This isn’t really new because we’ve heard the same uninformed bleating from pro-abortion politicians before, but a Missouri congressman says that Archbishop Burke went too far telling him he couldn’t go to Communion. Actually, Rep. William Clay goes further than most by threatening the Church’s tax exempt status. Once again, if a Church cannot tell its members what is moral and what is immoral, then what can it do? It may as well close it doors and stop wasting people’s times.
And as far as I’m concerned, if it comes down to tax exemption versus preaching the truth, it’s no contest. Give Caesar what he demands, and then continue to condemn the emperor’s immorality.
