|Kasper: "You can't refuse me Communion! Don't you know who I am?!"|
In a survey of 302 Catholics, a whopping 87 percent of respondents voted that Cardinal Kasper should not be admitted to Holy Communion compared to a small minority, 13 percent, who said he should.
I think there's little doubt that this sample is pretty much representative of the entire Catholic world, since clearly even The Tablet's hard-working team could not muster up the enthusiasm to get their friends to take the poll from different computers. The question is, will Rome act?
With shock results like this we have to ask: Is Kasper for the axe? Overnight our team of analysts will be giving you the reaction to news of Kasper's sudden fall from grace. This is what 87% of the Catholic World looks like...
If you extrapolate our survey to across the Catholic world, then the following image gives you an approximate understanding of just how large the margin against Cardinal Kasper receiving Holy Communion was to those who believed the Lord of Hosts (who is truly present in the Blessed Host) should be dispensed to the Prince of the Church. I think you'll agree that the survey's results are staggering and are sure to be taken into consideration at the Synod.
