The state of California, the city of San Francisco, and the Twelfth Congressional District of California are very upset with Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone.
In spreading the tradition of the Catholic Church, the San Francisco archbishop is speaking at the National Organization for Marriage’s June 19 march. The teachings of that march, according to Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, are “venom masquerading as virtue.”
Apparently, Pelosi learned the fundamentals of virtue during her twenty-six years in Congress.
Indeed, the congresswoman asked in a letter to the archbishop, “If someone is gay and is searching for the Lord and has good will, then who am I to judge him?”
Last week, Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee penned their own joint letter promoting “reconciliation rather than division and hatred.”
Why are these politicians, who parade themselves as loving moralists, practicing self-aggrandizement masquerading as tolerance?
