The Vatican is agreeing with excommunicating alot of people who are members of groups associated with women priests,priests marrying, euthenasia, abortion and the way the Church handled the sex abuse scandal. I do believe in free choice and speech but if you don't believe in the core beliefs of the Church why would you want to change it to suit your needs. Just leave the Church. Murder is wrong no matter how you go about doing it.
It's about time the Vatican did this...wish more and more people would be excommunicated.
