Ireland United for Life has issued a press release pointing out that Taoiseach Enda Kenny has excommunicated all those who voted against the pro-abortion legislation from the Fine Gael Party telling them that as adults they should know the consequences of their actions.
Yes Enda and what about the actions of Catholic adults who persist in voting for abortion and other anti life agendas despite being warned their actions are contrary to church teaching can they remain in Communion with the Church?
The Press Release reads:
Enda Kenny says that those in Fine Gael who voted against the abortion Bill are all "adult people" who should know the consequences of their actions.Speaking from Berlin he said, “They know the consequences of this, and therefore I don't expect that they can be candidates for the Fine Gael party in the next general election. I would find that very difficult to have a position where people who know when they sign at the beginning what it is about," he said. Kenny rounded off his comments by saying "I hope I make that perfectly clear."Enda Kenny knows that as a catholic in the public square he must not support, promote or vote for abortion- the culture of death.The Pope has made it perfectly clear that abortion must not be de-criminalised.Catholic politicians who support abortion legislation should be refused Holy Communion, says Cardinal Raymond Burke, who heads the Apostolic Signatura, the Vatican's highest legal tribunal that rules on canon law."There can be no question that the practice of abortion is among the gravest of manifest sins" Catholic politicians who support abortion legislation should be refused Holy Communion, says Cardinal Raymond Burke. Once “a Catholic politician has been admonished that he should not come forward to receive Holy Communion,” the Cardinal added, “as long as he continues to support legislation which fosters abortion or other intrinsic evils, then he should be refused Holy Communion.”Cardinal Burke made that perfectly clear to Bishops and those like Mr Kenny.What is worse is that Enda Kenny has imposed ex communication on all Catholic TDs who support the Enda Kenny Abortion Bill.Enda Kenny is an adult who knows the consequences of his actions. Therefore as he knows the consequences of promoting, decriminalising, legislating for and forcing others to support his abortion Bill, he has excluded himself as a candidate for receiving Holy Communion - the precious Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.
