Catholicism and Logic

Created by: Jillian

In response to the allegation that he told Representative Patrick Kennedy that it would be "inappropriate" for him to continue receiving communion, Bishop Thomas Tobin said,

"I am disappointed that the congressman would make public my request...that sought to provide solely for his spiritual well-being." "I have no desire to continue the discussion of Congressman Kennedy's spiritual life in public."

The Bishop was concerned for the Congressman's spiritual well-being because of his position on federal funding of abortion. So, my only question is...if abortion is a matter of spiritual well-being, and spiritual well-being should not be discussed in public, then why did the Conference of Catholic Bishops go to Speaker Nancy Pelosi to challenge her on abortion in health care reform?
