Ooops sorry, hit the button too soon.
I have given you references of where my interpertation comes from. It is stated clearly in the documents I posted for you.
Your rebuttal has been, I don’t see it that way and you have given examples of your opinion.
That’s fine. Neither of us are right or wrong until the Vatican takes action. Understanding that neither of us are Vatican lawyers. My opinion runs true to what my pastor also believes (who btw has a PhD) so, you can call it false but I’ll go with his opinion, rather than yours. Luckily, we have a wonderful Priest who has no problem with guiding us in these matters.
If you can point our where I stated that this is the “authentic teaching of the church” or “Has been done” I am more than willing to retract it.
“Your rebuttal has been, I dont see it that way and you have given examples of your opinion.”
You have again misrepresented my view.
“Neither of us are right or wrong until the Vatican takes action.”
To have an opinion where there is not clarity is not wrong.
To say other than that it is one's opinion is wrong.
This opinion has been offered on different threads as the explanation of Catholic discipline to posters asking just what is Catholic discipline on this question.
To offer it as the explanation of Catholic discipline on the question is to falsify.
That is especially so in that you have not at all made a case justifying why pro-abort “Catholic” politicians can be said to have directly participated in the procurement of specific abortions. At this point, your assertion isn't even actually argued, just asserted. Try to make the argument.
But that's a bit off the point.
The point is that the idea that these folks are automatically excommunicated is being thrown around as an explanation of Catholic discipline as if it were a settled issue.
It is nothing close to that. At best, it's a theory, a speculation.
