New York bishops will not deny Communion to pro-abortion politicians

The bishops of New York State will not deny Holy Communion to politicians who support abortion and same-sex marriage, according to Bishop Howard Hubbard of Albany.

“Some bishops have done that but not all bishops have done that,” he said. “Quite frankly, there is a disagreement among bishops about using the communion line as a place for a confrontation. And I don’t think that the bishops of New York State feel that’s appropriate.”

And how's that workin' for ya? Has it made support of gay marriage and abortion seem to be really a really serious sin? Do tell.
