For decades, the Abortion Lobby has bankrolled self-proclaimed “Catholic” Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden.
But after the radical abortion “up to birth” legislation passed in New York, pro-life Christians are livid, and are raising the heat on Democrats all across the nation.
And what this Catholic Bishop just instructed his diocese to do drew a clear line in the sand.
Bishop Thomas Daly of Spokane, Washington recently wrote a letter to his diocese that ripped those in the Church who support abortion.
Daly said “Politicians who reside in the Catholic Diocese of Spokane… should not receive Communion without first being reconciled to Christ and the Church.”
He also added that “efforts to expand access to abortion… is evil,” and “for a Catholic political leader to do so is scandalous.”
This is a direct attack on Democrats who proclaim to be “Catholic” but support abortion.
Daly points out that in no way is Catholicism reconcilable with the evil of abortion.
The National Catholic Register writes:
When Father Bob Dunn read the headlines sparked by his friend Spokane Bishop Tom Daly’s strong corrective for Catholic politicians who promote abortion rights, the New York City priest told his friends, “This is the type of witness we need.”
“Politicians who reside in the Catholic Diocese of Spokane, and who obstinately persevere in their public support for abortion, should not receive Communion without first being reconciled to Christ and the Church,” Bishop Thomas Daly wrote in a Feb. 1 letter to his diocese that referenced Canon 915 of the 1983 Code of Canon Law.
“Efforts to expand access to abortion, allowing murder of children up to the moment of birth, is evil,” added Bishop Daly. “For a Catholic political leader to do so is scandalous.”
Bishop Daly, 58, released his indictment of pro-abortion Catholic lawmakers just days after New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Catholic, signed a bill that allowed abortions through nine months of pregnancy.
These Democrats like Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Tim Kaine, and many others, are spitting in the face of Catholicism.
One one hand they claim to be Catholic, but on the other hand they support the murder of innocent babies.
One can’t say they trust Christ and His Word, and then turn a blind eye to the horrors of abortion.
And Daly is setting a great example for other Catholic clergy and Christian leaders to follow.
The reality is, for far too long Christians have failed to hold accountable politicians who are propped up by the abortion industry.
But with the latest abortion up-to-birth laws that have passed in New York, and similar laws being proposed in Virginia, Rhode Island, New Mexico and more, the pro-life movement is starting to see public opinion sway their direction.
Just like Daly, millions of Americans are disgusted with these laws that give no regard to the sanctity of life.
And it just might be the push in the court of public opinion the pro-life movement needs to see Roe v. Wade overturned.
Do you think Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, and other pro-abortion Catholic politicians should be denied Communion until they repent?
