Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius purports to be "a practicing Catholic", all the while acting against her Church's teachings on the sanctity of life by governing as a pro-abortion (excuse me, "pro-choice") Democrat.
Her bishop, Kansas City Archbishop Joseph Naumann, after meeting with Gov. Sebelius on the matter several times, has taken corrective action by telling Gov. Sebelius to refrain from Communion until she has gone to Confession for and publicly repented of her position on abortion that is in conflict with Church teaching.
Guess whose actions the editorial board of the local Kansas City rag deems "scandalous"?
But let's be clear: what The Star is really upset about is that they KNOW - given the Democrat push to win back the Catholic vote this go-round - that Archbishop Naumann's actions effectively signal the end of Gov. Sebelius as a serious contender in the Obama Veepstakes.
