I had not heard about this until today. Apparently a couple of Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence received communion from the Archbishop of San Francisco and now all hell has broken loose. Conservative catholics in the city are pissed and even Bill O’Reilly is talking smack about San Francisco because of this. It’s gotten to the point that the Archbishop felt that he had to apologize for the incident.

Why apologize!? According to a Jesuit Professor of moral theology at USF that was interviewed for the story, “The general sacramental principle is that you don’t deny the sacrament [of communion] to someone who requests it…the second principle is that you cannot give communion to someone who has been excommunicated.” Screw the conservative Catholics and Bill O’Reilly! The Archbishop should have told everyone to kiss his ass and moved on with his life.

Did anyone else hear about this crazy shit? I think I’m more offended about the apology than anything else. because it proves that the Archbishop is caving to conservative political pressure even though it was in his right to give the sacrament to anyone, including the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.
