First of all that is extremely unlikely to happen, but the answer is yes, I am instructed to serve communion

We had a couple come to our protestant church a while back. They sat there reading their satanic bibles and getting really really uncomfortable. I guess they wanted to disrupt the service but God had other plans for them. I don't remember if they came back and got saved but I know a lot of seed was planted that day.

Bummer on not being able to follow your conscience while serving

It's not a matter of "following his conscience." The disposition of another's soul is not yours or mine to judge, or their worthiness to receive the Eucharist.

Burke's stance has more to do with the scandal that is created by politicians taking positions publicly that contradict Church teaching.

There are likely lots of Catholics who are, wrongly, pro-choice, but they keep their mouths shut, so nobody knows.

Actually 1 Cor 5:1-5 (among others) gives authority to disfellowship someone over 'extreme' sin. Being an unrepentant baby killer falls into extreme sin in my book.

In the Catholic Church, the pastor or the bishop, the heads of the community, make that decision. Not laymen.

STONE MOUNTAIN WROTE: "Would this apply to those politicians who support the death penalty as well?"

------------------------------------

Why should it? The LORD GOD Himself not only allows the death penalty, He DEMANDS it! Christians and Jews should SUPPORT the death penalty.

Genesis 9:6--Whoever sheds the blood of man, BY MAN shall his blood be shed..."

And have you ever noticed that Jesus was COMPLETELY SILENT about the death penalty being carried out on the two THIEVES (i.e. NOT even murderers) who died on the cross on either side of Him? There was not even one peep out of Jesus regarding any so-called inhumanity of crucifying murderers, much less mere THIEVES.

If there was ever a time for Jesus to speak out on the subject of the death penalty, surely, THAT was the time to do so.

The pope apparently disagrees with you.

Actually, I got an answer to my question in posts 36 & 39 - thanks anyway, though...

Wouldn't be the first time a pope has disagreed with scripture.
