My problem with this, is the apparent hypocrisy that is taking place here. Nancy and 47 of her like-minded friends pressuring the Bishop not to withhold the sacraments... Isn't this the "State" butting into the "Church's" affairs? It is completely within the Church's right to withhold the sacraments to anyone the Church leaders deem unworthy.
It is the Pope's responsibility to hold the Church to God's standards, laid out in the Bible, not to society's standards. And definitely not those of the 48 liberals who pressured the Bishop.
