From American Life League Oct. 22 Communique:  The Milwaukee Archdiocesan Priests Alliance has written to Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, asking that bishops refrain from telling priests to withhold Holy Communion from known pro-abortion public figures, adding, “We do not think it is wise to ask us to make on the spot judgments about the worthiness of any recipient.” The Milwaukee Catholic Herald reported on the letter without comment. American Life League is asking why Milwaukee Archbishop Timothy Dolan has been silent on the issue.  Report Details Hostility to Religious Expression in America   Bishops call on Fox to ensure Mexico votes against human cloning at UN   Gay activists on mission to get vote out for Kerry   Kerry’s Auxiliary Bishops John Allen of the National Catholic Reporter writes that “if the Holy See were to vote in a secret ballot for the American president, Kerry would beat Bush 60-40.” Polling of American bishops would even be higher.
