Bishop to Biden: Don't take communion in Colorado Springs
Examiner.com ^ | 10/15/12 | Gunner Stanson

Posted on 10/15/2012 5:35:23 PM PDT by Nachum

The Catholic Diocese of Colorado Springs has thrown down the guantlet to Vice President Joe Biden -- don't come here and expect to partake in Holy Communion.

It seems Bishop Michael Sheridan, the person in charge of Catholics in Colorado Springs, doesn't approve of Biden's stance on abortion.

The Bishop, following church doctrine, is opposed to abortion. Biden, meanwhile, has said he doesn't support the practice, but doesn't believe it should be illegal.

In 2007 Sheridan wrote: "Any Catholic politicians who advocate for abortion, for illicit stem cell research or for any form of euthanasia ipso facto place themselves outside full communion with the Church and so jeopardize their salvation. Any Catholics who vote for candidates who stand for abortion, illicit stem cell research or euthanasia suffer the same fateful consequences. It is for this reason that these Catholics, whether candidates for office or those who would vote for them, may not receive Holy Communion until they have recanted their positions and been reconciled with God and the Church in the Sacrament of Penance."

When’s the last time Biden went to a church that wasn’t a political stunt? Can he even walk into one without being stuck down? I get the feeling that if he were to hold a crucifix, the skin touching it would smolder a bit.

The good bishop should be very careful crossing the street between now and election time. He just told catholics that they can’t be catholic and vote for Ob/Bi

Joe’s going to hell anyway. He is a prime example of one whom Malachi Martin often referred to as the “perfectly possessed.”

There are bishops, and then there are bishops. Yes, many Catholics have been asking that question for a long time.

Loving that the Catholic Church found its balls, at least in Colorado Springs it did.

At the end of the article....

——It should be noted that Colorado Springs Rev. Charles Robert Manning was accused of child sex abuse in January, 2012. The church took immediate action and placed Rev. Manning on “administrative leave.” Manning turned himself in in May.-——

They just can’t help themselves ....liberals must have a anti god gene...to smear the Catholic church...

Bishop Sheridan needs to have a come to Jesus meeting with the Bishop of Wilmington(DE).

Biden has been getting away with sacrilege for decades.

Dear Malachi Martin...he said he could see the possession in the eyes of those possessed...very upsetting. And I believed he died under suspicious circumstances.

Where are the OTHER 192 ordinaries in the United States?

Most of them are out to lunch, as usual.

Kudos, Bishop Sheridan.

The bishop has no means of enforcing his restriction but it's good for show since Biden isn't likely to rush to the church for communion anyway.
