VanHammersly Posted June 15, 2021 Share Posted June 15, 2021 https://www.foxnews.com/us/bishops-communion-ban-biden-politicians US bishops to discuss Communion ban for Biden, left-wing politicians with 'antithetical' views So, the Catholic Church has refused politicians from receiving communion plenty of times over the years. They famously refused John Kerry in '04 and Biden has been denied in some churches (though he isn't denied it in DC, where he attends as President). But lately, Republicans have decided to rewrite the meaning of the 1st Amendment to include private entities (Facebook, Twitter, etc.), holding them accountable for "1st Amendment violations" in the same standard as the government, even going so far as Ron DeSantis signing a law that fines social media companies if they deactivate the account of a politician that violates their terms of service. If that's the case, given the tax-exempt status of the Catholic Church, should they be held to similar standards to allow the free exercise of religion?
