“excommunicating powerful people is always iffy.”

Okay.

“The Pope has shown the courage to excommunicate the ones that might kill you.”

Do you think they necessarily care? Seriously, do you think they were regular church goers who will now be upset they’re cut off from the sacraments?

“I believe he is setting an example for the bishops to deal with the pro-abortion politicians.”

I hope so.

I'm not sure. Are they some kind of twisted Catholic that thinks providing drugs is a service?
Or are they like the terrorist who cloak themselves in the religion of Islam to commit atrocities and further their ulterior motives?
Maybe they see themselves as some sort of shadow government looking after the poor?

This is an interesting point. It made me think: would any priest even know when a mafia member came up for communion?
