— The Roman Catholic archbishop of Kansas City, Kan., calls Gov. Kathleen Sebelius nomination for health and human services secretary “particularly troubling.”

Archbishop Joseph Naumann said Wednesday that he is “concerned personally” for Sebelius, who was tapped by President Barack Obama for the Cabinet position.

Naumann last year urged Sebelius, who is Catholic, to stop taking communion because of her support of abortion rights.

In his comments published in The Catholic Key blog, Naumann said Sebelius would be in a position to make decisions “promoting legalized abortion and her cooperation in this intrinsic evil.”

Some Catholic groups say they’re organizing opposition to the Sebelius appointment.

Maybe he should stop taking communion until there are no more child rape accusations.

Isn't it the Catholic Church that is intrinsically evil with its plethora of pederast priests?

What's a "nomiation?" Hey LJWorld, I'm currently looking for a job. Can I be your part-time proofreader?

A more appropriate headline would be: "KCK archbishop 'concerned' over numerous facets of modern life that don't conform to outdated, dogmatic belief structures"

Anyways, I thought he was supposed to "Judge not lest.....something something". I can't remember the last part. It seems that Mr. Naumann did also.

When the Catholic Church or any other starts PAYING TAXES then they can get involved in POLITICS.

Otherwise - zip it.

Sec. Sebelius could advise the Archbishop that if he doesn't approve of abortions, he is not required to have one. She could also suggest that he manage both the abortion issue and the even greater abomination that is sexual abuse of children by priests by trying to exert the same control over the male apparatus that is at the root of both problems as he is trying to exert over women and families.

Who cares what he thinks. He's ruled by a pope. Which would he put first, the church or his country? That's the problem with a lot of people of late. They id themselves as something other than an American first. Many politicians are more loyal to their party or religion than they are to the people they represent. They forget who they are really working for. The solution to the problem is easy. If you don't like abortion, don't get one. But, of course, according to the Catholic church, every time a woman has a period it's an abortion. It should have been fertilized. Abortions happened before they were legal, it was just underground and dangerous. Is the Catholic church going to support these kids? Are they going to protect a child from the fact that they were a product of rape or incest? Oh yeah, incest is ok to them, but not abortion. What does the Bible say about throwing stones, Mr. judgmental pompous jerk?
