Shame on you, Keith, you're late to the party on this one. Sullivan had it here May 16th.
But it's still more reason to shake your head over the Catholic Church. They denied communion to an Obama supporter who is as staunch an opponent of abortion as you'll find because Obama supports abortions. Never mind that Obama believes that personal responsibility should be taken to prevent unwanted pregnancies in the first place, thus reducing the number of abortions. But birth control is verboten by the church, because it might give people the crazy notion that sex doesn't have to be something to fear, let alone be as dangerous and risky as possible.
I can't rant about this enough. The Holy Roman Catholic and Apostolic Church is completely fucking clueless. They forbid both abortion and the means by which it could be prevented. Stupid, stupid, STUPID!!! They define George Carlin's comment that these people are not pro-life, they're anti-woman. "They believe a woman's primary role is to function as a brood mare for the State." Or the church, in this case.
You people make me fucking sick.
