Bravo to Pope Francis who has condemned abortion in words stronger than any of his predecessors. And implied in this powerful condemnation and judgment is that a person who has or promotes abortions is not a Christian and certainly isn't a Catholic! Thus they are forbidden to receive Holy Communion. But mercy abounds for those who repent, go to Confession, do their penance, amend their lives and publicly become pro life!
These are Pope Francis' words, lightly reported by the liberal media, in that infamous interview above the Atlantic:
"Abortion is not the lesser of two evils. It is a crime. It is to throw
someone out in order to save another. That’s what the Mafia does. It is a
crime, an absolute evil... Abortion is not a theological problem, it is a human problem, it is a
medical problem. You kill one person to save another, in the best case
scenario. Or to live comfortably, no? It’s against the Hippocratic oaths
doctors must take. It is an evil in and of itself, but it is not a
religious evil in the beginning, no, it’s a human evil. Then obviously,
as with every human evil, each killing is condemned."
We can certainly make connections to Bernie Sanders, who is not a Christian, but participates in this crime by his rabid and radical pro choice politics.
We can certainly make connections to Hillary Clinton, who is not a Christian for her support of this crime even to the 9th month in the most gruesome procedure called partial birth abortion.
We can certainly say this about Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden, both of whom, because of their pro-abortion stances in order to sell their souls to the devil to win political office, promote this horrible crime as Pope Francis calls it.
In fact, Pope Francis should side with Cardinal Burke and tell Catholic public figures, politicians or otherwise, they are not Catholic and thus should not present themselves for Holy Communion as though it is some kind of talisman for their own self promotion and self edification. His Holiness could start with the Cardinal Archbishop of Washington, DC and demand that His Eminence issue an edict publicly excommunicating any Catholic politician in Washington, DC who is pro choice which explicitly says that they are not Catholic and may not and cannot receive Holy Communion.
Wouldn't that put some teeth into Pope Francis' declarations about who aren't Christians.
