He invited her to discuss what our Catholic Church teaches about aborting babies -- which is far from what she has been saying it is -- but her response mentioned only "other issues," not specifically the aborting of babies.
Archbishop Niederauer made his invitation in his column in the September 5 edition of the archdiocesan newspaper, Catholic San Francisco (click on this post's title).
He brings up the possibility that some Catholics are honestly confused about Catholic teaching.
This calls to mind Mark Twain's comment, "Suppose you were a Member of Congress. And suppose you were an idiot. But I repeat myself."
Who really believes that any pro-abortion politician is sincerely "confused" about whether it is okay to facilitate the mass slayings of preborn babies by the millions? Nancy Pelosi has a miles-wide and years-long track record of defying our Catholic Church on aborting babies.
Could Archbishop Niederauer publicly sanction Nancy Pelosi? And do so before Election Day, Tuesday, November 4?
Not likely. But it sure would create some headlines if he did.
