Archbishop says priests must refuse Communion to Catholics who support homosexual sin

From Religion News:

Newark Archbishop John Myers has given his priests strict guidelines on refusing Communion to Catholics who, for example, support gay marriage or whose own marriage is not valid in the eyes of the church.

In the two-page memo, Myers also orders parishes and Catholic institutions not to host people or organizations that disagree with church teachings.

He says Catholics, “especially ministers and others who represent the Church, should not participate in or be present at religious events or events intended to endorse or support those who reject or ignore Church teaching and Canon Law.”

  1. I live in Paramus, NJ and am quite familiar with Archbishop Meyers' comments.All I can say is: What would Jesus do? How would our Lord respond to a man who just spent over a million dollars on his 2 million dollar mansion when his archdiocese is one of the poorest in the nation? Also, the timing of his memo is very interesting; Pope Francis had just left Cuba and was on his way to the United States when Archbishop Meyers issued that memo.
