What known pro-choice person HAVE they turned away from receiving Communion? Anywhere in the country? What instructions on this has the Pope given to the bishops of the world?
Ignoring their own teachings is hypocritical and certainly gives bad example to the whole church.
"Believe and obey all the teachings of the Church and confess your sins to a priest."
"Ignore the fact that your spiritual shepherds lack the courage to enforce the teachings of the Church."
Shame on me for using the intelligence God gave me.
If the pope should remove cowardly and compromising bishops because they tolerate professing Catholics that aid and abet the abortion practice, then why shouldnt the pope also be removed for electing to be quiet? Or do you believe that popes are exempt from exalting the high standards of Canon Law?
