Gay-marriage-rights Catholics should not partake of Holy Communion, said one Detroit professor who also serves as a legal adviser to the Vatican.
Pope Francis broke with Catholic Church tradition and washed and kissed the feet of two young women during the Holy Thursday Mass ritual that has always been confined to men.
Edward Peters , who teaches canon law at a Catholic seminary in Detroit, said on his blog that the Catholic Church's teachings are clear on this point.
But Mr. Peters has pointed out certain politicians in the past — Rep. Nancy Pelosi and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, to name a couple — and said they should not take Communion because of their gay-marriage support.
