Yesterday at St Anthony Catholic Church in Florence SC (Diocese of Charleston), the pastor, Father Robert Morley, denied Holy Communion to rabid pro-abortion Joe Biden. Father Morley told the reporters that it was his responsibility to do so - and he's quite correct.
Here is the contact information from the parish website. Please go to it and contact Fr. Morley to support his actions. You may rest assured that progressives of every stripe are slamming him right and left. They are also most likely crabbing to his bishop, so please go to that site and put in a good word for Father Morley. Bishop Robert Gugliemone appears not to have his own email so this contact page will have to do.
Please contact them and pass this post along. You can bet your bottom dollar that progressives of all stripes are hammering on Father Morley as we speak.

I don't agree with this so called man of God. It is not his place to judge. He is Not God, but a mere man. I have been Catholic all my life and never had an abortion, but can only sympathize with women who have made what I can imagine is a very difficult dicision. Where is the love?ReplyDelete
You are quick to claim that "it is not his place to judge", right after you called him "so-called man of God". The latter, for its condescension, sounds quite judgmental to me. He is not God, but he is an ordained priest, an alter Christus. Read Canon 915. It most assuredly is the priest's place to deny a manifest grave sinner Holy Communion; in fact, it is his solemn duty to do so.Delete
As far as sympathizing with an abortion-bound woman, do you think to offer a smidgeon of that sympathy to the poor child who will bear the ultimate consequence for his/her mother's "difficult decision"? The fact is that no one has the right to murder an innocent child, regardless of how "difficult" that decision is. Where is the love, you ask? Good question! Where is your love for God? Where is your love for the unborn child slated to undergo the brutal murder known as abortion?
Restore dc catholism, your holier than thou attitude is sure a turnoff! I can understand if you or Robert Morley takes care of all these unwanted children by financially and emotionally support! But you rather preach of what is right and wrong. There are so many children in this life that are tortured and also done within the Catholic church. Clean it up first then maybe you and he are entitled to deny someone communion!Delete
So by your logic no one is allowed to advocate for battered women unless they are willing to take care of them. That is how ridiculous your thinking is. As for tortured children, approximately 125,000 unborn children are tortured to death via abortion, usually by being ripped apart limb by limb. Your support of that is not only a "turnoff" but a danger to your immortal soul.Delete
Not his place to judge???? He has an obligation as an ordained Priest to defend the Magisterium, administer the Sacraments and protect the Blessed Sacrament from such abuse as described. We are asked to "judge" always that is the purpose of a well formed conscience. I applaud his courage and understand it might offend progressives and liberals. Abortion is murder. My heart goes out to those women who made such a decision. Why not find ways to support women who are in need of help in these situations instead of defending the worst possible solution.....murder. By the way, it is not your place to judge the laws of the Church or the actions of a minister who obeys them.Delete
Well said Tom.Delete
Advise Joe Biden or any Catholic politician who advocates abortion to spend an hour at an Adoration Chapel instead of presenting themselves for reception of the Holy Eucharist, the Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ and maybe bring a Catholic Catechism or a copy of the Ten Commandments with them for reflection.

Excellent idea! Then they should hightail it to Confession immediately.Delete
