On Monday, the Most Rev. Raymond Burke, an outgoing bishop in La Crosse, Wis., went further than Hughes, saying politicians who support abortion or birth control should be barred from Communion, a central aspect of Catholic spiritual life...

...Maestri did clarify that Hughes' statement calls for the voluntary withdrawal of opposing politicians from the Communion rail and does not mean priests should refuse to serve them.

Let's hope this sputtering start turns quickly into a deluge. Its past time for this.
