A New Mexico state senator said he was denied receiving Holy Communion at his Catholic church due to his support for a pro-abortion bill.
"I was denied communion last night by the Catholic bishop here in Las Cruces and based on my political office. My new parish priest has indicated he will do the same after the last was run off. Please pray for church authorities as Catholicism transitions under Pope Francis," Las Cruces state Sen. Joe Cervantes tweeted on Saturday.
Hint to the peanut gallery: You don't make the rules for a religious organization, nor its sacraments.
The rules just are. You either subscribe to them or not. Said rules may include strictures on your conduct, both public and private.
You do not have to agree but no matter who you are you have no right, no authority and no capacity to mandate that a given religious path follow your expectations and demands.
Religions are not democracies. You choose what you follow based on its strictures aligning with your personal beliefs, not the other way around. If you disagree in a significant manner, to the point that the "rules" make compliance impossible in your public or private life then go find a different one.
That's how it works and that's the beginning and end of it.
Yes, Biden and Harris should also be denied Communion.
Go find a different faith if you cannot publicly live to the constraints of the one you currently attend.
