We are now hearing that Cupich is using his new-found bully pulpit to finagle the admittance to Holy Communion those embroiled in flagrant mortal sins: adulterers and sodomites, to be precise. These would be people currently and unabashedly continuing in their sinful situations, not those who have repented and made good Confessions.
LifeSiteNews and Voice of the Family recorded an interview given by Cupich in which he outlines his diabolical proposal. Let's look at a few salient points.
- Those adulterers and sodomites who feel marginalized do so because they have marginalized themselves by their embrace of mortal sin. Let us thank God for these "feelings" as they might be the impetus that these people need to repent. Let us pray that they do repent soon before they're marginalized for all eternity.
- "Conscience is inviolable"? No - not if it moves in contradiction to the teachings of Jesus Christ. Everyone of us - adulterers and sodomites included - have the solemn duty to form and inform our conscience in conformity with the Church.
Church Militant TV has added commentary. I'll be candid. Unless he's a complete dunderhead, the pope knew precisely what Cupich's pet causes were before he appointed Cupich to the see of Chicago and invited him to participate in the sin-nod. He didn't seek out Cupich despite his leanings; he sought Cupic because of his leanings.
They are trying to use the sin-nod to "mainstream" the gay lifestyle into acceptable Church practices, and allowing sodomites to come to Holy Communion would be a major step for them. Unfortunately it would also be a major step towards hell, for receiving Holy Communion in a state of mortal sin is its own mortal sin. Austin Ruse wrote a piece on the way that high Vatican official maltreated Kim Davis. They seem to harbor malevolence towards anyone who stands in the way of these goals or who exposes their malfeasances by virtue of their own proper conduct - thus their utter contempt for Kim Davis, a courageous lady who puts these Vatican officials to shame.
This sin-nod is, at best, an abysmal joke. Please consider signing this petition.
