State Senator Cervantes Denied Communion For Supporting the Grave Sin of Abortion, the Church Responds to His Politicization

New Mexico State Senator Joseph Cervantes claimed on Twitter that he was denied the sacrament of holy communion during a Catholic celebratory mass at the Carmelite Monastery last Friday.

The senator accused Las Cruces Bishop, Peter Baldacchino of discrimination, because of the political office Cervantes holds, not due to his support of abortion, classified as a grave sin by the Catholic church.

Senator Cervantes tweet, “I was denied communion last night by the Catholic bishop here in Las Cruces and based on my political office. My new parish priest has indicated he will do the same after the last was runoff. Please pray for church authorities as Catholicism transitions under Pope Francis.”

The Diocese of Las Cruces responded by stating that it was “unfortunate that a pastoral issue with a member of the local church be publicized.” But Baldacchino withheld the sacrament due to Cervantes publicly supporting a pro-abortion bill in the State Senate.

According to the Catholic News Agency, the disciplinary action was only needed after Cervantes and his bishop had private conversations where the senator was repeatedly asked to refrain from taking communion as long as he intended to vote for Senate Bill 10, which repealed a 1969 state law criminalizing abortions.

Not only did he support the bill, but he also co-sponsored it.

The director of communications for the Diocese of Las Cruces, Christopher Velasquez, said, “It did not happen on the spur of the moment,” speaking of the bishop’s actions.
“In terms of the diocese, we regret the decision of Senator Cervantes to politicize this issue, Bishop Baldacchino did not receive a response from the senator,” Velasquez said of the bishop’s attempts to rebuke him privately. “He [Cervantes] was contacted multiple times prior, letting him know that if he voted for Senate Bill 10, he should not present himself for communion.”

The Catholic church will face increasing pressure to ignore the clear teachings of the Code of Canon law that state those who, “obstinately persevering in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.”

President Biden has claimed to be a devout Catholic while at the same time supporting abortion, the sexual revolution, and other sinful activities. This led to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) to overwhelmingly vote to rebuke the president and other politicians who hold to anti-Christian policies.

The only rebuke outside of ex-communication is the denial of communion and this is creating the current flashpoint.

While the Catholic Church should have taken a much harder line on this and other issues before now, their resolve will be tested by legacy media and democrats who see these issues as political instead of moral.

Protestant Christians are facing a similar challenge. Will Christians take a stand against the open sin of politicians who promote it and endorse it? It is time for the church to be hot or cold, not lukewarm. Church leaders need to take the hard stance on issues that seem political when, in reality, they are the foundation of our faith.

I pray everyday the murder of God’s babies end. We are not a great nation. We kill God’s babies. As a nation, we are turning to sin more and more. We must pray that those controlled by Satan, will see the light and come to JESUS! We must carry out THE GREAT COMMISSION! WE MUST! It is a command by our LORD! It is not a suggestion! I pray America stops electing anti-life politicians! Here in New Mexico, the people keep putting in lawmakers that support abortion. Evil.

Francis Shaeffer said, “Every abortion clinic should have a sign in front of it saying, “Open by the permission of the church.”

“I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.”  President Ronald Reagan

How’s this ‘new America working?

From Dr. Jim Denison:

Tragically, our culture is rejecting God’s intention for sex more than ever before. Adultery is celebrated in popular television shows, music, and movies. Sex before marriage and cohabitation are assumed. Abortion is viewed as birth control. Pornography is at epidemic levels. Not to mention the escalation and promotion of LGBTQ ideology beginning with our children.

This culture-wide normalization of immorality is working:

  • 69 percent of Americans say sex between an unmarried man and woman is morally acceptable, up 16 points since 2002.
  • 42 percent believe sex between teenagers is morally acceptable.
  • 43 percent say pornography is morally acceptable.
  • 19 percent view polygamy as morally acceptable (up from 5 percent in 2006).
  • A record 47 percent of Americans think abortion is morally acceptable.
  • 70 percent support same-sex marriage.

Now let’s ask Dr. Phil’s question: “How’s that working for us?”

Since the sexual revolution began in the 1960s:

  • The youth suicide rate is the highest it has been since the government began collecting such data in 1960.
  • The percentage of children born out of wedlock has escalated from 8 percent in 1962 to 40 percent today. The odds that children in single-parent homes will live in poverty are high.
  • Studies show that as many as half of all divorces involve one party using pornography. Even for those who stay married, pornography sabotages their ability to enjoy normal sexual relations.
  • More than 62 million babies have been killed by abortion since Roe v. Wade. Abortion is the leading cause of death in America, surpassing heart disease, cancer, and all other causes.
