Skip to comments.How can we convince the Pope to excommunicate the Catholics who voted for ObamaCare?

Same goes for Harry Reid and the President of the LDS, etc. Should we start a petition or what? How can Speaker Nancy Pelosi claim to be a Catholic in good standing? Your suggestions and input would be welcomed.
I’m NOT Catholic....but this SHOULD be a no-brainer. IMHO
Good luck with that.
You can convince the Pope with your pocketbook.
If the church’s hierarchy sees large numbers of faithful Catholics withholding donations in protest of this- the Pope might well take action.
The Catholic Bishops should have come out enmasse and condemned any and all Reps and Senators who would vote against a bill containing any language that would open the door for taxpayers to fund abortion! Excommunication SHOULD HAVE ALREADY HAPPENED!
Excommunated would be great, but I would prefer to see several hours of whacks on the nuckles from an angry nun.
The Pope allowed the pro choice nuns to carry on.......
I have heard that the Catholic Church opposes abortion. Perhaps we will find out for sure?
So what if they’re excommunicated. What does that do to them? They’re Godless anyway.
They should have, but they didn’t.
Wasn’t there a threat to excomm Juan Carlos of Spain for approving an abortion law there?
There just seems to be enough talk, but not much action on the part of the Catholic Church on this.
They are automatically excommunicated...when they take Holy Communion it is Spiritual Suicide!
If they are excommunicated, they can’t use the church as a prop for their campaigns like Mr. Kerry did in 2004 and they can’t say that they are “catholic” either.
When they die, they won’t have a Catholic funeral where a priest will eulogize them as well.
has anyone seen the pope or cardinals do their job in the last 30 years????
Time to require more spine of local Bishops and Cardinals. Don’t expect Cardinal Mahony to expel local Catholic mayors and Hollywood’s cafeteria Catholics. We need to petition the Pope to remove liberal bishops and cardinals.
Notre Dame had Christians arrested for protesting abortion. Rome cares more about illegal aliens.
Agreed. It's all about numbers and money.
You can put me down as number one on your list.
They are more interested in money and power than in doing God’s work.
I sent a letter to my bishop. Maybe if they get enough letters . . .?? Long shot but at least you have gone on record.
I'll give JPII credit for assisting President Reagan in bringing down the USSR.
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.
Exactly. It is high time that democrats were held to account for their actions, and Pelosi has been abusing her putative relationship with the church for so long, and so badly, that she should be formally excommunicated now.
Ok thats one....I think right now they are busy defending perverts again...
Actually the Catholics in the churches they attend should hold them accountable by blocking their way to the alter for communion and the priest should SPEAK up. It is murder they are condoning.
Maybe it’s just that God is giving me a break, but our Dominican parish in Charlottesville VA is a place where pro-life activities are always happening, and the Gospel is preached.
Last Friday morning in front of Planned Murderhood was really nice, Two homeschooled teenagers holding a large pro-life sign and 4 more of us praying Rosary, Divine Mercy, singing hymns, some free prayer, the Salve sung to the Dominican tone — which is so beautiful it brings tears to my eyes.
And one of the friars took the time to be with us, his white habit blowing the breeze and shining in the spring sun
“Get a life!” people yelled as they drove by. Well, yeah. That IS kind of the idea ....
That is why I belong to a traditional latin parish..FSSP started by Pope John Paul. They tell it like it is!
I do not understand why this is tolerated! Those nuns should have been bounced out on their asses and pronto!
The Catholic Church is not a democracy (or a republic). If it were, everyone would vote to have their favorite sin made OK. Kind of like the United States.
I have to count myself as being very lucky in that my Parish is staunchly pro life and they don't make any bones about it! But I do know what you mean when it comes to the liberal Parishes. They are deplorable and should be cut off as soon as their found out! They should be amputated from the Church as you would amputate a rotting body part. Eventually it will do much harm to the rest of the body if not kill it.
People forget little things like that.
We are (hopefully) early on.
The fake Catholics such as Biden and Pelosi and Kerry will wash-out and meet their karma. Soon. Biden, Pelosi, Kerry, Stupak will meet with their own karma. They are only tragic pro-abortion figures. Meaningless, really.
This November........and with ANY vote.....we need to vote out any liberal dimocRats at every chance we get.
The catholic church does not work that way. It always allows for repentance. However, Pelosi has been warned repeatedly that she is in violation of the church by her bishops. I wonder how long this sham will be allowed.
I can’t wait for nicer weather! Last Friday here it was cold, windy and snowing. But we were there! It was so cold nobody yelled at us, but we got lots of friendly honks from passing cars.
As to Harry Reid, I don’t think the LDS would do anything. I read in an LDS publicaton that abortion is strongly advised against, but that believers should consult with their clergy to make their decision. (My eye doctor has LDS magazines and materials in the waiting room, and there was an article on it.)
I forget what they are called, maybe bishops?
