Then take a different example. In the late 1950s, certain Catholic politicians in Louisiana made it known that they would oppose desegregation no matter what. The archbishop gave them nearly ten years to change their minds, hearts, and most importantly, their public stances. They refused.
He excommunicated them. Obviously, being in a state of excommunication, they could no longer receive the Sacraments.
Was he wrong to do this? This was rather embarrassing, shocking, and humiliating to these men.

I think that Archbishop likely already approached the vermin Kerry. As well as Chappaquiddick Ted. I think Chappaquiddick Ted is still a vestigial Catholic, and made a man's choice, as a result. He believes in the sacrament of abortion, and thus forsook the Sacrament of Life. But the vermin Kerry apparently did not have the moral honesty to do likewise.
PS - The German bishops generally, the entire German Catholic Church, by and large, condemned National Socialism and all its evil works.

(To permit them to receive is to reinforce the delusion that they may endorse the murder of innocents)
The persons involved in the New Orleans Archdiocese to whom you refer were then Archbishop Cody (later Cardinal Cody of Chicago) who excommunicated publicly the Catholic boss of Plaquemines Parish (County) just south of New Orleans (one Leander Perez) for his persistent public racism against blacks. Prior to his excomunication, Leander Perez, who was also a major construction contractor, was probably the largest single donor to the Archdiocese of New Orleans, usually in the form of fully completed new schools. Cody did the right thing. I believe that this happened in the 1960s.
