Pro-Abortion Congressman John Dingell Gets Catholic Funeral

In an email to LifeSiteNews, Fr. Brian Harrison disagreed with Kennedy having a Catholic funeral, saying, “It was a Mass I regard as a scandal comparable to, if not worse than, the scandal given several months ago when the nation’s most prestigious ‘Catholic’ university bestowed an honorary doctorate upon Barack Hussein Obama, the most pro-abortion and ‘pro-gay’ president in U.S. history.”The Catholic Code of Canon Law actually forbids funerals for public sinners. Canon 1184 states, “Unless they gave some signs of repentance before death, the following must be deprived of ecclesiastical funerals: notorious apostates, heretics and schismatics; other manifest sinners who cannot be granted ecclesiastical funerals without public scandal of the faithful.”
