I’ve been waiting for the press to notice, evidently they don’t care.
Senator Dick Durbin is a member of a Catholic church in Springfield. He has been banned by the Diocese of Springfield from taking communion for his failure to protect unborn life.
Evidently church teachings do matter!
A vote was taken in the US Senate to ban abortions after 20 weeks – 5 months.
Durbin along with every other Democrat (including 13 catholic church members) voted against it.
From the Press release:
Canon 915 of the Catholic Church’s Code of Canon Law states that those “who obstinately persist in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.”
The only question now is: Will Durbin risk a very unpleasant eternity for the Democrat Party?
What about the 13 others?
I congratulate the Catholic church for taking a stand for what you believe in.
