U.S. Bishops Move Toward Denying Communion to Pols Who Support Abortion

The murder (in the cathedral!) of St. Thomas a Becket

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, in search of “Eucharistic coherence,” yesterday voted almost 3-1 to “proceed with drafting a formal statement on the meaning of Communion” which would include a provision to deny Communion to Catholic politicians who support abortion (https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/559167-bishops-vote-to-proceed-with-drafting-document-on-denying-communion).

Biden, Pelosi, Kerry, Cuomo–are you listening?

A formal vote will be taken at the bishops’ next meeting in November, having allowed four months for debate.

Their action would have to be approved by the Vatican, which has signaled that it will not approve the measure–thus achieving Eucharistic incoherence. “It’s okay for the big shots to support abortion, but it’s still a sin!”

Where’s St. Thomas a Becket when we need him? But he was murdered for asserting the church’s independence from the King of England.

The Red Pope says he doesn’t want the Eucharist to be “used as a political weapon.” Well, sunshine, it goes with the territory.

I wonder if there’s a schism in the church’s future.

  1. They shouldn’t be “moving toward” it — which means they’ll keep “moving toward” and never arrive. And in reality, they should have started there in the first place. It’s required by canon law. But the same modernist spirit that’s infected secular society has infected the hierarchy of the Church. And I’ve heard similar laments from faithful Protestants about their own church leaders as well.

  2. This is all so ridiculous. It says right there in the Bible to examine yourself before you take the Eucharist. And if you don’t, and are living in open sin (like advocating for legal abortion), you will incur God’s judgment. So when these liberal left lying politicians have something bad happen to them, who will be surprised? God says, you reap what you sow – it’s a law of life.
