Nothing has changed. I go to a catholic high school in California and the penalties for students who advocate any sort of abortion or "brag" about having one are severe. At the same time, historically American Catholics apparently have been more liberal in their interpretations of church doctrine. This pushes close to heresy.
They will all burn anyways.
At the same time, if the Vatican were to issue excommunications for John Kerry and his ilk, it would be massive disruption to catholic democrats, if any exist, while strengthening the conservatives. This inaction is damaging.

You would think these politicians were Nazi's they way the bishops cringe at the thought of doing anything to tick them off. The only people most bishops have the courage to stand up to is those Catholics who just want orthodox liturgies, orthodox catechesis and their little boys left unmolested.
