Ratzo Benedikt intervened for Bush in 2004 election campaign

Yahoo! News -
"New pope intervened against Kerry in US 2004 election campaign"
"German Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the Vatican theologian who was elected Pope Benedict XVI, intervened in the 2004 US election campaign ordering bishops to deny communion to abortion rights supporters including presidential candidate John Kerry."
This is what T.B.L. still doesn't understand. Why were those Catholics who supported an illegal Iraqi war -- condemned by the heads of the Roman Church and the United Nations as such -- and why are those Americans who support the death penalty, allowed to accept the church's consecrated cookies?

And if this ex-Nazi Youth's aim was to influence our election, isn't there a little matter of the church's tax exemption for some activist judge to reconsider?

just asking,
true blue liberal
