Ugh

The Roman Catholic bishop of Springfield on Thursday banned leaders of the Illinois General Assembly from receiving Holy Communion at local churches because of their involvement in abortion legislation approved last week.

Bishop Thomas John Paprocki took the action against House Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton in a decree based on Catholic canon stating that those "who obstinately persist in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to Holy Communion."

Additionally, Paprocki barred other Catholic legislators who voted for statutory protection for abortion rights in Illinois. The measure was Democrats' response to steep restrictions on abortion adopted in at least six Republican-controlled states in an effort to get the contentious issue, legalized by the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, back before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker, who is Jewish, has promised to sign the legislation.

If I was a legislator I'd tell the good Bishop he can suck it.  I am so goddamn glad I gave the Roman church the ol heave ho back in 2012.
