"U.S. Catholic Bishops have made a giant leap toward using Communion as their next political weapon, with Rhode Island's bishop telling Rep. Patrick Kennedy that he is no longer welcome to receive Communion during Mass at any church in the entire state. The move by Bishop Thomas Tobin follows through on previous threats by many U.S. Catholic bishops that they would ban pro-choice and pro-LGBT politicians from partaking in one of the Church's most important sacraments."
I can not belive they are doing this! It is so wrong! What do you all think?

The Church sees abortion as murder. Why would they let someone who supports murder be in communion with the Church?

I'm sorry we are talking about the Catholic Church right? The same Church that thinks it's OK for their priest's to diddle little boys, and then cover-up those acts for centuries - But not OK for someone to support a woman's RIGHT to do what she needs to do with HER OWN body???? WTF??? Happy and proud that I was NEVER Catholic!!!

Jewjewbee, sure everyone sins, and all sins are equal, but when you sin you recognize you sin and ask for forgiveness and try to avoid sin in the future. You don't ignore the fact that your sn is a sin and support that sin in public. There is the difference.

If you want to be a part of a religion, you should follow it's rules. If you don't agree with the rules, find another religion.

I don't think it is political, it is religious. If he doesn't agree with the teachings of the church, instead of making the Church out to be the bad guy (for upholding their teachings and beliefs), why doesn't he just leave?
