    Last year, a Catholic Bishop call for denying someone to give a Communion. Because he has a different political views. I need everyone feedback on this issue.
    I truely beleived that this is one of the example of particular American Bishop that abuse the authority that was given to him. I can not mention his name but I know he is listenning. I want to say he is just a servant of God and this is the only authority was given to him and he need to redefined what it is to be a follower of our Lord Jesus.
    God Bless

    I was under the impression that, on occasion, a bishop can choose to deny someone communion when he feels the circumstances call for it. What are the specifics? What’s going on?

    I agree with Candleflame, the situation and specifics make a huge difference. If the bishop is abusing his authority then to Rome we go. It is our right as brothers in Christ and part of the Body to “cut off” any infections that may spread to the rest of the Body. But not to worry, disease and infections in the body are nothing new to the Church. The church has always found a way of getting rid of such things. <img src=” title=”Wink” />

    Remember, “….and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against thee”.

    Believe Him when he says that.

    Hi Risktaker,

    If he is listening I’m sure not going to say anything negative about him. :lol:

    I recall a while back something about a politician being denied Holy Communion because of the way he voted on a moral issue. Is this what you are referring to? I don’t believe a Bishop should deny Holy Communion to someone because he or she disagrees with him about an issue such as tax cuts. But if its a serious moral issue such a supporting abortion, that’s different. In that case the politician needs to redefine what it is to be a follower of our Lord Jesus.

    This is only my opinion. I’m feeling a lot more conservative as of late. I truly do not know where the church stands on such issues.

    Brothers & Sisters,
    Thanks for all your feedback. I don’t think that person voted in favor nor against specific moral issue. The Bishop just didn’t listen first before he miss judge the fellow brethren. If Jesus Christ can forgive the Sinners, can we do less? One of the Greatest teaching of our Lord Jesus is not to Judge so we wont be Judge. There are many moral issue that we need to address to the world, not by suppressing the law to the people that leads only to turning people away instead of bringing people back to God. We can still address the moral issue to the people in a Loving way that leads toward preserving and protecting life.
    God Bless :lol:
