U.S. Bishop bars pro-abortion politicians from communion


Catholic politicians who vote to support abortion or euthanasia may no longer receive Communion in the La Crosse Diocese of Wisconsin until they publicly renounce their positions on those issues, says Bishop Raymond Burke.

The La Crosse bishop posted the decree on the diocese's web site after previously sending private letters to three Catholic lawmakers, urging them to vote more in line with the faith they profess.
