Dear netmilsmom,

“Your rebuttal has been, I don’t 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.

The whole thing is totally off the point!
But if you like, you can take it up with my priest.
