Archbishop Raymond Burke of St. Louis is scheduled to meet with local Congressman William Lacy Clay today, reported the Associated Press.
The Democratic, pro-abortion senator has said Archbishop Burke has “gone too far” and is “delving into politics” in stating that pro-abortion Catholic politicians should not receive Communion and that voters who support them should go to confession before receiving the Eucharist.
According to the AP, Clay insinuated that the Catholic Church should lose its non-profit status. "Perhaps the Catholic Church should surrender their 501(c) status," he reportedly said.
Archbishop Burke sparked a national debate earlier this year, when he said he would deny Communion to pro-abortion Catholic Senator John Kerry.
