As most of you know, I have very little use for the Catholic denomination.
That said, I was majorly encouraged by (hat tip: Moe Lane at Redstate.)
Providence Bishop Thomas J. Tobin has forbidden Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy to receive the Roman Catholic sacrament of Holy Communion because of his advocacy of abortion rights, the Rhode Island Democrat said Friday.
“The bishop instructed me not to take Communion and said that he has instructed the diocesan priests not to give me Communion,” Kennedy said in a telephone interview.
Kennedy said the bishop had explained the penalty by telling him “that I am not a good practicing Catholic because of the positions that I’ve taken as a public official,” particularly on abortion. He declined to say when or how Bishop Tobin told him not to take the sacrament. And he declined to say whether he has obeyed the bishop’s injunction
About time the Catholics put some teeth in that declarative of theirs concerning politicians & baby-butchering.
Nice work, guys. Now, if you’d go and tell off a certain Honduran lady in Miami about marriage vows, i.e. actually keeping them…
