KANSAS CITY BISHOP LEADS MOVEMENT TO REFUSE HOLY COMMUNION TO JOE BIDEN AND ALL PRO-CHOICE POLITICOS!!!
Recently, the former Vice President was denied communion because of his stance on abortion.
The debate has sparked a reckoning among American Catholics who range from both Conservative and radically progressive in terms of political ideology.
More to the point . . .
AN OUTSPOKEN KANSAS CITY, KANSAS CLERIC LEADS THE MOVEMENT TO DENY COMMUNION TO CATHOLICS ELECTED OFFICIALS WHO DISAGREE WITH THE CHURCH ON MATTERS OF POLICY!!!
Here's the local mention along with a fun fact of life . . . There's almost always a loophole for matters of both faith and politics:
LA Times: Joe Biden will receive Holy Communion sooner or later
Money local line:
The fact that the hierarchy is divided on this question is supported by a visit to the website of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
There you can find a February column by Archbishop Joseph F. Nauman of Kansas City in which he says that he has found it necessary to request that some pro-choice public officials “not present themselves to receive Holy Communion, for their own spiritual welfare and for the protection of many others from moral confusion.”
Yet the website also features a 2004 statement in which the bishops take a flexible approach, saying that bishops “can legitimately make different judgments on the most prudent course of pastoral action.”
You decide . . .
