Filled With Sound And Fury, Signifying Nothing
The American Bishops speak....
WARNING!!! Harsh language alert.
OK... by now we all know about Nancy Pelosi's diabolical statement
that “I don't think anybody can tell you when life begins”
. What bullshit.
OK... by now we all know that a bevy of Catholic honchos, the likes of Cardinals Egan and Rigali, Archbishops Chaput and Wuerl, Bishop Lori, etc, have been "correcting
" Nancy Slice and Dice
. And to a lesser degree (as I've already posted), Joey Hairplugs has been "corrected". What bullshit.
Here's the bottom line, fellow Bloglodytes, nothing
will happen to either Nancy S&D or Joey Hairplugs. Nothing
Archbishop Wuerl has a well documented history of smiling and looking the other way while "pro-abortion Catholic" politicians in Washington, DC receive Holy Communion. Hell, but the same goes for the vast majority of the American Bishops.
And yes, I'm very familiar with Archbishop Chaput's longstanding policy that pro-abort Catholics shouldn't receive Holy Communion. Or is that really what he said? No... it isn't. Want to know what he really said? Click here
. But here's the gist of it; (Emphasis mine)In an email sent Sunday to the Associated Press, Archbishop Chaput said Biden should following the teachings of the Church by opposing abortion or voluntarily refrain from receiving communion.
Not doing so would be "seriously wrong," he said.
"I certainly presume his good will and integrity and I presume that his integrity will lead him to refrain from presenting himself for Communion if he supports a false 'right' to abortion," the Catholic leader added.
"Voluntarily refrain"? "Seriously wrong"? Such bullshit. But I'll admit, Archbishop Chaput is tougher than his Ecclesiastical Brethren...but his essentially weak-kneed stance is kind of like being the longest putt on a miniature golf course.
Anyhow, don't count on things improving anytime soon. Not as long as we have gutless priests who say things like
;...but that he “doesn't want to impose” his views on others and often has voted with abortion rights supporters. He added that some of the other parish priests and the bishop of the diocese have spoken with him about his pro-choice votes, but that they have never refused him Communion, as some other dioceses have done.
Pelosi and Biden have NEVER
been refused Holy Communion... PERIOD
. And they never will be, either. Not as long as we have "leaders" who are filled with sound and fury, but signifying nothing.
And how sad that one of the few American Bishops who has a functioning set of balls, Archbishop Raymond Burke, is now in Rome. And for those that didn't know, Abp Burke is now saddled up with something call The Apostolic Signature
, which is roughly the Catholic Church's Supreme Court. Here's what he said
on the subject;“If a person who has been admonished persists in public mortal sin and attempts to receive Communion, the minister of the Eucharist has the obligation to deny it to him. Why? Above all, for the salvation of that person, preventing him from committing a sacrilege."
Mark my words... Archbishop Burke will be ignored by EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN BISHOP
The day ANY
American "pro-abortion Catholic" politician is publically denied Holy Communion
, is the day I'll publically apologize to that particular Bishop.
In the meantime... it's all bullshit.
