At what point does the good Archbishop do his duty and excommunicate Mrs. Pelosi? If she lived in Lincoln, NE she’d have been sanctioned years ago.

If \her support for legal abortion reflects her belief in human freedom\, then she should be for the abolition of all laws, as all laws limit human freedom in some way.

She doesn’t have to make sense since she is her own magesterium. Works in the this world, not so sure about the next.
