A virtually unknown filmmaker has written a letter to Bishop Howard J. Hubbard of Albany, New York asking him to excommunicate Gov. Andrew Cuomo because of his support of reproductive rights. Unsurprisingly, the Worldnutdaily is promoting that nonsense:
A faithful Catholic who is a human-rights activist and filmmaker has written a letter to the Catholic bishop in Albany, N.Y., asking him to excommunicate Gov. Andrew Cuomo for his support for abortion, which conflicts with church law.
Jason Jones is president of Movie to Movement, which was created to promote a culture of “life, love and beauty” through production of its own films as well as sharing others.
Jones told WND he felt he needed to act because of his lifelong commitment to the culture of life since, as a teen, he lost a daughter to abortion.
The issue of pro-abortion politicians who claim to be Catholic has arisen several times lately, including when both Vice President Joseph Biden and U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., accepted Catholic communion during their visit to the Vatican for the installation of Pope Francis.
Yeah, I’ll take this “culture of life” seriously when he demands that Republican politicians who support the death penalty and oppose universal access to health care, both of which also violate the church’s teachings, be excommunicated. On Planet Wingnuttia, life begins at conception and ends at birth, after which point you are fodder for political diatribes and little else.
