Posted By: WootThat is why I do not equate Catholicism to fundamentalist Christian religions and find it out of place in this thread with your other "Christian Jihad" references.
Posted By: GL2NO WAFER FOR YOU! Meanwhile, in Little Rhody, Grand Ayatollah Thomas Tobin of the tax-exempt Catholic Church, has decided that Patrick Kennedy cannot receive communion. I wonder how many pro-choice Catholics and women who've had abortions received communion today in America. "Onward Christian Soldiers,/Marching as to war." ___________________________________________________________________ Congressman Patrick Kennedy, Democrat of Rhode Island, has been denied communion by the Catholic Church because of his pro choice views on abortion. Patrick Kennedy's fight with his own church illustrates the intersection of politics and religion. Patrick Kennedy, the son of the late Senator Teddy Kennedy, is now in a public spat with Roman Catholic Bishop Thomas Tobin, who instructed Patrick Kennedy not to receive communion and ordered priests in the diocese of Providence, Rhode Island to deny Kennedy the holy rite. http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/2419268/patrick_kennedy_abortion_and_the_catholic.html
Posted By: ml1air enough, the bishop is exercising his authority, as is his right. when is he going to start denying communion to pro-death penalty politicians?
Posted By: SMCIt's an insignificant thread, posted on an insignificant message board, started by an insignificant board member who has nothing better to do with his "life". Just ignore it.
Posted By: WootGL2, But I can understand why Catholicism might disapprove of abortion.
And, I would expect priests to talk directly to Catholic politicians who actively support abortion and remind them of their religious beliefs as Catholics.
