Rockford, Il (ProLifeCorner.com 1-18-2013 by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York is again viciously attacking human beings in the womb by pushing on-demand abortion legislation that, if enforced, could even put Catholic hospitals and many state-funded ministries out of business.

The Rockford Pro-Life Initiative is respectfully requesting Cardinal Dolan and the Bishops of New York to make public the excommunication of Gov. Cuomo that he has already incurred privately by his relentless attacks on children in the womb.
It is astonishing and a grave scandal that is deeply harming the faith of many Catholics that a man like Gov. Cuomo who by his policies, directives, and promotion of the killing of children in the womb and is directly and intentionally responsible for the mass murder of tens of thousands of children, is still a Catholic in good standing in New York.
How can anyone, friend or foe of the Catholic Church, ever take what the Church teaches seriously when Catholic politicians like Gov. Cuomo are using all of their political power to build the culture of death and destroy countless lives of children in the womb?
Cardinal Dolan and the Bishops of New York do have the power to make public the excommunication which Gov. Cuomo has already incurred. To do this Bishop Hubbard, Cardinal Dolan, and the Bishops of New York will need courage and our prayers to defend the Church and the unborn from “catholics” who murder the unborn by the millions.
When the Rockford Pro-Life Initiative called for the excommunication of Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn for his attacks on marriage and support for the killing of children in the womb, Canon Law expert Ed Peters objected.
What Dr. Peters is saying is a person who directly and intentionally makes possible and is responsible for the mass murder of thousands upon thousands of innocent children should not be excommunicated. We believe he is wrong, and dead wrong for the souls of those who support abortion and the lives of millions of babies.
We believe that when a person publicly declares himself to be a Catholic, uses his Catholic Faith to get elected to public office, and then uses his political power partially gained by the very fact he is Catholic to murder countless innocent babies, he is indeed automatically excommunicated, and any Church leader of courage and charity should make that excommunication public.
We base this decision on these five reasons that are grounds for excommunication.
1-Procuring of abortion. By his policies Gov. Cuomo is helping and directly responsible for thousands of women procuring abortions in New York.
2-Apostasy: The total rejection of the Christian faith. By his slaughter of thousands of innocent babies, Gov. Cuomo is making a mockery of the Catholic faith. You cannot murder babies with one hand and say Jesus is Lord with the other. Would Jesus Who said, “Whatever you do to the least of My people you do unto Me” say a person who is actively attempting to murder thousands of babies has rejected the Faith?
3-Heresy: The obstinate post-baptismal denial of some truth, which must be believed with divine and Catholic Faith. Gov. Cuomo who claims to be Catholic denies the truth that all human beings are created in the image and likeness of God. He denies the right to life of thousands of children. He denies all the Church teaches concerning the lives of the unborn. Gov. Cuomo denies the Commandment, “You shall not kill.”
4- Schism: The rejection of the authority and jurisdiction of the pope as head of the Church. Gov. Cuomo has clearly denied and in every way humanly possible attacked the authority of the Pope concerning the Gospel of Life.
5- Desecration of sacred species, Holy Communion. Gov. Cuomo uses the same hand to receive the Blessed Sacrament that he uses to sign laws that have resulted in the direct and intentional murder of countless thousands of children. If this is not desecration, then nothing is.
As long as Church leaders refuse to use their authority to excommunicate those who claim to be Catholics and are directly responsible for killing millions of children, we will have a Church that refuses to use her God-given authority to protect and love Her people.
In the case of Gov. Cuomo who has made it one of his priorities in life to slaughter the unborn, we will have a Church more and more people will see as cowardly, irrelevant, and hypocritical.
It doesn’t take a Canon lawyer or a Bishop to see that Catholics who are building the culture of death in America are prime examples of sad and tragic situations in need of correction.
Please respectfully contact Cardinal Dolan and Bishop Hubbard, and ask them to support the public excommunication of Gov. Cuomo.
Cardinal Dolan firstname.lastname@example.org
Howard J. Hubbard, Bishop of Albany email@example.com
Well, of course he does. However, if the Church hasn’t done it to any of the Kennedy’s or Pelosi... they won’t excommunicate him either. For once.. I personally would love them to do so.
The Church is happy with all but a sliver of Cuomo’s convictions. That will not warrant punishment.
Exactly. The Catholic Church is mostly a liberal organization. Aside from abortion, it is leftist on just about everything else from gun control to immigration to the death penalty. The Catholic Church isn't an ally in the fight against the secular socialists.
Dolan is a Democrat. Cuomo is a Democrat. Dolan will never get enough of snuggling up to Cuomo, along with every other Democrat baby-killer.
I misread the title and thought it said "publicly exicuted". One can only hope.
‘exicuted’ should be ‘executed’.
Why do Catholics allow this? Doesn’t the congregation mean anything to the leaders?
For bishops like Dolan, No.
What matters to Dolan is being “in” with Democrats. He has praised pro-abortion Democrats repeatedly as “good Christians” and “good Catholics.” He flatters himself that he has the “virtue” of “civility,” while the truth is that he just can’t get enough of snuggling up to people with power, who dispense government money.
He is a politician before he is a bishop, and Democrat before he is a Catholic.
Cardinal Dolan is too interested in his legacy in the NY Times.We will never forget his inviting a mass murderer,Obama to dinner.
Ain’t gonna happen.
Long as the “church” is making the kind of money they are they will do nothing to rock their gravey boat.
Just look at some “catholics”.
“Gov. Andrew Cuomo Needs To Be Publicly Excommunicated”...
...Yup! and the Bishop of Albany, NY who allows a sacrilegious communion by this reprobate Gov. should be removed as well.
A majority of Catholics voted for Obama...again. The leaders of the Catholic church are acting in line with flock.
The problem is the Catholic church is liberal. Aside from abortion, it is leftist on many/most major political issues.
Don't let the Catholic church's complaints about the healthcare mandate fool you. They may be riled up over that specific issue, but it won't stop them from loving and supporting Obama on nearly everything else.
Andy's abortion siloloquy? That sounds an awful lot like Andy's using Daddy Mario's Political Playbook.
Andy's daddy lit a firecracker under Andy's a**----so Andy's gotta go for it b/c Daddy screwed up his own prez bid.
Mario had it nearly sewed up but then-Gov Mario announced that he could not enter the 1998 New Hampshire primary because of his "obligation" to manage his state's budget crisis---alas, that was the swan song of Mario's long-running flirtation with the presidency going back to 1988.
He would have been the front-runner; expectations were high that he would run. Mario had even gone so far as to rush out of the Dem convention as a ploy to enhance his candidacy. But his timing was off; Mario deflated like a used condom.
Then Catholic Mario made that radically pro-abort speech at Catholic Notre Dame.
Is Andy's PR person booking him for a speech at Fordham?
And no......that does not refer to Andy's being an offspring of Mario.
But it was, in fact, the reason for Andy's divorce from his first wife....the Kennedy girl.
Adolf Cuomo has ex-communicated himself in a run for the POTUS. He cooked his goose. If there ever was a man worthy or ec-communication it is he and his old man. For him to receive the sacraments of the Catholic church is an abomination. It is very unfortunate that the leaders in the church are just like the Pubbies.....spines of linguini.
Who is Cuomo’s Bishop? If it’s one of the bishops up in your neck of the New York woods, I can tell you right now that it won’t happen.
I don't think it's indifference to the congregation, but quite the opposite. Our clergy, by and large, stand where their people do--- and that's the problem. They are "people pleasers" when when this is offensive to Almighty God.
That’ll be the day.
