"Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a man examine himself, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For any one who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment upon himself."
Bishops Rebuke Catholic Sen. Tim Kaine for Voting for Infanticide: “Appalling” Lack of “Basic Human Decency”
Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) received a harsh rebuke Tuesday from his Bishop Barry C. Knestout of the Diocese of Richmond over his vote against the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act” which would have strengthened legal protections for infants born after a failed abortion attempt. In a joint statement with Arlington Bishop Michael F. Burbidge, Bishop Knestout condemned the Senate’s failure to pass the bill. “It is a matter of common sense and basic human decency to require, as S. 311 would have, that any health care practitioner present when a child is born alive following an abortion give the same degree of care to preserve the life and health of the child as would be given to any other newborn,” they wrote. “That this bill did not pass unanimously – let alone even pass at all – is appalling and beyond comprehension.” “We are dismayed and outraged that Virginia’s U.S. Senators Warner and Kaine voted against this critical lifesaving legislation,“ they emphasized. They urged the Senate to “reconsider its decision as soon as possible.” Source
