This took some courage considering the worthless hierarchy in Ireland:
According to the Adrian Kennedy & Jeremy Dixon talk show on 98Fm, a Dublin priest in the area of Dublin 14/16 told the congregation attending Mass on Sunday morning that if people voted yes in the referendum on the Eighth Amendment then they had no business going up to the alter to receive Holy Communion.
The Church is very clear in its teachings on the crime against the unborn baby where they say “thou shalt not kill”.
Go here to read the rest. Catholicism and courage are a potent combination. Since Vatican II the Church has been sorely lacking in both.
