    All that remains now is for Archbishop Vigneron to tell pro-abort Catholic Gov. Granholm that "pro-abortion" is NOT a Catholic position and she needs to reconsider Communion, and tell the assoc. pastor of her home parish that his defense of "choice" as a truly Catholic concept was full of error, unless the choice to kill or steal is authentically Catholic too. Finally, he can ask the pastor of that same parish to apologize for calling the police on the pro-life demonstrators outside his church.
