American Bishop: Pro-choice=No Communion

PATERSON, New Jersey, June 19, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Pro-choice Catholics, not just Catholic politicians, must not receive Communion if they knowingly support legalized abortion says an American Catholic bishop.

"By steadfastly choosing to be pro-choice, a Catholic -- politician or not -- excludes himself or herself from communion," wrote Bishop Arthur J. Serratelli in the June 7 edition of the Beacon, the Paterson diocese newspaper.


I'm glad the good bishop is standing up for the Catholic Faith. What remains to be seen is whether the bishop will actually deny a Catholic who is against fetal rights.

I've noticed that about some clergy: they are willing to state that opposing fetal rights excludes someone from Communion, but they appear unwilling to do the "dirty work" in denying them.
