"It would be an unsustainable anomaly if Catholics were permitted to serve in the armed forces of a country that claims the right to wage preemptive war, even in the face of passionate denunciations by the pope, while being barred by their religion from serving in Congress, where they could vote against such wars. But that is the logic of Bishop Burke's current position."

No that is your inverted logic. This poor man needs a remedial class in Catholic teachings and also one in logic, virtues and Truth.

Unfortunately that arguement is going to be made quite often. The libs will soon demand that Bishop Galleone of the Diocese of St. Augustine withold Communion from Jeb Bush (yes, he is Catholic) because of his support of the death penalty. They will completely ignore the fact that the Church has historically supported war and capital punishment, yet has never supported abortion.
