Looks kinda like the Bishop Burke Flu is catching among the RC Ordinaries.

This is a nice move on Maida's part, without going quite to the position that Burke took. Of course, that's always in the quiver...

If you stop to think about this, the campaign is very well-organized and strategically elegant.

Daschle's Bishop tells Daschle to stop calling himself "Catholic" in campaign lit.

Burke explicitly denies Communion to active pro-abort legislators.

Maida goes with initiative referendum to over-ride a serious threat to human life.

All spaced out in time with PLENTY of time for the actions to 'sink in' ...

Methinks there's more to come, like open 'excommunication' letters.

TORQUEMADA LIVES!!!! LONG LIVE TORQUEMADA!!!!

You skipped Archbishop Chaput of Denver basically telling all pro-aborts in the US that they're evil and going to hell and Catholics cannot vote for pro-aborts or they'll go to hell too. Okay, so that's a slight paraphrase . . . but he did make remarks in that direction.

Also Bishop Wiegand in Sacramento ordering former California Governor Gray Davis NOT to receive the Eucharist in the Sacramento Diocese.

And Bishop Doran in Rockford ordering that no pro-abort speakers be allowed to speak on Catholic property in this diocese.

Catholicism is breaking out all over!
