So, people who work on Saturday shouldn’t get communion?

I think it's a dangerous practice by the Catholic church if we see some politicians denied and others receive it.  based more on political affiliation than alleged transgressions.

Numbers 15;32

One day while the people of Israel were in the wilderness, they discovered a man gathering wood on the Sabbath day. The  people who found him doing this took him before Moses, Aaron, and the rest of the community. They held him in custody because they did not know what to do with him.  Then the LORD said to Moses, “The man must be put to death! The whole community must stone him outside the camp.” So the whole community took the man outside the camp and stoned him to death, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.
 

Oh my, working on the Sabbath sounds pretty serious. Maybe the priest who refused Pelosi communion should refuse communion not only to anyone who worked on the Sabbath, but to any employer employing people to work on the Sabbath.

I don't understand why you're quoting the bible as if it is the only source of Divine Revelation the Catholic Church believes in. The Catholic Church is not "sola scriptura", never has been.....

 

If Nancy doesn't like the rules of the Catholic Church, she's free to join one of the other 45,000 denominations that have sprang up since the (protestant) reformation.........simple as that.

What are the rules of the Catholic Church, punish politicians who support abortion, but not punish politicians who support working on the Sabbath?

Isnt it a sin in the Catholic Church to work on the Sabbath?

No . it is not.

 

All the questions you have about the Catholic church are in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which is

readily available on line.  Maybe you should read it:why:

If the Catholic Church was serious, it would ban communion of anyone who worked on the Sabbath.

I'm guessing you've never been graded on a curve before.

The Church turned a blind eye to a hell of a lot worse over the years. 

So, you should applaud when they finally get with the program.

Maybe the church that just paid 174 million to settle claims with its insurers for child sex abuse victims, shouldn’t be playing politics with The Sacrament of Holy Communion.

Past mistakes aren't a logical reason to ignore current transgressions.

Lol, ignore the child abuse scandals and that little issue during WWII, and applaud for a political stunt? No thanks.

Abortion is murder Frank, she’s lucky not to be excommunicated. But she obviously is a piss poor Catholic

Nobody is ignoring anything. Although some of your claims are contentious, either way, previous mistakes in the past just don't justify ignoring grievous conduct of public officials today.

 

It's only a political stunt if you don't see Pelosi's conduct as grievous. By the rules of the Catholic Church, there's no question about it.
