OBVIOUSLY you have never had my famous bacon wrapped dates, stuffed with gorgonzola cheese, sprinkled with a bit of brown sugar before baking. I bring those to every party and now they expect it and have begun to demand it.

What a bunch of hellions here. Bitching about the Church denying an abomination Communion!

Good for this Bishop! Bravo! We need more like him and then maybe we could get the homosexuals that infiltrated the Church out and the child rape would stop!

They call it "defecting" when you leave the church, I considered the contract of confirmation fraud as they espoused that the church was about love and forgiveness. Instead the catholic church is full hate, bigotry, lies and greed.
There's much to be said for being a religious defective.

Wow, those Catholics think of everything when planning how to defend their child-molesting priests, don't they?

In the new Code of Canon Law, the circumstances under which a presbyter (priest) may Confirm a candidate are extremely circumscribed. Mere inconvenience to the bishop isn't one of them.
There are a couple of instances where such can occur:
- where a baptized candidate is in imminent danger of death
- at the baptism of a fully prepared adult convert from a christian sect whose baptism is recognized by the RCC
These are to be considered SINGLE cases, and are not the prerogative of just any presbyter, but rather to one specially appointed for the purpose.
In circumstances related to inability of the bishop to administer the sacrament, it is the duty of the bishop to arrange for another bishop to fulfill the responsibility.
http://www.vatican.va/archive/ENG1104/__P32.H...
It is important to understand that in the RCC system priests do not stand in apostolic succession from the apostles, and so do not by virtue of their partial ordination possess the charism of calling down the Gifts of the Holy Spirit upon anyone.
This is all RCC metaphysical theology.
I am so glad to be shut of it.
lol
Apparently the local priests in rural Minnesota never got that message, because I've never seen the local bishop at ANY confirmations; not even for my neice who was just had hers last year. In fact when I asked my parents about it- they're still practicing catholics- they said they've never seen the bishop in their entire lives.

I was not confirmed even though I went through all of the classes. It seems the Bishop had something more pressing, like a golf game and left a Church full of young people and their families waiting to be confirmed. This was back in the early 70's, things may have changed since then. I left the Catholic Church when I was 18.

What the hell is wrong with you?

:)

The RCC has taken a severely fundamentalist turn in the past few decades; none of the current attitudes of the RCC would have been allowed under vatican 2. I was raised catholic; being born in the 1950's, I have seen a huge sea change in the way the RCC treats people and social issues. There is no longer any allowance for debate.

Franco? Hitler was a catholic and they didn't even excommunicate HIM.

Isn't it funny that the Catholic Church is so interested in doing this when it did not bother to excommunicate Franco? Even under John Paul XXIII?
So if Franco the murderer could be treated as a good Catholic, someone who believes differently than the Church could not. It proves they consider a difference of opinion a worse sin than murder.

It first appeared as a concept around the time of the Donatists, but didn't find fuller expression and conceptual development until christendom became a government caesaropapism, and there was a need to keep the social control structures intact.

There's a problem with this story.
A priest cannot administer the sacrament of Confirmation.
Apart from that, the excommunications have begun.
Welcome, folks, to THESE middle ages.
Actually, priests can administer the Sacrament of Confirmation, though usually a bishop does it.
