Skip to comments.Someone Please Tell Melinda Gates that She is Excommunicated

In a recent interview with the Telegraph newspaper in the UK, Melinda Gates talked about why she decided to dissent from the teaching of the Catholic Church, but still seems to believe that she is a Catholic in good standing. She said:
"Ive traveled so much all over the world. India, Bangladesh; so many counties in Africa. And I would come home and the stories would ring in my head of the women I talked to on the ground in those counties. I go out to the rural areas. I go out to slums and townships, and I would be out to talk to women about vaccines what I was interested in for their children. And the women would say yes that is important, but what about that contraceptive tool. Why is that I used to be able to get a shot in my arm, which is the predominate form of birth control in Africa. They would say I cant get it anymore. Its a crisis. I cant have another child. I already have four. I can hardly feed these four. I need this tool. Why dont I have it?
And to me I just thought we use in our our countries. We use contraceptive widely in the UK and the United States. Those are decisions women make to plan and space the birth of children. It helps us have healthy children in our societies. And it became a rallying cry for me to answer those womens calls. So yes, I wrestled with my faith, but Im Catholic and I use contraceptives and I believe in them. So many Catholic women in my our country use them, and I think its the right thing for women all over the world."

she’ll be receiving communion Sunday between Pelosi and Kerry.
A belated welcome to FR.
Oh, there’s plenty I’d like to tell both Melinda and Bill.
Bill’s real forte’ was crooked business deals.
Someone should tell her that good deeds won’t get you in, lest anyone should boast.
‘healthy children in our society’????
What do you mean "was"?
Iow....let’s euthenize the ‘retards’. I despise Progressives.
Ever read the article on the guy who sold the operating system to Gates and Allen when they were starting out? What could have been..
“Ive traveled so much all over the world. India, Bangladesh; so many counties in Africa.”
I know you never visit or donate in European countries. Why is that?
Looking for immortality, aren’t you?
Apparently wealth and power are pretty good inoculations against being excommunicated.
Nancy Pelosi and Biden meet the Pope and take communion at the Vatican, Ted Kennedy and other such Catholics receive elaborate and very public Catholic burials, and the support of most Catholic voters, I doubt this woman has been ex-communicated.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
The Catholic Religion is NOT a”Cafeteria”!You don’t say:”Well,I’ll Have A Little Of This,But NONE Of That”!!!
Committed suicide, I believe.
People who live fantasies cannot be easily dissuaded from their delusions. Otherwise the Democratic Party would collapse.
Anyone know how a vaccine decreases population? To me, it would seem to work exactly opposite.
i’d stuff them full of their deadly polio vaccine.
Biden, Pelosi, Kerry, Gates, etc., are all going to receive Communion until we get a Pope who is bothered by abortion.
“I can’t have another child. I already have four. I can barely feed them”.
Well then, close your legs sweetie.
Would they still be taking communion at the Vatican and receiving those high profile Catholic burials which make a hero of them to the Catholic voters of America, and the Catholic voters of the world?
I would hope not. They have put themselves on the outside. But you ask a good question.
The thing is they are doing those things, which indicates that they are doing just fine and that the democrat politicians are meeting a need of the Catholic leadership’s political goals.
If you think you have a read on what the “Catholic leadership’s political goals” are, feel free to state them here, with documentation.
If you mean Kildall, I just read he fell in a bar
What Melinda Gates should be concerned with when she visits all of these places why these people still live in poverty in this day? What is she actually doing about that?
I feel free to post what I find reasonable, something that is unreasonable is 150 years of Catholics supporting the left, and someone thinking that Rome couldn’t put a stop to that within a few short years, at anytime, just as they could end their never ending support for immigration, which makes democrat politics in America inevitable.
The first thing, would be to stop maintaining the image of being the church of the democrat party leaders, from big city Mayors on up.
How big city mayors get chosen is beyond me, but I fail to see any anointing by Catholic leaders of the eventual winners.
When I tell you that I am posting you a fact, then you can request documentation, on this topic at this point, you and I only have opinions on this, in my case a lot of political and voting history knowledge as well.
Care to make a list of the most celebrity and popular Catholic politicians in America, and then look at their treatment by the Catholic church during their political careers and upon their deaths?
You don’t think that Rome could put the Catholic voters into the republican column within a few short years if they wanted to, and quit supporting the importation of millions of more pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage voters for the left, IF they wanted to?
I just realized, you aren’t aware of the Catholic church and immigration support in America?
You need to spend more time at FR.
We run post those threads when the Cardinals and Bishops state positions, and you can also watch the squirming on threads when the topic turns to stopping immigration, especially from Catholic Mexico, since it is the core of the immigration problem.
“We use contraceptive widely in the UK and the United States. Those are decisions women make to plan and space the birth of children.”
No we have contraceptives but most women in the US don’t use them. They use abortion as a contraceptive and that is how they “space the birth of children” if in fact after 3 to 5 abortion they can even have children.
The only time a vaccine decreases population is when pregnancy is treated like a disease.
You are the one who spoke of “the Catholic leaderships political goals.” I am just asking what those goals are. It won’t surprise me if something having to do with immigration reform is found there.
My husband and I traveled the world. We lived in Saudi Arabia five years and saw all the countries of the middle east. Those adventures strengthened my own Catholic faith. I also felt extremely lucky and thanked God to have been born and reared in this wonderful country.
Nobody gets into heaven without good deeds. Read the Bible.
However, if there is one man who can take the most credit for the 1965 act, it is John F. Kennedy. Kennedy seems to have inherited the resentment his father Joseph felt as an outsider in Bostons WASP aristocracy. He voted against the McCarran-Walter Act of 1952, and supported various refugee acts throughout the 1950s.
In 1958 he wrote a book, A Nation of Immigrants, which attacked the quota system as illogical and without purpose, and the book served as Kennedys blueprint for immigration reform after he became president in 1960. In the summer of 1963, Kennedy sent Congress a proposal calling for the elimination of the national origins quota system. He wanted immigrants admitted on the basis of family reunification and needed skills, without regard to national origin.
After his assassination in November, his brother Robert took up the cause of immigration reform, calling it JFKs legacy. In the forward to a revised edition of A Nation of Immigrants, issued in 1964 to gain support for the new law, he wrote, I know of no cause which President Kennedy championed more warmly than the improvement of our immigration policies. Sold as a memorial to JFK, there was very little opposition to what became known as the Immigration Act of 1965.
And brother Ted was one of the co-sponsors in the Senate and the one who pushed it through.
