update on pro-aborts
Probably you have also read that later in that Mass, Kerry was in the line to which the Apostolic Delegate was giving Communion, and did receive Communion from him. LifeSiteNews.com reported that and surmised that it was unintentional on the part of the Apostolic Delegate.
Does any of this mean that the mind of the universal Church is that mass abortion-facilitating politicians are fine fellows and should be given Communion? No.
A while ago, a commenter professed to be upset that I asked whether then-Bishop Wuerl and Cardinal Mahony were opposite-coast bookends. I should have specified that I was asking that question about the way they deal with pro-abortion politicians. We will see what track record Archbishop Wuerl compiles now in D.C., but very publicly shaking hands right off the bat with the mega pro-abort twin K's, Kennedy and Kerry, was not a great start.
Yes, I know Cardinal Mahony's record with pro-abort politicians is a long one. Let us see, though, here and now in this election year, what he will do and what Abp. Wuerl will do.
