Catholic Bishop: Gov. Cuomo is “Not in Communion With the Catholic Church,” He’s “Ex-Communioned” NATIONAL MICAIAH BILGER APR 20, 2020 | 5:33PM WASHINGTON, DC New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s name has been in the news a lot lately because of his efforts to save lives in one of the areas hardest hit by the coronavirus crisis. But a little more than a year ago, the Catholic politician got a lot of press for a very different reason. He signed radical pro-abortion law allowing unborn babies to be aborted for almost any reason up to birth in New York. Then, he celebrated. CNS News reports Catholic Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas said Cuomo is not in communion with the church because of his abortion activism, and more Catholic leaders should make that clear. “Andrew Cuomo makes it clear that he doesn’t believe Catholic teaching and therefore he’s ex-communioned. He’s out of communion,” Strickland said, referring to the governor’s record on abortion. “I think to make it clear, and thankfully some of the bishops in other places have taken steps to basically say that, that a politician or anyone who says, ‘I don’t agree with the Catholic Church on basic critical issues,’ they’re choosing to be out of communion,” the bishop continued.
