"We declare him ... anathema; we judge him damned!" -- If the Catholic Church Had Any Stones Left This Is What You'd See at Sunday Services This Week

"In that Obama has rendered no act of contrition or repentance, and is at the moment, at liberty in the land, we do, here and now, separate him from the precious body and blood of Christ, and from the society of all Christians. We exclude him from our Holy Mother Church and all her sacraments, in heaven, or on Earth. We declare him excommunicate and anathema. We cast him into the outer darkness. We judge him damned with the devil and his fallen angels and all the reprobate, to eternal fire and everlasting pain!"

I'd love to see the bishops of our country castigate the president and his fellow enablers ex cathedra, but excommunicating them is not possible. To formally excommunicate someone means to cut them off from communion with the Church, i.e. from the administration of the Sacraments. (The Sacraments are Baptism, the Eucharist, Penance, Confirmation, Holy Orders, Marriage, and the Anointing of the Sick). These Sacraments (except for Baptism) may only be administered by the Apostolic Church (which means basically the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Churches). Since Obama is not a member of the Apostolic Church, he has never had access to the Sacraments (except for trinitarian Baptism, to which all men have access) and therefore he can't be cut off from them.

Nothing will change in this country until we Christians refuse to play the game any more. Of course, not playing the game means defying the government and taking the heat for doing so. Few among us, myself included, are willing to lose our status, property, wealth, reputation, and freedom -- or our lives -- for the sake of our faith. Until that changes, the forces of evil will continue to win.

Too late I'd say but it would still be a nice gesture. Going all Calvinistic on his ass I'd venture he was lost from the get-go placed on this earth to serve God's strange purpose later to be tossed on the heap with the rest of the imperfect vessels. I mean that in a non-racist way of course.

I am not a Catholic, or even a Christian, but how can a church excommunicate someone who was not in communion with them? Obama is a Muslim, wouldn't the Catholics have to find somebody like the head sheik of Araby to put a fatwa on his butt? And why would they do that just to make the RC, whom they hate as kufirs, happy?

1. Obama's not Catholic. He's never been in communion with us fully. Nothing to excommunicate him from.

2. Excommunication is a medicinal penalty, not a punishment. But he never believed Catholic doctrine or was connected to the Church, so there's no way to wake him up to the danger of his mortal sins by visible separation from the Church.

3. I love you, Gerald, but the Church is a mother, not a mother'. She doesn't do these things to impress or amuse onlookers, but as a doctor of the soul. Nor do we force people to be Catholic who aren't.

4. The sad thing is that there are Catholics out there who should be excommunicated, like Pelosi and Sebelius, and who probably already are automatically excommunicated (latae sententiae).

But since they're too stupid not to glory in it and feel like righteous martyrs, and since they would probably drag along a lot of their stupid friends into schism, there's been no reason to point out what they should know they already are. You can't help people who show no signs of believing that they could ever be less than perfect goddesses among men.

A majority (52%) of American Catholics voted for Zero in 2008, led by Hispanic Catholics (67% for Zero). Catholics make up 25% of the US population. If they as a group wanted to put the hurt on a candidate, they could do damage, but could not pull it off without help. I predict in 2012 Catholics are still going to vote majority for Zero. Why? The like money from big government more than they value their faith, and this is particularly true of the Hispanic Catholic community.

Well, if a personal excommunication of Obama isn't likely, then perhaps the Pope could put the entire United States under a papal interdict. As the American people (many boasting of their Catholic bona fides) have willingly chosen an anti-Christian tyrant to rule them, I'd say they deserve the punishment more than the French people did when Philip II didn't want to live with his wife. The point of it is to raise public pressure on the rulers to amend their ways. It would be interesting to see just how Catholic American Catholics really are if push comes to shove. I suspect a big percentage would prefer to haul out the ol' Gadsden Flag and decide that they really prefer not to have to listen to a "foreigner" tell them what to do. In other words, their Catholicism is a mere decorative coloring.

If the Catholic Church still had priests like this, I would still be Catholic.

Any church that allows Pelosi or Kerry or any Kennedy within its doors worships Satan.

Obama is a Muslim, so excommunication doesn't apply.

Keep your stupid, silly, childish superstitions.

The rest of us clear thinking adults will take care of this world.

Poor Carlito. So close to and yet so far from God. Pray for him. Now and...

Obama may not be Catholic, but Kathleen Sebelius apparently is, and per cfbleachers in PJmedia today, she has been denied communion because of her 'beliefs' and this policy is payback in which Obama is taking the heat for her animus toward the church. Perhaps it's time for the Church to take the next step for her.
