Colorado Bishop Warns Catholics
Edited on Sat May-15-04 10:11 AM by dArKeR
Catholics who vote for politicians in favor of abortion rights, stem-cell research, euthanasia or gay marriage may not receive Communion until they recant and repent in the confessional, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Colorado Springs said.

Bishop Michael Sheridan's pronouncement was the strongest yet from a U.S. bishop in the debate over how faith should influence Catholics in this election year.

The discussion of withholding Holy Communion had previously been limited to politicians themselves.

Sheridan made his remarks in a May 1 pastoral letter published in the diocese's newspaper. He said he singled out abortion, stem-cell research, euthanasia and gay marriage for criticism because they are "intrinsically evil."

Bishop Michael Sheridan (Photo: CBS/AP) - (Reading first impression faces Sheridan looks "intrinsically evil" to me. With yesterdays 'Vatican discourages interfaith marriages' it's time for me to find a new faith.

4. He goes too far--I heard this guy defend why GOP sins are AOK
Like the death penalty and bribery or say gambling (Bingo anybody?)It seems there is such a thing as an officially recognized sin. Everybody who only indulges in the under-the-table-sins is Blessed of the Lord.

By exploiting a "letter of the law" perspective in a moral issue he is not just missing the point he is wiping it off the table. He is slick and well-rehearsed. It will not be easy to counteract such mercenaries of faith.

5. What's he gonna do, get Diebold to send over their
non existant records - What an idiot and what about the other intrinsically evils - like the use of nuclear weapons ( * administration would like to use), capital punishment by nations that have other means (like the US), policies that deepen and widen poverty. I continue to hold with Benardin. His seamless garment says it all. These bishops who are anti-Kerry are twice the fool and not qualified to be shepherds of the faithful.
