rick Santorum, Governor Mike Huckabee,
and New York State Senator Rev. Rubin Diaz.
