Biden denied communion over abortion rights

Tell me again that religion isn't evil?


(CNN)Former Vice President Joe Biden was denied communion Sunday at a Catholic church in South Carolina over his support for abortion rights.

Father Robert Morey, the pastor at Saint Anthony Catholic Church in Florence, told the Florence Morning News that he had denied Biden communion because "any public figure who advocates for abortion places himself or herself outside of Church teaching."

If you don't like abortions, don't get one. But don't tell me (or my family) what they can do.

Question about G-7 summit at Doral

So Trump's corruption is just in-your-face now, not even trying to hide it ...

Trump has awarded next year’s G-7 summit of world leaders to his Miami-area resort, the White House said

The US has laws banning giving bribes. And before we turned into a 3rd-world dictatorship, they were actually enforced (at least when abuses were discovered).

My question: how many of the other G-7 countries would be prohibited by their own laws from attending the summit, given that they would be publicly giving money directly to Trump?
