Regarding Kerry, Is He or Is He Not Excommunicated?
Father Augustine Di Noia, third-ranking official in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican's doctrinal office, told Reuters that Balestrieri had hoodwinked the Church by misrepresenting himself.
"I thought I was advising a student who was working on a project. I referred him to a reliable theologian on the matter. I was acting in my capacity as a theologian trying to be helpful to a young person," he told Reuters.
So you gave the question to a reliable theologian on the matter. The answer that was given applies to just Catholics that are not US Senators? Hmmmmm!
