“But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming for Baptism, he said to them “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bear fruit that befits repentance, and do not presume to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father’; for I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham. Even now the axe is laid to the root of the trees; every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire”
Can. 915 Those upon whom the penalty of excommunication or interdict has been imposed or declared, and others who obstinately persist in manifest grave sin, are not to be admitted to holy communion.
Code of Cannon Law, Cannon 915.
Pelosi: “First of all, I am going to stick with my fellow Catholics in supporting the administration on this. I think it was a very courageous decision that they made, and I support it.”
Excommunication. She said it herself, and by their own words, Nancy Pelosi and Kathleen Sebelius excommunicated themselves, and as such, are in grave sin and have disqualified themselves from participating in receiving Holy Communion. It’s not even an issue of the Bishops doing their jobs on this one; it’s simply a matter of complying with the wishes of both fallen away Catholics Pelosi and Sebelius. Now if the bishops only have the intestinal fortitude of one of the greatest Prophets who ever walked the earth, this charade would end before it begins.
John the Baptist was described by Jesus himself as being the ‘greatest man ever born’ of a woman, and it was this last Old Testament prophet who ushered in the messianic age with great authority. John garnered a large number of followers and preached with such authority that even the Jewish religious leaders inquired as to whether John was the prophesied Messiah. John’s preaching was pure truth, and cut like the sword of truth does; straight and true. There was no equivocation, no apologies, no taking prisoners and NO PLACATING THE ENEMY anywhere or in any place in either word or deed. John went directly to the palace (White House) and condemned the King’s (president’s) behavior and called on the king (president) to repent. John continued until he was imprisoned and executed by the king, due to the king’s insistence that he live his life in the ways as he saw fit (Obama, Pelosi, and Sebelius).
The Bishops know this in the depths of their hearts and the Bishops are crystal clear on what they need to do in this matter. So are the faithful who truly hold the Bible as the inerrant Word of God. And the faithful are watching the Bishops VERY CAREFULLY. If the Bishops do not carry through on their MANDATE TO PREACH AND PROTECT THE GOSPEL AND UNVARNISHED TRUTH, THEY HAVE SET THIS COUNTRY ON THE PATH TO HELL. There is no other way to put this, and no other outcome will suffice. If the Bishops choose to placate the enemy and sell the Church down the road, they will bring judgment upon themselves and will themselves experience personal persecution to levels they cannot even begin to imagine.
John the Baptist WOULDN’T BE CAUGHT DEAD giving the invocation at the democratic convention. Quite to the contrary, John the Baptist would be outside the convention center preaching repentance and giving the real and harsh consequences of policies that murder the most innocent of society. John the Baptist also would not wait until the ‘last two weeks before the election’ to preach his message. No, John the Baptist would PHYSICALLY BE PRESENT at the seat of power and would engage the lead perpetrator (Obama) face to face. No equivocation, no apologies, no taking prisoners and no placating the enemy.
The Bishops must be willing to imitate John the Baptist. And I will give the Bishops my word as a Catholic, that I will be willing to stand with them in any situation, anywhere in this country and would be willing to be arrested WITH THEM, if they stand against this rogue government, but I want to be clear I WILL NOT STAND IN THEIR STEAD. I am willing to risk all I have to defend this line, but the Bishops have to be willing to go to jail with me as a witness against this evil regime. I know of multitudes of people who think and feel as I do, but they must speak for themselves on this matter.
This is the line in the sand. This is war, declared by the rogue Obama regime and implemented by fallen away 'Catholics' who appear to be proud to be "sticking it to the man" (hierarchy). This is the future of our church. Since the Bishops have not stood up for the church in the last forty years, they are not well versed in what civil disobedience looks like. Either way, they will learn this lesson soon, and will learn it well.
