Pro-abortion Catholic Dems off
the hook as bishops walk back
plan to restrict Communion

Original Article

If Catholic politicians who support abortion rights were anxious about being restricted from receiving Holy Communion, they can breathe easier. Such a prohibition is now off the table at Thursday’s U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. “We are no longer proposing a national policy” regarding who may present themselves for Communion, Bishop Kevin Rhoades of Indiana’s Fort Wayne-South Bend Diocese told delegates to a virtual USCCB spring meeting. Bishop Rhoades, who chairs the group’s doctrinal committee, conceded the notion “was in the original proposal” for the document, he added, “We never meant it as it’s been interpreted in many media sources.”


The church's Catholic Charities arm makes a fortune resettling unassimilable refugees into the USA, so it's important to stay in the good graces of Democrat false Catholics.

So disappointing. Our bishops have clearly dropped the ball here. We Catholics need to make our voices heard. Contact your diocesan office and express your dissatisfaction. This decision is outrageous.

Are these cowards Catholic? Hey idiots: ABORTION IS MURDER! The Sixth Commandment says: "THOU SHALL NOT MURDER" Can it be any clearer than that?

I think by their actions a lot of Catholic Bishops have shown when it gets down to the bottom line that they are liberal Democrat supporters no matter the issue.

I’ve been Catholic from birth, and I am incredibly sad and thoroughly disgusted at what The Church has become. I could whether the storm of gay pedophelia, divorce, birth control, and its wink-wink-nudge-nudge attitude toward abortion, as the The Church wrestled with the consequences of some of their decisions. I could even grit my teeth and wait for Francis’ passing. But, the cowardice that The Church has shown in the face of Covid (The church I used to attend separates the pews into vaccinated and unvaccinated), coupled with its gleeful slide to the extreme left, has been the final nail in the coffin for me. I no longer attend.

Meanwhile in other news, Vladimir Putin was asked when he first began to believe in God. Hmm. His translated answer sounded to me like a ''confession of faith.'' As I tried to comprehend the translation, it was not complimentary to the Roman church. Bears watching. (Yes, I understand Russia's atomic arsenal could nuke us into glass.)

Clay (#16), You Nailed it! The Catholic church bureaucracy is full of weak-willed people who do nothing more than follow the money. When I was a kid in the 1950's and early 1960's, I believed that the Church stood for Good against Evil. But when the Church supported, or at least did not kick out, the evil Communist-supporting Berrigan priests in the 1960's I was horribly disappointed, But then the Pope, President Reagan, and Prime Minister Thatcher together with Polish labor leader (then national leader) Lech Walesa brought about the end of the Soviet Union, it seemed that perhaps they would straighten things out. Then the homosexual abuse scandals in the 1980's and 1990's came to light. Not just that there were pervert priests, but that the Church bureaucrats paid people to keep quiet as they moved the perverts to 'unspoiled fields' where the same perverts could attack new groups of unsuspecting innocent children. Millions of dollars in donations from parishioners, meant to help people in desperate need, was diverted to pay damages to people and families abused by the pervert priests. I became convinced that the Church bureaucrats, at least in the US, were a corrupt bunch. Today, the current bureaucracy, all the way to the top, seems thoroughly corrupt and evil. What good remains is in certain individual priests, but the higher-up positions have been filled by people who are either completely spineless, or are evil to the core. I consider myself a Christian, but I have walked away from the Catholic church.

As a lifelong Catholic, I have to register my disappointment with the Catholic powers that be for their pathetic abandonment of Catholic principles and dogma in favor of the easier way, I donate to right to life groups and now, thanks to these powers, my donations go to people who SUPPORT ABORTION ON DEMAND. These bishops, cardinals, and the Pontiff himself have succumbed to the temptation to give up the fight against abortion on demand because, well, I am not sure why they have done so. Perhaps evil has an expiration date and abortion is now a good thing. What a horrible decision this is.

Said to many a barfly at last call: "You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here." Abortion cheerleaders/"devout Catholics" like Pelosi and Biden can receive communion, just not in a Catholic church. There are plenty of abortion-loving Christian denominations in the US, join one of them. And take the Bishops with you. We'll throw in the Pope for free.

Thank you, #20, for expressing my sane sentiments. I also used to think our government stood against evil in this world. It’s crushing to my spirit to know the pillars of society are so corrupt. I haven’t walked away from the Church. - yet. I’m going to be more vocal in my dissent against the Church’s left-wing leanings. It will start with my wallet and I’ll tell my priest where the Church can shove it.

I am deeply disappointed by this decision. Archbishop Cordileone's letter on the sanctity of life is a powerful statement against the abomination of abortion and has the support of a significant number of bishops (including my own Bishop Vasa of Santa Rosa Diocese), but apparently not enough. The reasons for their refusal to approve can range from greed to cowardliness, to outright corruption by souls sold to the devil. We will never know in this life. I see parallels between the state of the Catholic Church and the current state of our dear country. Just as I will fight to the death to protect, defend and re-instate the Constitution of the United States because I am an American, I am a practicing Catholic and will stay and fight to clear out the Smoke of Satan that has infested my beloved Church. I will never abandon the Eucharist - the Physical Presence of Christ in His Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity; Our Savior who promised His Church the protection of the Holy Spirit, no matter the machinations of evil men in high places. What hubris we moderns possess to expect every priest, bishop, archbishop, cardinal or pope to be perfect and without human concupiscence. Holy Orders is not armor against the devil, it is an attraction. Capturing consecrated souls is the greatest prize for Satan, and his first conquest was Judas. Peter also fell to the temptation to deny Christ, but his love of Jesus and his faith protected him from the final denial of suicide, that which claimed Judas. Corruption has been a feature of Christ's Church since the beginning, and God allows it because He Knows it will survive until the Second Coming because it is protected by the Holy Spirit and His Real Presence. The Catholic Church has survived persecutions, schisms wherein at one point we had three popes, the Borgia popes and the Protestant Reformation, it will survive the feckless leaders of today. The question for modern Catholics is what is more important; the Faith and Her precious Sacraments or your disappointment/anger at transitory weak leaders? I will never leave the Eucharist. I will never leave Christ fully Present in His Body and Blood. I will never abandon the witness of the martyrs from the first century to today. AMDG

#26, well said. While sadly disappointing I'm not leaving the church either. It is ultimately a Blood Oath. In the meantime I'm not going to take this story at face value. Too many times press releases from the Catholic Church get twisted in the secular media. I'm looking forward to some commentary on this on the Catholic radio station this afternoon. Drew Mariani is very good at getting to the bottom of these things.

When my mother, a little old lady, died in 1977 she had attended the same Catholic Church for at least three decades. When my brother went to the church rectory to talk with the Pastor to arrange for a church funeral for her, the Pastor nor anyone else there did not have a clue who she was, as she was just a little old Irish lady who put money in the collection basket every Sunday, and who sent Father Flanagan at Boy’s Town a few dollars every Christmas. I always remembered that, and since I have not had much respect for the Bishops and Priests who follow the money and don’t have a clue about their just plain parishioners.

The election of 2020 is going to lay bare the dereliction of the Supreme Court for all to see. The COVD-19 pandemic gave numerous state election officials an excuse to implement far-reaching changes to our election processes. Those changes obviously made our systems vulnerable to fraud. States implemented massive mail-in balloting at the same time they relaxed ballot security and voter identification. They even extended the voting periods -- to give the criminals more time to commit their fraud. All these changes were unconstitutional. (snip) The Supreme Court declined to get involved.

Do you remember how conservatives went out of their way to separate rank-and-file FBI agents from the corrupt actions of Jim Comey, Andrew McCabe, Bill Priestap, James Baker, James Rybicki, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page (snip) an exposé in Revolver News detailing the FBI's probable infiltration of the January 6 voting rights protest and political rally in D.C. and the likelihood that undercover agents instigated and actively participated in the events at the Capitol that day should put the matter to bed once and for all.

If Catholic politicians who support abortion rights were anxious about being restricted from receiving Holy Communion, they can breathe easier. Such a prohibition is now off the table at Thursday’s U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. “We are no longer proposing a national policy” regarding who may present themselves for Communion, Bishop Kevin Rhoades of Indiana’s Fort Wayne-South Bend Diocese told delegates to a virtual USCCB spring meeting. Bishop Rhoades, who chairs the group’s doctrinal committee, conceded the notion “was in the original proposal” for the document, he added, “We never meant it as it’s been interpreted in many media sources.”

Baraka said during a ceremony Wednesday where the statue was unveiled to the public. “Hopefully when people walk by it and they see it…hopefully it inspires them to become active in the struggles that are happening right here in Newark and right here in New Jersey.”
