Another Amazing Revelation From The Hierarchy
And grass is green, and the sky is blue. Nooooo... really?

The American bishops just voted to figure out if "serious sin should bar someone from receiving Holy Communion".

I'm not making this up. They really had to vote on this to see if this 2,000 year old Catholic truism still holds true. And being the Politically Correct bunch they are, they even made a special point of stating that they are "Emphasizing that they were addressing all Catholics, and not just politicians or any other group" according to the Catholic News Service.

Hmmm... "not just politicians or any other group". You mean the entire Democratic Party? But then again, I wonder how many of our esteemed bishops are registered Democrats. Anyone care to lay a bet on my worst fears being true?

But anyhow, I'm not shocked anymore. Just disgusted.

But every dark cloud has it's silver lining, right? At least this was discussed in public, right? Amazingly, it passed. Not so fast, sports fans. This silver lining has a helluva dark cloud.

Get ready for this.... the vote was 210-24.

Ladies and gentlemen, that means that a little more than 12% of Catholic bishops in the United States of America believe that it's permissible to knowingly have mortal sin on your soul AND STILL receive Holy Communion.

Folks, that's better than one out of every ten. I sure would like to know who the traitors to Christ are.

Which just goes to show, once gain, what prevat2 told me years ago -- one-twelfth of the bishops are the successors of Judas Iscariot.

And Vir, you must really be disgusted. You posted that entire text without once using your patented "JIFC&CJS"!!

The CNS article referred to also states, "Non-Catholics are permitted to receive Communion in a Catholic church only if they belong to churches in full communion with the Catholic Church or in cases of "grave necessity" when ministers of their own faith are not available and certain other conditions are met, the appendix says."

I am curious as to what these "other conditions" are. Before VII, I don't recall that it was ever permissable for a non-Roman Catholic to receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion.

The chief among the other conditions is that they believe in the Real Prescence--body and Blood, Soul and Divinity.

I think this is a..not a victory...but at least a very sizable percentage of the bishops said something catholic!
