Ad Assails D.C. Cardinal for Stance on Communion

Washington Post

"A Roman Catholic antiabortion group launched an advertising campaign against Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick of Washington yesterday, attacking him for saying he is not comfortable denying Communion to Sen. John F. Kerry (Mass.) and other Catholic members of Congress who support abortion rights."

But Cardinal McCarrick doesn't understand. If you let pro-abortion types take Communion, you might have to let all bad Catholics take Communion. For the first time, you might see people who are tardy on Confession get in on the action. You might even - and this is just a guess - see people who have had pre-martial sex come forward. Obviously, the Church can't let that happen. You've got to draw the line somewhere. Why not do it in the most politically-motivated, hypocritical way possible?
