There is subjective opinion and objective fact.
Ms. Pelosi apparently believes in God and Christ but rejects the teaching magisterium of the Church. Thus due largely to accident of birth she is a nominal catholic but is a de facto protestant Christian accepting Christ ( apparently) but rejecting the magisterium.
Nancy Pelosi is not a Catholic. She is a protestant without the honestly or self knowledge to accept that truth and publicly disown a Church she rejects.

Ms Pelosi,is a Catholic, as far as you and I as members of the public can determine.
She does, from all accounts, appear to be a Catholic dissident,but still, that is not for us to judge. We do not kneel beside her or any one else in the confessional only the Priest in Persona Christe.
Confession requires true repentance and attempts at conversion. Her continued public support of abortion and deliberate public misrepresentation of Church teachings does not indicate any such thing.
My bad, perhaps, but I would not kneel next to her at mass, I'd find somewhere else to sit. That woman's attitude toward the public, the unborn and the Church literally sickens me.
In any case, I will continue to pray for public officials who don't "get" the Gospel message.
