Should communion be a political weapon?

An article by E.J. Dionne Jr. was published by the Washington Post today on the controversy surrounding Douglas Kmiec. Professor Kmiec is a law professor at Pepperdine University who once served as the dean of Catholic University. He also served in the Reagan Administration for the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel. In a surprise move, Kmiec has recently endorsed Obama for president. Later, at a meeting for Catholic business leaders, Kmiec was denied communion by a local priest because of this endorsement and Obama's position on abortion.
