To borrow from Tom Daschle, "I'm deeply saddened." Why? ... Because the Catholic Church has lain with the whore, to speak metaphorically, and Biblically!
Bishop Hart looked askance at this question. Then he said, Well, it would be a very rare situation that we would deny Communion to anyone.
Have you talked to Senator Dodd about his views on abortion and cloning?
That would be a personal thing, he said plainly.
Can you think of any circumstances in which Communion would be denied?
Bishop Hart paused. He turned slightly and thought the matter over for about ten seconds. Finally he said, with the air of someone genuinely stumped, I cant think of any situation where I would deny Holy Communion. In such a posture, communion wouldn't be Holy from this Bishop, merely a hollow ritual.
Such an man does not represent MY LORD and Savior. The Catholic Church presents itself as intermediary between man and God. If the Church cannot and/or will not as policy withhold the Flesh and Blood of My Lord from persons supporting the slaughter of fellow individual human beings, the Church is no longer in touch with God and has lain with the whore.
What the failure of the Church to uphold righteousness is leading to is the tacit acceptance of human cannibalism. Imagine, it will be the cannibalized bodies of individual human lives conceived solely for harvesting body parts that the Church will be completely impotent to oppose, because the Church has not stood for righteousness regarding the alive unborn with their own members!
The 'whoremongering' Church has given cover to the enemies of Life for so long now, the Church is no longer in touch with The Savior. Some Priests and Bishops still strive to serve Our Lord, but as a body, the edicts of the Holy Father are routinely ignored by Priests and Bishops thus giving cover to reprobate catholics. It is the Lord who will judge this whoremongering, this gross failure to be His Priests. It is the Lord's forgiveness the Church ought seek, and prove repentance with action.
The Church gives lip service to piety yet allows the practicing Catholic to establish the rules, individually. It is clear that Jesus is no longer the acknowledged leader of the Church, establishing what is written at the end of Judges, "In those days there was no King in Israel, and everyman did what was right in his own eyes." Read again what Bishop Hart asserted, and see in his smarmy complicity the words found in Judges: That would be a personal thing, he said plainly. Yes, to choose what is right and wrong is a personal thing, not the purview of a Church laying with The Whore.
