The New York Times > Democrats Criticize Denial of Communion by Bishops

Posted by David Leslie on May 20, 2004

The key point is noted below.. If your going to deny communion to pro choice supporters within the Church, then you need to deny pro death penalty.
The New York Times > Washington > Democrats Criticize Denial of Communion by Bishops:

“Mr. Hudson said he did not believe it would provoke anti-Catholicism as much as retaliation against other Catholic politicians, many of them Republicans, who are out of step with the church on the death penalty, the Iraq war or fighting poverty.

“What I fear is an internal battle using excommunication as a weapon, something like, ‘If you are going to excommunicate our guys, we’re going to excommunicate your guys,’ ” he said. “
