Bishop Bans Kennedy from Eucharist?

Bishop Tobin, Rep. Kennedy, and Holy Communion:

Two posts in quick succession about Bp. Tobin and Rep. Kennedy, the first questioning the coherence of reported claims that Tobin has barred Kennedy from receiving Communion, the second, confirming that no such order has been issued. Not yet, anyway.

I got a kick out of the reporter’s comment that we believe in Extreme Unction–we do–when what she meant was transubstantiation. It reminds me of the CNN reporter who, commenting on the death of Pope John Paul II, called him “the first non-Catholic pope in over 450 years”.

Dirty Harry was right: “A man’s got to know his limitations.”
