The issue over openly pro-abortion rights politicians who are Catholic and whether they should receive Communion has come down to two basic camps: Yes they should, no they shouldn't.
For the most part, the 'Yes they should' camp swings left of center, and often advocates for a host of modern, post-modern, post-Christian agendas and values. On the other hand, the 'No they shouldn't' camp tends toward conservative, traditional, and openly critical of the Church's attempts to fashion the Faith in the likeness of our post-modern society.
I would never say everyone falls exclusively into those two camps. Most that I've read and heard, however, can be placed into those categories with little effort. So I was pleasantly surprised to see John C. Wright step into the fray.
Mr. Wright takes a different approach. Ultimately he echoes the 'Yes they should' camp by suggesting it's not our business what goes on between God and a politician who flouts the Church's teachings. But - and this is the departure from that camp - she absolutely should repent and stop what she or he is doing. The politician in question should be made aware of the grievous sin being committed and the eternal consequences that await those who mock God. .
Having been informed and pastorally admonished, if the politician continues to flaunt the Gospel yet ignore biblical warnings about unworthy communion, then so be it. That is between them and the Almighty and their eternal destiny.
