Brooklyn Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio has called on Catholic schools and parishes not to invite state legislators to speak at or attend any events, and to refuse any honors bestowed on them by the governor or any legislator responsible for the bill’s passage.
The sanctions, however, do not include refusing Governor Cuomo or other Catholic politicians who supported the passage of same-sex ‘marriage’ Holy Communion.
Oh so close... but not really what a bishop should do.
What exactly is the message from the bishop here? You're welcome to consume the Body and Blood of Christ (to your own damnation!) but you had better not speak at Catholic schools and parishes? I'm not sure which is worse: Bishop DiMarzio making such a statement or Rome doing absolutely nothing about it.
