Thank you Gov. Cuomo for telling us how your coloring-book Catholicism since the Second Vatican Council has malformed you and your conscience. Maybe you can sue Vatican II?
It matters not to Gov. Cuomo that he has made himself into a despot. It matters not to him that he by signing a bill into law, now enables the murders of babies. Maybe he won't murder any. I don't think Hitler himself executed any Jews, but he made laws that allowed it and there were many willing to do the work for Hitler.
He can cry crocodile tears for how bishops have enabled the molestation of minors by priests, but he would be a hypocrite. Because he is enabling something even more heinous than that.
It is clear that Gov. Cuomo could care less if he is excommunicated, chastised by his bishop or even the pope or has some kind of interdict levied against him. That's his prerogative. But Catholics need for some sanction to be placed against him and his heresies enumerated as placing him and any others outside the full communion of the Catholic Church. Catholicism isn't a make it up as you go religion despite what we have been taught or have taught since Vatican II.
So here we have a post-Vatican II Catholic who is actually a Post-Catholic, Post-Christian. Here are his very own words to confirm this diagnosis:
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday shrugged off criticism and even calls from Roman Catholic leaders for his excommunication from the church over his support of a new state abortion law.
Saying he is duty-bound to separate his religious views from his work as governor, Cuomo, a Democrat, defended his support for the state's Reproductive Health Act, which he signed last week.
The bill mostly codifies abortion rights protected in Roe v. Wade and other federal abortion rulings.(Please notice how Associated Press thinks it is no big deal--the murder of children!)
"I have my own Catholic beliefs, how I live my life. ... That is my business as a Catholic," Cuomo said. "I don't govern as a Catholic. I don't legislate as a Catholic."
Catholic bishops in Knoxville, Tennessee, and Tyler, Texas, tweeted support for excommunicating Cuomo from the church after he signed the abortion bill last week.
My final comment: We now know that when the Democrats are in power in legislatures, state governors and in the Federal government, they will pass the most liberal and hienous abortion bills and allow babies to die full term at birth by legalized murder.
Is a day coming, and I hope soon, that Catholics who profess to belong to the Democrat Party will be excommunicated automatically? I personally hope so. It would be worse than being a Mason or a Fascist!
