Catholic Church Leaders Are a Bunch of Cowards
By Alicia Colon
The bishop who rushed to judgment on those Covington students finally apologized and said he was bullied into making a premature statement. Hogwash. We know that the media, the liberal left, and celebrities have been pounding on the church for sex scandals, but is that any excuse for caving in with fear from these secular critics? For many years we have watched so-called Catholic politicians enact laws contrary to church teaching without getting called on the carpet by their pastors.
Governor Andrew Cuomo was overjoyed signing the most egregious, evil legislation in New York State history, allowing abortions up to birth, and Cardinal Dolan says that excommunication for him is inappropriate. For heaven's sake, it's not as if Cuomo is even a practicing Catholic. Excommunication is different in the canon law of the Roman Catholic Church in that it is not a permanent separation but is a censure and considered a medicinal penalty intended to invite the person to change behavior, repent and return to full communion. The church is a spiritual community and has the right to exact rules and edicts that belong to it so that it can be well administered and survive. Members who, by their obstinate disobedience, reject the means to this common cause deserve to be removed from such a society.
Not only should Cuomo be excommunicated but any Catholic legislator that voted for this bill should be as well. That goes for CINOs (Catholics in name only) like Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, Joe Biden and other frauds who put on the mantle of the church at funerals, baptism, weddings when they should be ostracized. They should go join any of a multitude of Christian churches who mock the teachings of Christ.
Catholic leaders have become cowards preferring to look the other way when the rich and powerful pull out their wallets. Have the Kennedys been sterling examples of the faith? Do pro-abortion Democrat Catholics have the nerve to blatantly receive the Holy Eucharist because they know the priest won't dare refuse them?
Cardinal Dolan was on Fox News (video here) explaining that by excommunicating Cuomo this would be perceived by critics as just a Catholic issue. So what, Cardinal? It became clear during this broadcast that Dolan is just as much a politician as any Democrat finding rationalization for their sins. His job as a leader of the Church is to give moral guidance to the flock with the apostolic authority given by Christ. In Luke 17:1-2, Jesus tells his disciples: "Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes!" Surely, the very idea of abortion being permitted until the day of birth should be a condemnable offense, but just because God's mercy forgives all sins doesn't mean that the offense should ever be permitted or excused.
Why has the church become so weak-kneed in ignoring its mission? Certainly the church has been under endless attacks by the left slamming it for sexual assaults by priests, and yet by the numbers, these charges, some unconfirmed, are minuscule given those committed in schools and the entertainment world. It is very easy to accuse someone of sexual assaults that occurred decades ago when the accused has died but the church seems to be more concerned with public relations than pointing out right and wrong and permitting abortion till birth is very, very evil.
Read the rest at American Thinker. A word from Tim:
This stuff started before the pedophilia scandals, so the premise that this is a fear reaction over that is incorrect.
Fay Voshell adds:
It carries little weight if you are Andrew Cuomo. But it sends a big message to Catholics who are actually Catholics; namely, that one cannot remain a Catholic and support the murder of children.

This medication is used to help relieve severe ongoing pain (such as due to cancer). Oxycodone belongs to a class of drugs known as opioid (narcotic) analgesics. It works in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain.
The higher strengths of this drug (more than 40 milligrams per tablet) should be used only if you have been regularly taking moderate to large amounts of opioid pain medication. These strengths may cause overdose (even death) if taken by a person who has not been regularly taking opioids.
Do not use the extended-release form of oxycodone to relieve pain that is mild or that will go away in a few days. This medication is not for occasional ("as needed”) use.
