    Unbelievable but true: members of the American RCC with "conservative" ideas about the faith have begun "outting" clergy and ordinary parishoners whose conduct they feel is "not Catholic enough". One target are employees of Catholic social service organizations who have made contributions to political candidates who are pro-choice. (Evidentially, all Catholics should be single-issue voters.)

    In what may be the most bizzare-o aspect of this story, parishoners in Boston are dissecting the work of an advisor to the Archbishop, looking for evidence of "Marxist influences".

    I wonder what version of Jesus' teachings these people have, that they feel so entitled to hunt and destroy the lives of fellow Catholics they deem to be "not Catholic enough"? There are days I think the whole nation has gone more than slighty mad.....this is one of them.

    Discuss.

    No Catholic should vote for a pro-choice candidate. It ain't rocket science.

    It's never a good idea to mix politics and religion. Usually results in something like the Crusades or the Taliban.

    IMO, "even" a Catholic should have complete privacy as to who they vote for. The choice could be based on another issue, or they could be a pro-choice Catholic. It is between them and their conscience....not them, their conscience and all of Planet Earth via youtube.

    WTF do these nosey parkers think they are, to condemn someone else's piety?

    How sick is it that people make it their mission to fight for the RIGHT of women to kill their own children, and then call it, PRO-CHOICE... gives me the willies.

    Catholics can not be Catholic and pro-choice. It is against our religion.

    A Catholic is not excommunicated merely because his views diverge from the Pope's. Even a Catholic woman who has an abortion is not excommunicated, provided the RCC even knows about it....that is what the Sacrament of Confession is for. For some people, the moral absurdity of the Pope's anti-abortion, anti-contraception and anti-sex POV is overwhelming, yet they adhere to their faith as best they can.

    Who appointed you Catholic-tester for all of Planet Earth? What happened to "judge not, lest ye be judged"?

    You should not "have" to hate anyone to belong to the RCC.
