I just have to say something here.
Catholicism has a very distinct set of rules. They say that if you do "X" then you can not receive communion until you confess.
That is their deal. It is not right or wrong. It is the rule to be a Catholic. Now if someone does not agree with that then they do not have be Catholic.
It is like the people who want to fraternize with enlisted personnel in the Military and have inappropriate romantic relationships. Everyone knows the rules. When someone gets caught and they get run up and disciplined there seems to be a lot of hand wringing.
The fact of the matter is like the military, Catholics know the rules to being Catholics. If they do not like that someone who is in authority in their parish, diocese or whatever says they can not receive the sacrament of communion then they have a choice to make don't they?
