Just as the light of the full moon reveals the werewolves among us, the growing number of statements issued by bishops with spines in defense of the integrity of the faith and the sanctity of Communion designed to safeguard the faith , as reported on Catholic Kerry Watch, Episcopal Spine Alert, and elsewhere are bringing the defiance of Holy Mother Church by pro-abortion CINO politicians into the light of day. This morning's Associated Press provides us with the latest example:
Gov. John Baldacci [D-ME] says he plans to take Communion whenever he chooses, despite a move by anti-abortion groups to deny the sacrament to Roman Catholic politicians who support abortion rights.
Revealing his true religion, Baldacci reminds us:
America was founded on the principles of religious freedom and separation of church and state. He said he takes his Catholicism seriously and tries to practice his religion every day.
No doubt babies about to be murdered in the their mothers wombs—Catholic and non-Catholic alike— would join me in wishing that the "religion" Baldacci practices daily were Roman Catholicism and not American secularism. And what does Baldacci's bishop have to say? Nothing that would merit notice on Episcopal Spine Alert. As the AP concludes:
A panel of America's Catholic hierarchy is considering whether bishops should settle on uniform church sanctions against U.S. Catholic politicians who champion abortion rights.
A spokeswoman for Maine Bishop Richard Malone says he's waiting to hear what the panel comes up with before taking a position on the Communion issue.
Waiting until after the election, no doubt, as befits a true disciple of Cardinal McCarrick. Too bad the babies don't have that long to wait.

Since 1995, Michelman's group has given Kerry a 100% rating for his voting record to defend abortion.
