Ohhh... Ya Just Gotta Love That Objective Mainstream Media!
So objective, so fair

I'm sure you'll notice the descriptive phrases just as quickly as I did. Here's some of the report from the AP;
Report: Kennedy barred from communion by bishop
By RAY HENRY, Associated Press Writer

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Roman Catholic Bishop Thomas Tobin has banned Rep. Patrick Kennedy from receiving Communion, the central sacrament of the church, in Rhode Island because of the congressman's support for abortion rights, Kennedy said in a newspaper interview published Sunday.

The decision by the outspoken prelate, reported on The Providence Journal's Web site, significantly escalates a bitter dispute between Tobin, an ultra orthodox bishop, and Kennedy, a son of the nation's most famous Roman Catholic family.
Don't fret, Paddy Boy. Just head back down to DC and take a dip in the Wuerl-pool. He has no problem administering The Holy Eucharist to baby-killers such as yourself, despite what the official teaching of the Catholic Church is.

Or as Donald Schmuck himself says - "the Church just didn't use Communion" as a "weapon."

Just look up "Moral Coward" in the dictionary, I'm sure you'll see a picture of Archpresider Wuerl next to it.

UPDATE!

I've just read somewhere (sorry, can't recall) that Bishop Tobin hasn't denied Holy Communion to Patrick Kennedy just within the Diocese of Providence, RI... but throughout all of Christendom.

It's up to his brother bishops to back him up. Fat chance.

Bishop Tobin might have just saved Kennedy's soul. Some day he'll be grateful he didn't get to continue to receive unworthily like his dad.

I hope he realizes what's just happened to him and amend his ways.

Jumped for joy when I heard this at 6 am on Fox.

I love how the media is misrepresenting it. Inaccurate & definitely not objective.

They make it sound like Kennedy is banned from Communion is Rhode Island. Not true, he is banned from receiving Communion. But Tobin can only enforce it in RI. Like you I don't expect Wuerl to do anything, just like he didn't for Sibelius.

But it is good to see 1 Bishop w/ a spine.

It will be interesting to see how the Catholic in Name Only gang react to this. I predict it will be the usual BS & the MSM will treat it as gospel while painting Tobin etc as villiams.

Nice to see there are still some Catholic bishops who have a spine. I get so sick of heretics accusing bishops of "turning the communion rail into a battlefield" as if they are free to lie and spread heresy.

So effectively Kennedy has been excommunicated.

Let's here it for Bishop Tobin, whose jockstrap could hold a Toyota!

Adeo,
No, not really. Excommunication would have shut him out of all the sacraments except Penance and would have included no funeral or burial in a Catholic cemetary.

Is Patrick Kennedy actually the product of inbreeding?

Has a pope ever declared anyone guilty of the unforgiveable sin?

It's a start - The entire USCCB could our prayers!
