Looks like Teddy Kennedy may have just snuck in under the wire. If the Vatican would issue a statement to this affect and follow through, I will be amazed. Archbishop Burke is a Bishop of extraordinary courage and honesty. He is missed in St. Louis.

"Friday evening in Washington was no different. Throughout his 50-minute address, the archbishop returned again and again to the scandal of Catholic politicians who support abortion or same-sex marriage. He did not mince his words: "It is not possible to be a practicing Catholic and to conduct oneself in this manner."

"Neither Holy Communion nor funeral rites should be administered to such politicians," said Archbishop Burke. "To deny these is not a judgment of the soul, but a recognition of the scandal and its effects."
