This just in from our friends at LifeSiteNews – Amid continuing concern about the Vatican press office’s “manipulation” of the family synod’s message, a priest who has been covering Vatican news for over 15 years had his credentials revoked last week, and was told to leave the premises “immediately.” The revocation came after he had challenged an archbishop following the October 6 press conference over comments claiming that allowing Communion for the divorced and remarried is up for debate.

Archbishop Paul-Andre Durocher made the comments in response to a reporter’s question about whether the matter pertained to Church discipline – which could potentially change – or doctrine, which is fixed.

“To be quite honest, there might be differences of opinion on that,” Durocher said. “Let’s be honest. Is that a question of doctrine or is that a question of discipline? I think that’s probably going to be one of the questions that will be debated in the small groups.” READ FULL REPORT HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: Did you ever think you'd live to see the day when ugly Stalinist tactics would rear their little heads at the heart of the Catholic Church and against faithful priests whose only "crime" is to publicly defend the infallible doctrine of Holy Mother Church? God help us, who are these men and what are they thinking?  Have Catholics not been scandalized enough?
