Clearly Catholics and evangelicals don't agree on such matters :-) Catholics believe the Catholic church is the mediator of the grace of God, and so that it can make valid pronouncements like this when it feels so moved; whereas evangelicals believe that Christ ministers grace directly to the people who believe in Him and that earthly church discipline was never intended by God to extend to the right or authority to make such pronouncements. You pays your money and you takes your choice.
