Catholic Professor: No Communion for NY Gov. Cuomo

Wednesday, 23 Feb 2011 12:29 PM


ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A conservative professor in Detroit who says he has consulted for the Vatican's high court says New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo shouldn't get Holy Communion because he lives with his girlfriend, Food Network star Sandra Lee.

But Catholic bishops and priests, disagree, citing church law. They have allowed the Catholic Democrat to receive Communion for years, including at Christmas this year and at a Mass marking his inauguration.

Cuomo, who is divorced and supports abortion rights, won't comment. He is the son of former Gov. Mario Cuomo, who angered the church more than 25 years ago with his support of abortion rights.

Catholic bishops in New York cite church law that allows them to make the decision. They say Professor Edward Peters of Detroit speaks for himself.
