Pope John Paul II rebuked Peters, US Bishops & Francis: "The Excommunication... includes those Accomplices [to]... Abortion"

Pope John Paul II rebuked Ed Peters' claim that abortion accomplice Andrew Cuomo can't be excommunicated in Evangelium Vitae, 62:

"The excommunication affects all those who commit this crime... and thus includes those accomplices without whose help the crime would not have been committed... abortion is a most serious and dangerous crime... excommunication is to... foster genuine conversion and repentance."
(The reproach of Christ, Catholic theologian  Ronald Conte Jr., "Contra Ed Peters on Excommunication for Abortion," September 9, 2015)

In fact, Pope John Paul II rebuked not only Peters, but Cardinal Timothy Dolan and all the United States bishops except for Bishop René Gracida and, it appears possibly, about five other US bishops.

Moreover, he rebuked Pope Francis who lauded as "a great Italian" abortionist Emma Bonino who was "directly or indirectly responsible for the deaths of approximately six million Italian babies."(LifeSiteNews, "Notorious abortionist lauded by Pope Francis to speak at church in Italy," July 19, 2017)

Look at what the bishops and Francis do, not to the lip service they give to protecting the unborn babies. And remember what Jesus said about doing:

"Then he will answer, 'In truth I tell you, in so far as you neglected to do this to the least of these, you neglected to do it to me.'"

"'And they will go away to eternal punishment, and the upright to eternal life.'"

Francis, the bishops, everyone reading this and I should tremble in our boots as we read Our Lord's words. Joseph and Mary pray to Jesus that we receive the grace to do what He asks.

Note: Some argue that John Paul II was talking about Latae sententiae excommunication (sentences already passed); if this is the case then the bishops need to tell the accomplices they are already excommunicated and must repent before going to Communion.

In fact, Bishop Thomas Daly is doing something similar. He is denying Communion until the accomplices repent.

Also, if this is the case then the current canon law appears to have some deep problems.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Apples and oranges.

JPII was talking about the latae sententiae excommunication of those closely involved in an abortion.

Peters has been writing about excommunication imposed by a bishop.

The 1983 Code makes such an excommunication impossible in almost any case. Peters is not to blame.
Nonsense 'Fr.' VF.

Of course nobody can just "impose excommunication."

Excommunication occurs of the sinner's own will, regardless of any statement.

A statement form the Bishop is only official authoritative recognition.

What is to be 'imposed' are the natural disciplines that result from the excommunication - such as denial of the sacraments (other than of course Reconciliation on Cuomo's part)!

But what you and the Doc are trying to do is muddy the waters so that you can excuse infanticide by appeals to gnats to try and excuse Dolan from having to do his job and confront Cuomo - which would naturally make it evident to all that Cuomo is excommunicated. After which Dolan will have to deny him Holy COmmunion and then horror of horrors, might not be able to attend any of the upper echelon liberal dinner parties, no matter how much he want's to be so Jesus-like as to "dine with sinners" as they like to say.

Just as they misinterpret scripture and Christ's actions for their convenience, so too will they distort canon law. As you are doing now.

People like you are to blame.

@ Fr. VF: "The 1983 Code makes excommunication impossible".

Of course it does.

Add this to the mountain of evidence. Archbishop Lefebvre was right. An Athanasius of our day.

Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Francis teaches HERESY," now, the question is will he do a Skojec & a Schneider Cop Out

    Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation: "[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic , he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him , or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See." (The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306) Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Pope Francis teaches HERESY: Pope Pius XII condemned the heresy of Francis": Pope Francis on Feb 2 2022, taught, "that in Christ no one can ever truly separate us from those we love because the bond is an existential bond, a strong bond that is in our very nature...who have denied the faith, who are apostates." Pope Pius XII taught the exact opposite when he wrote of those: "who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or b

The Nuremberg Trial-like Excuse which Cardinal Burke has so Staggeringly, so Stereotypically Proffered on the Promised “Formal Correction”

Does Cardinal Burke think Francis is an antipope? On at least five occasions, Cardinal Burke has rejected the magisterial nature of official papal teaching (in one case, pre-emptively dismissing a hypothetical official teaching of the Magisterium): Cardinal Burke has rejected the official teaching of Pope Francis in the new Apostolic Constitution Episcopalis Communio concerning the possibility that a pope can raise the final synodal document to the level of ordinary magisterium, if the pope chooses. (We covered the Episcopalis Communio here .) The whole apostolic constitution on the Synod is problematic. … This idea that either the Pope on his own or the Synod together with the Pope can create some new Magisterium [i.e. a new teaching of the ordinary Magisterium], is simply false. The Synod is a consultative body, to help the Pope to see how best to present the Church’s teaching in time. It’s not able to create ordinary Magisterium. As a canon lawyer, Cardinal Burk
