Targeting Biden, Catholic Bishops Advance Controversial Communion Plan

The Roman Catholic bishops of the United States, flouting a warning from the Vatican, have overwhelmingly voted to draft a statement on the sacrament of the Eucharist, advancing a political push by conservative bishops to deny President Biden communion because of his support of abortion rights.

The decision, made public on Friday afternoon, is aimed at the nation’s second Catholic president, the most religiously observant commander in chief since Jimmy Carter, and exposes bitter divisions in American Catholicism. It capped three days of contentious debate at a virtual June meeting of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. The measure was approved by a vote of 73 percent in favor and 24 percent opposed ....

You had to know this was coming. The US Catholic Bishops are right-wing extremists whose conservatism makes middle-of-the-road Pope Francis look like AOC. They loved Trump ... his anti-women and anti-gay stances were music to their ears. Now that Biden, a Catholic Democrat, is president, out comes their wafer-blackmail ploy.

Won't work, though. I believe most Catholics are sick of having communion used as a weapon against those who don't fall in line with the church's defunct teachings. Much as the Bishops would like to, they cannot stand between people and God.

It is depressing how the bishops seem to have so embraced the political divide.

Food and drink from the table of Christ is not a doggy biscuit that gets tossed to those who follow the rules! It is Medicine that can heal the wounded soul.

Hi Steve. Yes. At the last supper, even Judas got to eat the bread and drink the wine.
