This will cause the normal exploding heads at the Reporter and MSNBC.  No “Progress” for you!

In the Aparecida Document, a joint statement of the bishops of Latin America, Cardinal Bergoglio commented on the worthiness of individuals to receive the Eucharist. The text states in paragraph 436 that, “We should commit ourselves to ‘eucharistic coherence’, that is, we should be conscious that people cannot receive Holy Communion and at the same time act or speak against the commandments, in particular when abortion, euthanasia, and other serious crimes against life and family are facilitated. This responsibility applies particularly to legislators, governors, and health professionals.”[52][53][54]

Of course, for Catholics who know their faith, all this was fore-ordained and obvious.  It turns out the Pope is Catholic.  But for the MSM, the deathless superstition is that the faith is the personal property of the Pope which he could, if he would just get off the dime and do it, completely re-write to reflect the deepest beliefs of the NY Times editorial board,  All Things Considered, and HuffPo.  So we constantly hear the hope that the “next Pope” or the Third Vatican Council will “reform” the Catholic faith so that it’s not so, you know, Catholic.  It’s a superstition that shows no sign of abating and a mindset that shows not the slightest hint of an ability to learn from history or deal with reality.
