Pope Benedict has finally dropped all pretenses and has threatened pro-choice Catholic politicians with excommunication in the wake of Mexico City’s legalization of abortion.
The Pope was asked whether he supported Mexican Church leaders threatening to excommunicate leftist parliamentarians who last month voted to legalize abortion in Mexico City.
“Yes, this excommunication was not an arbitrary one but is allowed by Canon (church) law which says that the killing of an innocent child is incompatible with receiving communion, which is receiving the body of Christ,” he said.

This comes just days after an op-ed in the Vatican’s newspaper declared disagreeing with the church’s teachings is an act of “terrorism”.
