They don’t mince words in New York either…

A statement from Edward Cardinal Egan:

The Catholic Church clearly teaches that abortion is a grave offense against the will of God. Throughout my years as Archbishop of New York, I have repeated this teaching in sermons, articles, addresses, and interviews without hesitation or compromise of any kind. Thus it was that I had an understanding with Mr. Rudolph Giuliani, when I became Archbishop of New York and he was serving as Mayor of New York, that he was not to receive the Eucharist because of his well-known support of abortion. I deeply regret that Mr. Giuliani received the Eucharist during the Papal visit here in New York, and I will be seeking a meeting with him to insist that he abide by our understanding.

Tanya adds: I’m not Catholic, but I think I can shed some light on this.

“For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself” – 1 Corinthians 11:29

In other words, the Catholic Church is saying to Giuliani: “You’re Catholic, and you know better. So act like it, or you’re gonna get it, and not from me.”

It’s a spiritual “just wait ’til your father gets home.” Correct me if I’m wrong.
