    Bishop to Biden: Don't take communion in Colorado Springs

    The Catholic Diocese of Colorado Springs has thrown down the guantlet to Vice President Joe Biden -- don't come here and expect to partake in Holy Communion.

    It seems Bishop Michael Sheridan, the person in charge of Catholics in Colorado Springs, doesn't approve of Biden's stance on abortion.

    The Bishop, following church doctrine, is opposed to abortion. Biden, meanwhile, has said he doesn't support the practice, but doesn't believe it should be illegal.

    In 2007 Sheridan wrote: "Any Catholic politicians who advocate for abortion, for illicit stem cell research or for any form of euthanasia ipso facto place themselves outside full communion with the Church and so jeopardize their salvation. Any Catholics who vote for candidates who stand for abortion, illicit stem cell research or euthanasia suffer the same fateful consequences. It is for this reason that these Catholics, whether candidates for office or those who would vote for them, may not receive Holy Communion until they have recanted their positions and been reconciled with God and the Church in the Sacrament of Penance."

    Pretty sad that Republicans cheer for the Vatican trying to influence American politics, they used to piss their pants over the thought when Kennedy was running.

    Unfortunately those of you that responded are in favor of Joe's perfidy to the religious faith he claims to follow. Aparently y'all are part-time Christians. Placing politics before faith is exactly what Jesus was against. Didn't he expel the moneylender from the Temple?
    Excommunication would be suitable for this individual. The same goes for Nancy Pelosi.

    That may be the most incredibly screwed up statement I have ever read on this board.
