A real storm brewing over Pro-Abortion "Catholic" Politicians in the US

In case you have been living under a rock, in the last 48 hours a "perfect storm" has begun to brew in the United States over pro-abortion politicians who are publicly known to be practicing (if not actually "faithful") Catholics. And, as with our "test case" here in Oz, the bishops are the ones caught in the centre (since responsibility for the administration of the eucharist in their dioceses ultimately falls upon them).

Here are the links. Read them for yourself.

Pelosi has basically said tot eh bishops: "bite me!"

Wonder where it will go to from here.

I live in Pelosiville, and I can tell you Nan is not the fastest ship in the fleet. I think she hit on an argument that she thought would give her some wiggle-room, and didn't realize that trying to defend her position in debate is the last thing she and the other pro-abortion Catholic politicians want to do.

Their only hope is to fudge the issue, and rely on Democrat bishops to want to do the same. Now she has put them on the hot seat. It will be most interesting to read our Archbishop's response when it comes out.
