"fully breaking the ties with a body in which holocaust deniers and antisemites are members".

They should quit accepting US dollars than... We are a nation with a lot of folks who express crack-pot opinions...

But why is it so difficult to accept that we don't excommunicate for crackpot opinions (that are not heresy at least) and we don't "canonise" crackpot opinions when we rehabilitate.

You could be a lifelong Catholic in good standing, and die a holy death all the while proclaiming the earth to be square, and Newton's Law of Gravity to be "pedantic lies".

This is an an expedience.
