One of the leading advocates of the legalized killing of innocent unborn babies,
One of the leading Senators responsible for preventing an anti-Roe v. Wade Supreme Court,
One of the original I'm-personally-opposed-but... Catholics who have blocked pro-life legislation whenever possible,
will be honored with a Catholic funeral Mass on Saturday.
Can. 1184 §1 Church funeral rites are to be denied to the following, unless they gave some signs of repentancebefore death:
1° notorious apostates, heretics and schismatics;
2° those who for anti-christian motives chose that their bodies be cremated;
3° other manifest sinners to whom a Church funeral could not be granted without public scandal to the faithful.
§2 If any doubt occurs, the local Ordinary is to be consulted and his judgement followed.
