Harsh! San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone Says No Communion for Unworthy Catholic Politicians

Friday, April 4th, 2014

Apropos of something I don’t know, Archie Cordielone GOES OFF on the topic of whether Catholic politicians* should be allowed to receive Communion if they dissent from Church teachings. Check it:

“Archbishop Cordileone of the Archdiocese of San Francisco speaks with LifeSiteNews.com regarding the worthiness of a Catholic (politician) to receive Holy Communion who goes against Church teaching on life and family issues. Recorded in Sacramento California March 26, 2014″

OK then.

Better Know Your California Special “Red Letter” License Plates – What Does “S3″ Mean? What Does “R” Mean?

When Mayor Ed Lee accepted the job as interim mayor in January, it was understood by the Board of Supervisors that he would not run for a full term. In fact, his promise of not running for a full term was the reason why the Board elevated a reluctant Lee to what was understood to be a caretaker position, to complete Gavin Newsom’s term as mayor.

Since his nomination, Lee has been asked on numerous occasions whether he would run and each time he has remained steadfastly unequivocal: he is a man of his word and will not run.

“I have been unequivocal like I am standing in front of you,” Lee said over a month ago when FCJ asked him if he remains unequivocal about not running. “I do feel some pressure these days and it’s like I am constantly getting those questions… there’s just so many people talking to me and I just have to keep warding them off.”

Today, the San Francisco Chronicle reports a shift in Lee’s response…”

Uh oh.
