Two more Catholic bishops, Archbishop Alexander Sample of Portland, Oregon, and Bishop James Conley of Lincoln, Nebraska, have thrown their “full support” for a vote on eucharistic sanctions on pro-abortion politicians, according to the Catholic News Agency

LifeNews.com reports

“Some of my brother bishops have asked to delay the process, but this would be a failure of our pastoral responsibility and a failure of collegiality,” Sample said in a May 25 statement. “It would also be contrary to the guidance recently provided by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.”

Sample said he supports USCCB president Archbishop Jose Gomez’s plans to take action on the matter at the bishops’ June meeting.

Multiple other bishops have raised concerns over pro-abortion politicians receiving the Eucharist, including Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, where Nancy Pelosi represents. Cordileone said, denying Communion may be “the only recourse a pastor has left” if pro-abortion politicians refuse to listen to reason and obstinately persist in their sin.

He wrote, “I tremble that if I do not forthrightly challenge Catholics under my pastoral care who advocate for abortion, both they and I will have to answer to God for innocent blood.” 

Joe Biden, who professes to be a Catholic, beat out Barack Obama as the most pro-abortion occupant of the White House according to Life News.

really doesn’t matter; what the Catholic Church does…what matters is when Pelosi and Biden pass away they will ultimately have to answer for their SINS, and it won’t be pretty. God ultimately will Judge them, regardless of how devout and faithful they claim to be. I, nor anybody else can Judge them, BUT THEY WILL BE JUDGED IN ETERNITY….I wouldn’t want to be them

I’m not understanding why a “vote” is necessary. Surely it is understood among the clergy that this goes directly against God’s Word. How can anyone serving God at this level in the Catholic Church have a differing opinion?

Why isn’t government approved abortion a racist issue. If the percentages were shown I believe that blacks are the highest users and thus it could be a deceptive way of reducing their population.

It should be a long the line from City council members to joKe, they support abortion they get no communion…and stop calling themselves Christians.
