How is that opposing Granholm?

When my Catholic grandfather married my Lutheran grandmother, he was publically excommunicated, his name read out in church in front of his mother and his cousins.

Why don't they do the same to this baby-killer?

And what does it mean that she is a "pro-choice Catholic"?

Isn't that impossible?

"a pro-choice Catholic who personally opposes abortion"

How can you be for something but against it at the same time? I know I'm simplifying the issue, and I've heard this type of claim many times, but it's hogwash. What does it mean to "personally oppose" something? That you wouldn't do it yourself? Then say that. Maybe they're afraid someone might have the cojones to publicly ask why the "personal opposition" if it's an okay thing to do, or "define what you mean by personally oppose". Could they be cornered into saying that they wouldn't "personally" kill their baby but a woman should be ABLE to do so if she wants?

Actually, another bishop in another state has told pro-abortion "Catholic" politicians that they will be refused Communion, so progress is being made on this.

But what Maida is trying to do is actually reverse Granholm's veto of a law meant to prevent partial birth abortion. If the Cardinal is successful in this, it will be a real demonstration of pro-life committment (not only the Cardinal's, but that of Catholics in the pews). And it will save some young lives.

Of course, expect the Cardinal to be attacked for "interfering in politics," something that never seems to happen when a Dem candidate takes over a black church to make an election pitch.
