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.
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.
Perhaps this is the (new) face of the Catholic Church...If it is not, shouldn't take long for your pope to renounce this guy...
Add Nancy Pelosi, pundit Chris Matthews, Sen. Richard Durbin, SOS John Kerry, and all of the ‘Catholic’ members of the Democrat caucus to that list of people that no Catholic concerned about his soul should associate with.
