Abortion supporting catholics ought to be ashamed
VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - The Vatican on Thursday said too many Roman Catholics were not taking their religion seriously and that those faithful who receive communion and still support abortion rights were behaving scandalously.

In an 88-page working document for a synod of bishops to be held in October, the Vatican also decried dwindling attendance at Sunday Mass and reaffirmed a rule that Catholics who divorce and remarry outside the Church cannot take communion.

2. What about all the annulments that the church sells?
"reaffirmed a rule that Catholics who divorce and remarry outside the Church cannot take communion."

5. Pedophile protecting churches ought to be ashamed!
The Vatican needs to clean up their house before they start judging the neighbors.

7. The stench of hypocrisy is palatable.
I don't recall abortion being a tenet of Catholicism when I was growing up. Why not focus on sex abuse of priests and the immorality of killing millions of birthed people for corporate profits?

8. Umm, maybe the new pope is...
... a bit unclear on the concept. To simplify, when the church no longer speaks to the needs of the parishioners, and threatens them for not rigidly adhering to seventh-century dogma formulated by power-hungry gendercentric popes, then have two extra collections each Sunday for the legal fund and the cardinal's escape fund, they stop going to church.

How complicated is that?

Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 09:14 PM by bookman
They support choice. When will they ever learn the difference? (and there is one.)

10. I am confused
"Some Catholics do not understand why it might be a sin to support a political candidate who is openly in favor of abortion or other serious acts against life, justice and peace," it said."


Is he saying Catholics in the US should have stayed home and not voted for anyone? If you voted, you can't have communion?
