Terra Firma

Feast of St. Faustina Kowalska
It's still early in the race, but St. Louis archbishop, Raymond Burke has affirmed his stance from the 2004 presidential election that anyone administering Communion is morally obligated to deny it to Catholic politicians who support an abortion-rights position contrary to church teaching.
If the question [of denying Communion] is about a Catholic who is publicly espousing positions contrary to the moral law, and I know that person knows it, yes I would.
In that case, it was John Kerry who brought the question high profile, and this time around, of course, it's Rudy Giuliani:
I can't imagine that as a Catholic he doesn't know that his stance on the protection of human life is wrong. If someone is publicly sinning, they should not approach to receive Holy Communion.
Archbishop Burke is on Relevant Radio this hour.
