I have to assume the "good bishop of Albany" has a sense of humor:
Albany Bishop Howard Hubbard says it is "unfair and imprudent" to conclude that Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his girlfriend, Sandra Lee, shouldn't receive Communion simply because they're living together.
-- from the thread Bishop: None of your business (Hubbard rejects Catholic expert's criticism of Gov. Cuomo)
Here is a tweet from the actress Heaton
#Cuomo supports killing viable babies, exploiting poor women - still takes communion. #Gosnell #Carhart #Karpen #Brigham #Riley #Seletz

You would be so correct. It turns out that the “sense of humor” overtakes sacred scripture, doctrine, canon law, repentance certainly, and common sense. A pity.
This is, of course, another scandalous response, if accurate, for the laity to suffer, greatly in the way of the “new evangelization”, I fear.
