I’m late getting to E.J. Dionne’s column on Doug Kmiec being denied Communion on account of his support of pro-choice Barack Obama. It seems to me that Ross Douthat says most of what needs to be said. I’m not Catholic, but I agree with the Church’s teachings on life issues and Just War theory. Kmiec’s justifications for supporting Obama are not to my mind persuasive, but to him they constitute a proportionate reason to back the Democrat in spite — not because — of their differing views on abortion.
