Catholics have seriously screwed up doctrine. I mean, really.


All Christian religions and denominations that practice any form of communion teach that those who are unbelievers and are in sin should not partake of communion.

quote:

For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 1 Corinthians 11:29



In my church there is generally a set a time of individual prayer before communion to allow even believers to "purge" themselves before God.

As a Catholic, she knew damn well that she was ineligible to receive communion. I grew up Catholic but I am nonpracticing. These days when I go to mass (almost always a wedding) I don't accept communion. WHY? Because I know the rules and I haven't confessed in years.



Really? Maybe you should catch up on what's going on in your church.


quote:

Active Catholics in the Greater Washington region said they could not recall another recent occasion when a priest had refused to administer the sacrament to a gay Catholic. Guarnizo’s refusal, they said, seemed at odds with the strong stand against denial of Communion to Catholics enunciated by the archbishop of Washington, Cardinal Donald Wuerl.


Wuerl said he did not believe in denying Communion because it is impossible to know what is in another person’s heart. The issue took off during the 2004 presidential campaign, when some conservative Catholic leaders said that Sen. John F. Kerry (Mass.), the Democratic candidate, should be denied Communion because of his pro-choice views.

I think the priest is pissed off that Maryland has legalized gay marriage and he took it out on the lesbian.

He could have taken her aside before Mass and told her instead, but he still did the right thing.


at her mother's funeral?

I usually chalk up the practices and beliefs in all the various world's religions to "different strokes for different folks" but you guys are just flat out fricked up. You do realize the origins of the Catholic church were political, right? It had nothing to do with God or Jesus. Unless of course you think using God and Jesus to secure political power is right....oh wait.

Your church bases its entire existence on fiction. And I'm not even getting in to the existences or lack of existence in God. I'm talking about your doctrine. Catholic "doctrine" is so hypocritical it's pathetic.

I swear you people are as bad as the nut jobs in the middle east. Maybe he should have thrown acid on her face. Forget about the message of love, forgiveness, and grace, etc. let's cherry-pick a verse (that even you know Jesus didn't really say) and go with that.

Pitiful.

Outrage? No.


I'm just looking for consistency.

Like whether he's also denied communion to people who live together but aren't married, to cheaters, etc...

According to church doctrine you HAVE to gone to confession and asked for forgiveness and forsaken the sinful ways in your life in order to recieve communion.

As stated before, she knew her lifestyle put her in conflict with the church. Maybe that's wrong, maybe not. But either way, she was breaking the rules. Why should the priest have done the same?

Ahem, but the priest did what he did as the church teaches lesbians and homoxexuals are sinners there Toddy, and in the Catholic church she cannot recieve communion in a state of sin. Sorry to break the dogma to you.


My priest taught that homosexual behavior is a sin, not that homosexuals are sinners by definition.

That statement is one of the most ludicrous and insane statements made on this board. If politics were the root of Christianity and all it stands for, then why did Jesus tell Peter "Get behind me Satan" over the subject of declaring his riegn as King of Kings started way back when?

Except that they're really not.

What this priest did is petty and dumb, but let's take a moment to appreciate our first-world problem of "I can't BELIEVE he didn't give her communion!" and not a real problem of "I can't BELIEVE he beheaded that many people!"

I would really like to see where Jesus forced everyone that had Communion with him to confess prior to eating.

I can only assume you are referring to the Protestant denominations.
Pray tell then, where did the Protestants break off from?

DO you not think it's disrespectful that he refused to attend the burial and didn't find another priest to substitute??

I believe that those that came to hear him preach, and were fed loaves and fishes, there was a state of grace granted unto them, as well as the twelve apostles at the Last Supper. Judas made the decision to become a traitor after that fact, as he finally got the message that Jesus was meant to be a sacrifice.

Hm.


Would that also be a sin (not doing unto others as you wish them to do to you), which would require him seeking confession prior to his getting (or giving) communion again?

If he didn't, then would that mean all of the communion he's given out since then is null?
