Can the Distinct Attorney still receive Holy Communion?
PLUS: Troll War Litigation Update
The Roman Catholic archbishop of San Francisco ordered priests in the archdiocese to deny House Speaker Nancy Pelosi the sacrament of Holy Communion because the California Democrat supports abortion rights. Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone notified Pelosi last Thursday that because she supports legal abortion, she is not to present herself for Holy Communion. Should she do so, Pelosi is not to be admitted. The Archbishop further said: “A Catholic legislator who supports procured abortion, after knowing the teaching of the Church, commits a manifestly grave sin which is a cause of most serious scandal to others.”
The Archbishop’s decision is already sending shockwaves through political circles, as Political Hacks who support Baby Murder and who also claim to be Roman Catholics are in a position squarely inconsistent with the application of Church Canon Law. The Distinct Attorney is one such Political Hack.
Church Teaching and Canon Law
Because the Catholic Church opposes abortion as a matter of doctrine, some Catholic bishops have refused or threatened to refuse Holy Communion or declare ex-communication upon Catholic politicians who support abortion. In some cases, officials have stated that ministers should refuse Holy Communion to such politicians per canon 915 of the 1983 Code of Canon Law.
Under canon 915, anyone aware of having committed a grave sin is obliged to refrain from receiving Holy Communion without first obtaining absolution in the sacrament of Reconciliation. Canon 915 permits the denial of Holy Communion to certain classes of people and obliges them to deny it.
Canon 915 is immediately followed by canon 916, which concerns the minister of the Eucharist (priest or bishop) who celebrates a Mass and the recipient of Holy Communion: “A person who is conscious of grave sin is not to celebrate Mass or receive the body of the Lord without previous sacramental confession unless there is a grave reason and there is no opportunity to confess; in this case, the person is to remember the obligation to make an act of perfect contrition which includes the resolution of confessing as soon as possible.”
Last year by a vote of 222-8, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops overwhelmingly passed new guidance that empowers individual priests to deny Communion to pro-abortion rights politicians should they encounter them. “It is the special responsibility of the diocesan bishop to work to remedy situations that involve public actions at variance with the visible communion of the Church and the moral law,” the document said.
The Distinct Attorney is Pro-Baby Murder
In the 2015 debate leading up to the election to his current office, the Distinct Attorney publicly stated that he was “Pro-Choice.” The Distinct Attorney public supports Baby Murder, a grievous sin in direct contravention of established Church doctrine. The Distinct Attorney has not publicly recanted or clarified these views.
The Distinct Attorney is also a 2013 “Hall of Fame” inductee at his Catholic high school alma mater. How on God’s green earth is a Baby Murderer an example for formative young men?
It remains to be seen if the Distinct Attorney will present himself for Holy Communion. As the perpetrator of manifestly grave sin, the Distinct Attorney is obligated not to receive Holy Communion. But as a Political Hack, he may see nothing wrong with Baby Murder. The real test will be if the Distinct Attorney and his elected official wife present themselves for Holy Communion. What will the Priests and the Archbishop do with these Nancy Pelosi-type Political Hacks and grievous sinners?
TROLL WAR UPDATE: Filed Court Documents
Our hero, Luthmann, filed court documents with the Criminal Term of the Feudal Court on the Isle of Staten, and boy are they explosive. Here are some of the highlights:
Luthmann Names Names
The Feudal Court Judge’s Predicament
Luthmann Wants a Hearing; Asks for Subpoenas
The C-Line State Chair is Under FBI Investigation?
Hypocrites and Hacks?
The Special Schmuck Knowingly Submits False Evidence?
The Deadbeat City Councilwoman?
Is there more? Of course, there is more. Luthmann is armed with many weapons in the Great Troll War.
For those following, the Feudal Courts showdown is scheduled for June 8, 2022. Our hero experienced a death in the family earlier today and has major surgery planned for June 7, 2022, so it is unlikely that there will be a hearing that day. But you never know what “political contracts” and “back-room deals” happen in the Feudal Courts. Luthmann will try to dispose of the first Special Schmuck if Luthmann can get a fair shake.
But there will be many more Enemies to come. What new Enemies will show their faces in the Feudal Court and elsewhere? Which members of the Ruling Elite should be worried? What other persons may become collateral damage in this story? And what magical weapons does Luthmann have to slay his Enemies?
Stay tuned. Much more to come.
