Lightening,Imikahail (many thanks for your reply on the end of Satan's access to heaven) and Cephas,thank you for all your insights in the thread "Did Adam really know what death is?". For some reason,the thread is in the invisible mode. I can only access it by clicking on my name to see my last posting.
New York state voted 'aye' on gay marriage. But,the issue caused a rift between the Roman Archbishop and the governor of NY who happens to be a Catholic.The Archbishop of NY and his allies from the Vatican are contemplating of denying the governor of NY from receiving holy communion to punish him for his support of marriage equality and misleading the faithful. Never minding the hypocrisy that is rampant in the Catholic church, church and state in the US are officially kept as separate entities.
However,my question is how would the COC or HG Bishop David or other general US bishops react, if the governor happened to be a Copt who would just follow his political party's line and policy (rather than his own) and supports an issue that is religiously offensive and serious sin in the sight of God? Would they be facing some sort of canonical consequences?
