Archbishop Burke Says No Communion for Pro-abortion Kerry Even If He Becomes President - 2/2/04
http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2004/feb/04020205.html

Archbishop Raymond Burke continues to make waves with his stand regarding pro-abortion "Catholic" politicians. He is quoted in an article in today's online edition of the St Louis Post Dispatch stating that he would refuse John Kerry Holy Communion if he were to appear in the Archbishop's Communion line.

"I would have to admonish him not to present himself for Communion," said Burke. "I might give him a blessing or something," he said.

John Kerry is moving into the front of the race for the Democratic Presidential nomination and is a Catholic who has vociferously defended his pro-abortion stand.

The response from the Kerry Campaign team was unapologetic. Kim Molstre, a Kerry campaign spokeswoman, said Friday, "The archbishop has the right to deny Communion to whoever he wants, but Senator Kerry respectfully disagrees with him on the issue of choice."

6. While participating as a Catholic, communion is probably
important, but Kerry can't allow the church to interfere with his duties as a Senator. The Church should realize we have a separation of powers.

8. I think the Archbishop is posturing. Kerry along with many or even most
Catholics aren't "pro abortion"! Their position, as well as mine, is Government has no business interfearing with any decision women make about their reproduction. I'm certainly NOT "PRO ABORTION"! I personally would never have one, but I don't think MY OPINION should be forced on anyone.

The Archbishop has the right to his own opinion too, but he doesn't have the right to force them on everyone else.
