Bishop Odchimar, contraception & coconuts: Card. O'Malley, abortion & peanuts.

In the Philippines, the bishops will excommunicate the president for pushing contraception.  It's all related.  The sexual immoralities of fornication that is promoted by contraception with divorce or abortion;  sometimes the contraception fails.
The Inquirer reports:  MANILA, Philippines—The president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines on Wednesday reminded President Aquino III that providing contraceptives to poor couples who opt for artificial birth control face excommunication from the church.  Speaking on the Church-run Radio Veritas, Bishop Nereo Odchimar of Tandag, Surigao del Sur, the current CBCP president, said that even Mr. Aquino may be covered by excommunication. Mr. Aquino, a practicing Catholic, has stood by his position that Filipino couples who choose to use artificial contraceptives should be allowed to do so.

Back in the USA, we will never forget how a certain cardinal allowed the late Ted Kennedy to receive Holy Communion despite his marital condition and total support for abortion laws while living.  When the late senator died, the cardinal graced his funeral Mass.

And coconuts are indigenous to the Philippines just as peanuts are here.
