McCarrick vs. Burke on the Eucharist

The Eucharist: Cardinal McCarrick vs. Archbishop Burke

From Ed Peters, Canon Lawyer: Recently Cardinal Theodore McCarrick expressed his opinion on an important point of pastoral practice, namely, whether to withhold Holy Communion from notoriously pro-abortion Catholic politicians. McCarrick specifically expressed disagreement with Abp. Raymond Burke, who holds that the Eucharist should not be administered to certain pro-abortion Catholic politicians.

But in disagreeing with Burke, I think that McCarrick mischaracterized the question and Burke's compelling answer to it.
