non-negotiable

Unlike Last Election Would Indicate, Catholics Are One

In the last presidential election, over 50% of Catholics voted for Obama. In a recent column penned by Russell Shaw (Our Sunday Visitor[OSV]), he proclaimed that "conservative" Catholics don't listen to the words of St. Paul---a major Catholic saint.

More troubling is when Shaw stated the "conservatives" complained that 31 of 150 organizations in the Center for Community Change got grants from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD). In other words, did these 31 organizations promote and/or exercise actions within groups that were involved with abortions and/or same sex marriages? More succinctly, was any monies donated to these 31 organizations who espouse items directly against Catholic teaching? If money is given for a membership in one of these coalitions, it is donating to a very anti-Catholic cause. This author evidently thinks this is OK.

Several things almost 'pop' out at you with his comments. 1) Why does he highlight "conservatives"? Does he have some inner anguish with conservative principles? Conservative Catholics usually are the ones that almost always follow Catholic teachings. Are organizations promoting abortions and same-sex marriages getting any of their funds from CCHD somehow?

Explanation of Excommunication by the Catholic Church

                    

Because 23% of Americans actually claim to be Catholic, it should be made crystal clear as to what excommunication actually is. Some look at excommunication as a thorny punishment from the Catholic Church. It actually is a medicinal penalty that is compulsory to help the sinner repent and turn back to God.

The Church fervently hopes that the former Catholic changes their ways, and is in "communion" with the rest of the Church. Unfortunately, this election showed a true differentiation.

The mind boggling part was that fully 54% of American Catholics during the last presidential election voted for the party who espoused abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research, and same-sex marriage. Cloning in this administration seems a likely probability as can be seen in New Stem Cell Research Bill Could Promote Human Cloning ....

The above is all of the five "non-negotiables" that exist for any Catholic. Any "non-negotiable" is an intrinsic evil every time-that is, belonging to an act that is essential or inherent. No exceptions exist.

Kennedy Had Been Excommunicated Years Ago

The Catholic sitting next to you in Church could be a phony. If they proceed to receive communion they may be calling sacrilege and eternal damnation on their soul. One should know no one is capable of judging what someone's eternal life may be. But with Senator Kennedy and his full Catholic funeral upon his recent death, one has to wonder.

Kennedy's urgent push to pass legislation for abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research, and same sex-marriage demonstrated his utter contempt for four of five "non-negotiables". Those are, in Catholic doctrine and teaching, intrinsic evils in every case. There are no exceptions.
