The New York Times > Bishop Would Deny Rite for Defiant Catholic Voters

Posted by David Leslie on May 14, 2004

I find it very disturbing as a Christian that communion could be withheld like this. This quote alone upset me the most
The bishop wrote that Catholics who vote contrary to church teaching “jeopardize their salvation.”

To imply that a vote contrary to Church teaching could jeopardize one’s salvation is spiritual abuse. As if the Church hasn’t had enough problems on its own. I wonder if the Bishop’s issued any such warnings to those clergy involved in sexual abuse of their parishioners?
