The Penalty of Ex-Communication

Two of the worst scandals faced by today’s Catholics are Those public figures who pretend to be faithful Catholics but who vigorously promote abortion Catholic institutions that give awards or otherwise lend credibility to notorious champions of abortion This web site is dedicated to the proposition that “Catholic” champions of abominations such as abortion, euthanasia, and infanticide should be admonished by Church authorities to publicly renounce their positions; that the refusal to do so should result in the public ex-communication of the offenders in accord with canon law,  leaving aside the question of whether they had already incurred automatic ex-communication.

In addition, given that abortion is child abuse, we would like to see Church authorities exhibit an analogous degree of “zero tolerance” towards abortion’s champions, who are still actively promoting abortion.
