Skip to comments.New Pope: No Communion for Pro-Abortion Politicians
Posted on 03/13/2013 1:57:18 PM PDT by BarnacleCenturion
New Pope Francis I is a conservative in the mold of his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI and Pope John Paul II. Thats especially true on the issue of abortion, which he called a death sentence for the unborn in 2007. We arent in agreement with the death penalty, he said during that speech, but in Argentina we have the death penalty. A child conceived by the rape of a mentally ill or retarded woman can be condemned to death.
In his writings, Francis wrote, we should commit ourselves to eucharistic coherence, that is, we should be conscious that people cannot receive holy communion and at the same time act or speak against the commandments, in particular when abortions, euthanasia, and other serious crimes against life and family are facilitated. This responsibility applies particularly to legislators, governors, and health professionals.
Francis is also anti-euthanasia: Today, he wrote, elderly people are discarded when, in reality, they are the seat of wisdom of the society. The right to life means allowing people to live and not killing, allowing them to grow, to eat, to be educated, to be healed, and to be permitted to die with dignity.

brilliant, I;m not Catholic but very happy to have seen this and know he stands for his religious beleifs.
Take note Pelosi, Kennedy family and other pro killing babies, homosexuals, etc
Ha! San Fran Nan comes to mind.
BIG GRIN! Like the guy already!
I’m loving him more and more!!!!
I don’t think the types like the Kennedy family or Nancy Pelosi care anymore. They’re the vangard of secular thought and behavior in the States.
Ping to see how/if he follows through on this.
Sibelius the Ghoul comes to mine.
Don’t all the popes say that though? Maybe I’m wrong, but it seems to me that the (liberal) locals do as they please anyway.
I like this Pope already. I’m not a Catholic but I don’t see him ever backing down on abortion and traditional marriage.
Again, bless him. How refreshingly...Christian of him.
Awesome. And Joe Biden is leading the U.S. delegation to the Inauguration Mass. Can’t wait to see how that goes.
Maybe we’re watching the ascendancy of a more, not less, Christian world.
Thank you for the pictures. There is hope in the world.
Saying it is one thing. He needs to give the orders to all the bishops around the world to not give Communion to those who are proponents of abortion and euthanasia.
Watched it from the Front Row of my 60”. Was on my knees for the reconciliation and the blessing. First time I wept in quite a while.
I hope there are people prepared to document whether Biden receives Communion in Rome.
Now we have to see if American bishops will dare to enforce the new edicts.
Here is hoping that Pope Francis will also publicly condemn same-sex “marriage” and tell the 54% of Catholics who think it is OK that it is NOT OK. Take it or leave it.
Oh, and by the way MSM, there will not be any female priests.
[There is hope in the world.]
I share your belief, I prayed mightily for a good Pope.
And thank you, I think the pictures inspire us.
I, for one, have permanently stored this thread for future reference!
Buh-Bye Biden and your clan!!!
the north east should be one of the most conservative areas in this country and yet turd pushers, cross dressers, killing babies is rife.
I hope these bishops do what they were told and if not the Pope takes them to Rome.
The lapdog corrupt biased MSM are not happy LOL, expect to see an all out assault on the man and his past now.
Well it’s about TIME!!!
Excommunicate Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, all Kennedys, all Cuomos. etc, etc.
It’s high noon in the RCC!!
Praying for that day.
and good riddance.
Fake Catholics vote for the left as they vote for killing babies, homosexuality, death to the elderly etc
I’m not Catholic either, but if we don’t stick to scripture Christianity will be remolded into the one world church!
Christians saw the Episcopal Church go dwn the tubes decades ago because they didn’t stick to scripture.
Sally Quinn is deeply saddened.
The liberal Jesuits have given the Jesuits a very bad name.
At one time, Pope Francis I was the Jesuit Provincial (head of a Jesuit Province). That particular part of his biography comes up because he was accused of not doing enough to free some priests from the military.
One report said that as Jesuit provincial, he did behind the scenes work to free the priests.
This story may be cropping up to slander this Pope...
Yes, I think we all wept today, amidst all of our praying!
If you want to be a Catholic there is a certain level of moral behavior required.
If you want to promote and support abortion of babies, have lesbian women as pastors, and have your church approve of sodomy and homosexual relations the Catholic church is not for you.
People who want these things will find there are many other churches where they will feel right at home.
I’m not Catholic, but I think I like this guy already.
Francis is also anti-euthanasia: Today, he wrote, elderly people are discarded when, in reality, they are the seat of wisdom of the society.
Sounds very anti-Obamacare and those death panels...I could find a way to wrap around this philosophy...
Have Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden been excommunicated yet? They are LONNNNNNNNG overdue for that!
While not Catholic - I support this 100%. But then again, I don’t think Pro-Murder Baptists, Methodists, Non-Doms, etc. should get communion either.
Is this really enforceable? I mean, is he just blowing smoke (excuse the pun.)?
Can a pro-abortion “catholic” just go to confession before mass and “get right” long enough to take communion, and then go about their baby killing afterward?
How great would it be if San Fran Nan slithered to the communion rail and was denied.
That one act could send a lot of people back to church.
And the entire Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
I don’t believe they can if they have been ex-communicated.
elderly people are discarded when, in reality, they are the seat of wisdom of the society.”
I could not agree with this statement more. This is probably the most misunderstood and regularly discarded fact of the last 80+ years.
Particularly here in America where programs were created to separate the young from their elder kin leading to the corruption of that young and the progressive break down of the underpinnings of our civilization(Family).
There is much more to know and learn about life than the “fact” we are taught in school, by men & women who for the most part have no practical experience in any field but the field of education.
Why is it that the oldest and most experienced of our civilization are discarded instead of harnest to pass on that experience & the life lesions they learned to the youngest of their kin?
We have for 80 odd years been systematically losing the core values enencal to a stable individual, family, and civilization because quite frankly they are not being passed on effectively, by thoses who have learned it.
Instead we are paying for so call “professal” who have no such proven life experience to pass on in the first place. Is it any wonder that this so called professional class called Teachers have not only failed in their duty but produced each generation of children less capable and more self-destructive than the last?
I’m sure that supreme pontiffess Pelosi and abort’n Joe Biden will teach him the proper doctrine as they belive it. (sarcasm)
I don’t think denying communion is the same as excommunication. Correct me if I’m wrong.
“”Excommunicate Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, all Kennedys, all Cuomos. etc, etc.”
And the entire Commonwealth of Massachusetts.”
I am quite sure that we might find 50 rigous people in Massachusetts, but i think we would find it much easier for them 50 to simply leave that state for more free lands than to try and control that which is otherwise wicket.
In any-event Massachusetts does its own sorting with high taxes and regulations driving up the cost of living as to prohibit many from living there without either assistance or great means.
The remainder who cannot afford to reside in Massachusetts have already left for other states.
I’ll drink to that...
