Catholics to Cuomo: “Take a hike.”
Cuomo self-identifies as a faithful Catholic, and the bishop of Albany and the Archbishop of New York obviously don’t disagree.
How many NY Catholics still vote for these clowns? How many Christians vote for the party that boo God?
I just don’t understand it.
“and have been a member of Cuomos Council of Economic and Fiscal Advisors.”
So why does this so called Catholic have anything to do with a Cuomo?
Certainly the good bishop of Albany and the jolly archbishop of New York will set Coumo straight by lunch time tommorow. I should think.
Or, do they have a sense of humor about these things?
What will it take before the church finally understands that there are times when some who call themselves Catholics are so vile, so filled with hate and evil and even murder, that excommunication is called for?
To just proclaim that the church does not excommunicate anymore, or that such individuals self-excommunicate, are truthfully “cop-outs”, and a betrayal of the laity, that they not know that wolves are permitted to wander amongst them. A shepherd should not do that to his flock.
On a single Sunday, without mention or warning, every Priest in the state should tell his congregation that Cuomo is profane, that Catholics should never again have commerce with him, lest their own souls be imperiled, and that he is among the enemies of the church, who seek its destruction.
Cuomo is a Catholic himself.
NEW YORK, May 16, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) After New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan appeared to suggest during a radio interview this week that he may not view pro-abortion Governor Andrew Cuomo as a Catholic in good standing, the archdiocese has issued a statement saying that this is not the case, and that Dolan’s remark was misunderstood.
Cardinal Dolan would not, and did not, suggest the governor might not be a Catholic in good standing going forward, archdiocesan spokesman Joseph Zwilling said in a statement originally sent to the New York Times, and forwarded to LifeSiteNews.”
Andrew Cuomo: Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right to life, pro-assault weapons, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if thats who they are and theyre the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York because thats not who New Yorkers are.Thanks NYer.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
I’m not a NYer so please bear with me.
Is Cuomo living in a self-deceptive fantasy world where liberals like him believe that their opinions reflect majority voter opinion? The reason that I ask is that I cannot see Cuomo pushing a voter referendum to decide issues like abortion for example. Or have NYers approved leftist issues like abortion through referendums?
Catholic priests or Bishops cannot mention any candidate by name. They can speak to issues, but not endorse or lack to endorse a candidate. Otherwise they lose their tax-free status. It’s true of all churches, though, not just the Catholic ones.
