[quote:1hiid441]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.
If he is listening I’m sure not going to say anything negative about him.
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.
