    Will her bishops (California and Washington) come out from under their desks and speak up about this disgraceful situation as to a prominent self-proclaimed Catholic??

    Not a surprise. This is a slap in the face of the Catholic Church. May God have mercy on her soul.

    It is time for her bishop to put the hammer down and tell her she is not to receive Holy Communion and also for the bishop here in Washington D.C. to do the same. This woman is not Catholic. She does all she can to restrict and make fun of the Church's doctrines.
