Kerry was scheduled to be in St. Louis last Sunday, and told TIME, "I certainly intend to take Communion and continue to go to Mass as a Catholic."

Kerry and every other pro-abortion Catholic politician must be excommunicated. A Kerry presidency will be horribly scandalous. He will represent a terrible model for Catholics. Bishop O'Malley should have excommunicated Kerry and Kennedy as soon as he became bishop. Excommunication now can be played as a "political" move. But better late than never.

I'd bet that if Kennedy and Kerry were told by the church to vote pro-life or be excommunicated, both of them would change their religion before they'd change their votes. It just goes to show that, to them, being a politician IS their religion.

I agree. This hate the sin love the sinner philosophy can only go so far. Eventually you have to conclude that sinner is beyond redemption and is a danger to the congregation. Then you must sever the infection from the body of the Church.

It is then up to the sinner to repent and seek reunion with the Church.
