Well, here's a video of Mike Allen talking about it, as Jean Esselink wrote, on Morning Joe: http://www.politico.com/multimedia/video/2013/10/...

And here's NBC News' story -- published several hours after this one, which just goes to show you who you should be reading first!

"Foes attack McConnell for $2.9 billion in dam money included in spending and debt bill" http://nbcpolitics.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/10/17/2...

Actually, and respectfully, I have to disagree. And that's part of the problem. The Catholic Church has never actually stated why he was excommunicated, which is ridiculous. But Father Reynolds himself says: "'I've come to this position because I've followed my conscience on women's ordination and gay marriage.''

According to The Age, one Archbishop, who has no more knowledge than the letter sent to Reynolds: "Archbishop Hart said Father Reynolds was excommunicated because after his priestly faculties were withdrawn he continued to celebrate the Eucharist publicly and preach contrary to the teachings of the church."

So, sorry, but I cannot agree with your comment.

We report the news. This is news. And very sad news, at that.

The crux of my upset is this part of the piece:

***
You told CNN, “My son came to Jane, my wife, and I, told us that he was gay, and that it was not a choice, and that it’s just part of who he is, and that’s who he’d been that way for as long as he could remember.”

And then you said, “It allowed me to think of this issue from a new perspective, and that’s of a Dad who loves his son a lot and wants him to have the same opportunities that his brother and sister would have — to have a relationship like Jane and I have had for over 26 years.”

I applaud and am grateful for his evolution. But I expect lawmakers to examine the issues before they vote, esp. on civil rights issues. And he admits he did not.
