We always knew that Liberalism is a religion or cult, but now it turns out it's an aggressively imperialistic one as well. Following the US Catholic bishops vote on abortion supporters who claim to be Catholic ...
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops voted Friday to create draft guidelines on the meaning of Communion that could eventually bar people who express support for abortion from receiving the Eucharist.
prominent Dems--including some who don't even claim to be believers-- are spinning out of control with claims to dictate who can receive the Eucharist. My guess is that among fair minded Americans of any faith, or no faith at all, this will simply add to the growing view of Dems as radical and intolerant. One more indication that Dems are at war with all things normal. Here's what it comes down to:

This is the crux of their anger. The Catholic Church is the latest target. Men are men. Women are women. God is God, we are not, and babies are innocent and deserve protection. Nothing changes any of this, not your anger or your tweets.
If the bishops play this right--that's a huge if!--they could win big. Recent polling suggests that three quarters of Catholics who actually practice some form of their faith--as in, attend a church--support the bishops on this (polling details here). Presumably those are also the people who contribute financially, rather than the people who simply "identify as." The Catholic Church in America has generated some considerable good will over the past year by keeping their schools open, operating, and safe during the Covid Panic. If the bishops double down on that by giving the appearance of believing in something and being willing to stand up for their beliefs, they might be pleasantly surprised at the support they receive from people of good will generally. Donald Trump had that much figured out so, who knows, maybe even bishops can learn from him.
