Santorum And The Bishops

May 9 2011 @ 1:03pm

What are the odds that they will consider denying him communion for backing the torture of terror suspects? They have weighed that question with politicians over abortion rights – and yet no presidential candidate I know of has personally approved of an abortion or declared him or herself prepared to carry one out. But with torture, a presidential candidate is essentially saying that he would personally authorize this evil. And so the endorsement of something that is "contrary to respect for the person and for human dignity" is far more direct.

Will the Bishops move? Let's just say I am not holding my breath.
