Joe Rogan Blasts Catholic Church

Controversial podcaster Joe Rogan recently made incendiary comments about the Vatican, saying it was “filled with pedophiles and stolen art.”

Rogan’s remarks came during a recent episode of his immensely popular podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience.

Rogan pontificated on “why isn’t everybody really freaking out about” the Catholic Church’s crimes.

“I was just in Italy, and one of the things that’s nuts is the Vatican is a country,” Rogan told his guests Francis Foster and Konstantin Kisin. “It’s a country filled with pedophiles. It’s a country filled with pedophiles and stolen art.”

“It’s a small, like hundred yard — Like what is it? A hundred acres, I think,” he continued. “Yeah. It’s a hundred acre rather, a country inside of a city filled with pedophiles.”

“This is why I love America, man,” said Kisin, a fellow podcaster. “Cause in the UK, we have libel laws. So if you say something like that and you then have to be able to prove it, otherwise you can get sued.”

“Well, you can kind of prove that,” Rogan responded, adding that Pope Benedict XVI “was wanted in other countries for crimes against humanity.”

“I mean like what he was doing was really evil. He was moving offenders to other places and one of them he moved a guy that went on to molest a hundred deaf kids,” he continued.

“I mean, this guy was already molesting, and then they say, well, let’s just instead of trying him and removing him from the church, we will just move him to a place where people can’t hear.”

‘Very Catholic’ Nancy Pelosi Dodges Question About Abortion [Video]

The self-proclaimed “very Catholic” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) side-stepped a question about whether or not she agreed with the Pope’s stance on abortion.

“Do you agree with Pope Francis and Pope John Paul II that abortion is murder?” a reporter for CNSNews.com asked Pelosi at her weekly press conference.

Pelosi dodged the question, saying that her personal beliefs don’t reflect “what public policy should be.”

“What I agree on is that whatever I believe or agree with the popes on is not necessarily what public policy should be in the United States, as people make their own judgments, honor their own responsibilities, and tend to the needs of their families,” Pelosi said.

When another reporter asked a follow-up question about abortion, Pelosi said: “Well, let me just say this. A woman has a right to choose, to live up to her responsibility. It’s up to her doctor, her family, her husband, her significant other, and her God. This talk of — politicizing all of this is something uniquely American and not right.”

“I’m a very Catholic person, and I believe in every woman’s right to make her own decisions,” Pelosi said, asking if anyone had any questions on another subject “because I’m not going to be talking about that.”

Pelosi Banned From Receiving Communion

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been officially barred from receiving communion over her pro-choice beliefs.

The Archbishop of San Francisco Salvatore Cordileone wrote a letter to Pelosi this week, saying he had attempted to contact her after she vowed to ensure abortion rights by codifying Roe v. Wade.

Cordileone said that he had previously warned Pelosi in an April 7 letter to either repudiate her support of abortion rights or to stop referring to her Catholic faith in public, or he would have to ban her from receiving communion.

“As you have not publically repudiated your position on abortion, and continue to refer to your Catholic faith in justifying your position and to receive Holy Communion, that time has now come,” Cordileone wrote.

“Therefore, in light of my responsibility as the Archbishop of San Francisco to be ‘concerned for all the Christian faithful entrusted to [my] care’ (Code of Canon Law, can. 383, §1), by means of this communication I am hereby notifying you that you are not to present yourself for Holy Communion and, should you do so, you are not to be admitted to Holy Communion, until such time as you publically repudiate your advocacy for the legitimacy of abortion and confess and receive absolution of this grave sin in the sacrament of Penance.”

The Archbishop penned an additional open letter on Friday, saying he takes “no pleasure whatsoever” in barring Pelosi from communion.

“Speaker Pelosi remains our sister in Christ. Her advocacy for the care of the poor and vulnerable elicits my admiration. I assure you that my action here is purely pastoral, not political,” he wrote.
