What does it take to get the bishops of the United States to act as shepherds of the people of God? Do they expect a personal revelation from the Master? If they won't listen to canon law, then why should the rest of us listen to them? Jashu

Pseudodionysius: Are you talking about the rarity of the event, or to make it clear that most American bishops aren't so unreasonable? After all, most Catholic politicians who support abortion are good civil servants, loving their second wives deeply, and willing to go the extra mile to investigate the possibility of getting an annulment, due to the strength of their faith... Now that I think of it, isn't remarriage without an annulment a sufficient cause to deny the Eucharist to someone??

Has Bishop Wilton Gregory commented on this? It seems that we've had a rare sighting of 2 Bishop upholding the Faith -- I am sure that the USCCB will want to draw attention to this via press conference.
