Bishop of Scranton Diocese opposes Hope, Change, Infanticide

The Bishop has asked that the homily be omitted this week and instead, asks his letter addressing the importance of Life be read.  This is causing a stir, though I can't see why, the people bitching know that the church has long called the pro-Life agenda the number one issue.  Here's the broadside,

Being "right" on taxes, education, health care, immigration, and the economy fails to make up for the error of disregarding the value of a human life. Consider this: the finest health and education systems, the fairest immigration laws, and the soundest economy do nothing for the child who never sees the light of day. It is a tragic irony that "pro-choice" candidates have come to support homicide - the gravest injustice a society can tolerate - in the name of "social justice."

Ouch.  But wait, there's more!

While the Church assists the State in the promotion of a just society, its primary concern is to assist men and women in achieving salvation. For this reason, it is incumbent upon bishops to correct Catholics who are in error regarding these matters. Furthermore, public officials who are Catholic and who persist in public support for abortion and other intrinsic evils should not partake in or be admitted to the sacrament of Holy Communion. As I have said before, I will be vigilant on this subject.

If he's gonna make the threat, he'd better mean it.
