Meet Nancy Pelosi’s New Archbishop

By: Saturday July 28, 2012 9:00 am

On the Feast day of St. Francis, the Archdiocese of San Francisco will officially receive its new archbishop: Salvatore Cordileone. Between now and then, things will be very interesting for Catholics on both sides of the San Francisco Bay. Cordileone headed the Catholic church’s efforts to oppose marriage equality and pass Prop 8, for which he was elevated to become Bishop of Oakland and head of the USCCB’s anti-marriage equality programs nationally.

And now he’s going to be Nancy Pelosi’s new bishop.

Nancy may want to take communion often before October 4th. Something tells me she may have difficulty with that once Cordileone arrives on her side of the Bay.
