Archbishop Jackels’ Not-So-Subtle Rebuke Of Archbishop Cordileone

On May 25, Archbishop Michael Jackels of Dubuque, Iowa issued a pastoral letter to his flock parroting common liberal talking points equating abortion to other “life issues” such as gun control, education, feeding the poor and global warming. Jackels also took the opportunity to take a jab at Archbishop’s Cordileone’s recent ban of communion for Nancy Pelosi.

Jackels’ states, “Also, to be consistent, to repair the scandal of Catholics being indifferent or opposed to all those other life issues, they would have to be denied Holy Communion as well. Better, I think, to put the Eucharist in the hands of such Catholics in hopes that one day soon they would put their hands to work on behalf of life, in defense of all life.”
