In so much of the discussion today about Catholic politicians who hold and promote very un-Catholic ideas, we hear calls for excommunication.

In truth, I have called for the excommunication of such pols many times. Nancy (please excommunicate me) Pelosi comes to mind. Recently, her comments about her faith and her policies prompted many calls for her excommunication including mine.

At the National Catholic Register I explain why. Please read it and tell me what you think.
