There’s the door, don’t let it hit you on the way out.

WICHITA, Kansas, May 9, 2008 – Church leaders in Kansas City are asking Governor Kathleen Sebelius, a Catholic, not to take communion.

It’s all tied to the abortion debate and a bill the governor vetoed this year that would have imposed new restrictions on abortion providers. It was an action the Archbishop says was not in line with the Catholic Church.

In April, the governor vetoed a bill that would have allowed a parent, her spouse or family to sue and abortion provider if they believed the doctor violated restriction on late-term abortions. Sebelius said at the time that the bill could block a woman’s abortion even when it was necessary to save her life.

It was that veto that sparked a column by the Archbishop of the Kansas City Archdiocese. He writes, “I hope that my request of the governor, not to present herself for holy communion will provoke her to reconsider the serious spiritual and moral consequences of her past and present actions.” … (Source)

And I hear Jesus saying to our Bishops here in Canada:  “Go, ye, and do likewise”.
