All about the churches power and not the power of Christ.

The church is very hesitant to excommunicate, seeing it as a very powerful spiritual act, but it is a lot more popular among the laity who view it as punishment to those who openly and maliciously attack the church and their faith.

As valid as a marriage of Barbie and Ken.

, ie a "serious offense", which may lead to the excommunication

It MAY? It MAY?

Is the Church that afraid of its members? This dame is not a priest since you can't have a woman be a priest, so what's the problem?

I don't understand why this is a MAY issue, just like throwing Pelosi and any other pro-murder of unborn and newly born American babies the hell out of the Church with a public display of their madness. What . . . they might get some bad publicity? Doesn't the Church stand for anything anymore?

She will “celebrate” an “Easter” mess. Mockery.

Of course if she were just reading the Bible and Christ’s own words to remember His sacrifice through the communion, it wouldn’t really matter, only her heart with God.

The Catholic church might have something to say about this, but it wouldn’t endanger her soul, unless she isn’t serious when practicing it. I am a protestant, and it’s not a big deal to me.

My 4 year old son likes to do this. He even has a little chasuble and everything. The difference is that even at 4 he KNOWS he is not a priest.
