ARCHIVES (2012) - Patriarch excommunicates five Supreme Court Justices

WASHINGTON 28 June 2012 (ACNS) - In response to their five to four vote to uphold Obamacare as constitutional, the Patriarch of St. Stephen issued a bull of excommunication today for the five Justices who voted in favor of the legislation. The complete text of the bull is given below:

Lex Christi - The Law of Christ is supreme. It has ultimate and supreme authority over all, whether Christian or not. It is in all cases superior to the laws of secular governments, and the laws of secular governments are only legitimate if they are consistent with the Law of Christ. The Holy Church, by Divine authority, exists to uphold this law for the freedom and salvation of all mankind, for true freedom and salvation can only come through Christ. The Supreme Court of the United States has, in upholding the health care legislation of the Obama Administration, committed an act against the sanctity of life and in favor of intrinsic evil, which includes but is not limited to the facilitation of the murder of unborn children. As they are the supreme secular legal authority of the United States, they bear an awesome responsibility. It was in their power to act in accordance with the overarching moral principles, but they chose not to do so. Therefore, We, acting in Our Sacred Office as Patriarch, do hereby excommunicate John Roberts, Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, reserved to this See. We further declare that all baptized persons in the United States of America who give direct or moral support to the legislation of the Obama Administration today upheld by the Supreme Court shall incur latae sententiae excommunication reserved to this See. Datum Aulae S. Mariae Walsinghamensis apud S. Stefanum, die xxviii mensis Junii A.D. xxii.
