Another Reason Politics and Religion Don't Mix

For the record I am a Christian..and I am an American as well.. and it really bothers me that as a Christian we can't make up our own minds on subjects (individually) .. This is a classic example of Hypocrisy .. where is the outrage by the church about the death penalty? And does the Catholic Church have any moral ground to stand on after all of the sexual abuse that has taken place for decades?? Or that fact that some Evangelical leaders seem to always set themselves up for failure... i.e Ted Haggard / or the empty promises of the President to Evangelicals almost 8 years ago for his faith based initiative program that never materialized ..

The Main goal for Christians is to Love one another and to grow closer to God by developing a relationship through him.. it's really simple and somehow we forget it time after time...

Pope warns Catholic politicians who back abortion

ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE (Reuters) - Pope Benedict on Wednesday warned Catholic politicians they risked excommunication from the Church and should not receive communion if they support abortion.

It was the first time that the Pope, speaking to reporters aboard the plane taking him on a trip to Brazil, dealt in depth with a controversial topic that has come up in many countries, including the United States, Mexico, and Italy.

The Pope was asked whether he supported Mexican Church leaders threatening to excommunicate leftist parliamentarians who last month voted to legalize abortion in Mexico City.

"Yes, this excommunication was not an arbitrary one but is allowed by Canon (church) law which says that the killing of an innocent child is incompatible with receiving communion, which is receiving the body of Christ," he said.
