Mafiosi are Excommunicated: Pope

I love this pope:

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis concluded his one-day trip to the southern Italian region of Calabria with strong words against the Calabrian mafia, calling it “adoration of evil and contempt for the common good.”

“Those who in their lives have taken this evil road, this road of evil, such as the mobsters, they are not in communion with God, they are excommunicated,” he said to applause.

Now if he could just say that about pro-abort politicians, that would make my day.

In fairness, I don`t think this qualifies as a canonical excommunication, but-- close enough.
