Killing babies is not an 'optional' Catholic belief. That the Cuomos identify themselves as Catholics and are allowed to receive Communion is a jaw-dropping scandal.

The Cuomo's are agents of the devil. They are asking the Catholic Church to abandon the concept of sin and repentance, and that idea has infected the church precisely because people like the Cuomo's and Kennedy's have been allowed to make such demands, publicly, without fear of reprisal. Nothing has happened to them, not even when they promote laws that sanction abortion on demand, gay marriage, gay adoptions and a whole host of heresies. Not only is there no price to pay, they arrogantly demand the church abandon the faith and embrace their heresies too, and when the church does nothing in response, young people assume the Cuomo's have the moral high-ground, and they too embrace the false gods political correctness and cultural marxism.

A Pharisee has to judge in the strictest way because he is virtuous all the time.

Cuomo isn't Jesus, we know. He's a sinner and hasn't repented. We are sinners too. All except Dobermite.

Rome -- "May God forgive you." That's Cardinal Timothy Dolan's translation of a joke that Pope Francis told the College of Cardinals a day after being elected the 267th pontiff.

Having watched the prayerful mien of some of the cardinals going into the papal conclave that would elect Argentinean Jorge Mario Bergoglio pope, I have reason to believe that God had something to do with Papa Francisco, as the Romans call their bishop.

Others, of course, see it otherwise.
