For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus, the same night in which he was betrayed, took bread. And giving thanks, broke, and said: Take ye, and eat: this is my body, which shall be delivered for you: this do for the commemoration of me. In like manner also the chalice, after he had supped, saying: This chalice is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as often as you shall drink, for the commemoration of me. For as often as you shall eat this bread, and drink the chalice, you shall show the death of the Lord, until he come. Therefore whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord. But let a man prove himself: and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of the chalice. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh judgment to himself, not discerning the body of the Lord.

“The Speaker only would need to open up her Bible...”
I have a feeling she simply shows up at Mass, receives the sacraments and, occasionally, hears someone tell her what is in the Bible and how she should believe it. Apparently, her eyes are tired after a day of reading all the bills, regulations, and cards and letters from her friends on the Left Coast. She’s not just a nobody you know. She has a responsible position. ;-)
Simply put, someone who receives the Eucharist while not in a state of sanctifying grace (i.e. supporting and promoting the murder of the unborn) brings a judgement, a curse of death, upon their soul, they are committing sacrilige, and profaning the Eucharist.
The Speaker only would need to open up her BibleI doubt that the same airhead who fabricated a quote from "the Old Testament" (could she name a single book if she had to?) would even know where to where to begin looking for that passage.
