"A task force set up the U.S. bishops' conference will discuss the reception of sacraments by Catholics whose political advocacy directly contradicts Church teaching.
Bishop Wilton Gregory, president of the episcopal conference, announced the task force in the wake of a Vatican press conference last week in which Cardinal Francis Arinze said that politicians who support abortion must not go to Communion. He also said that priests must deny such politicians the sacrament."
PADRE POINT: Dear US BISHOPS, WE WILL BACK ANY ACTION YOU TAKE AGAINST PRO ABORTION POLITICIANS! Please act swiftly and courageously. Our Church, our nation and most of all, EVERY VICTIM of ABORTION NEEDS YOUR LEADERSHIP! We are praying for you all.
