CWN Editor's Note: Senator Dick Durbin said that being denied Communion was “not a happy experience,” in an interview with America magazine.

Senator Durbin, an Illinois Democrat who supports legal abortion, said that since he has been barred from Communion in his home diocese of Springfield, Illinois, “I found another Catholic venue, the Archdiocese of Chicago,” that has become “my new faith home.”

In his interview with the Jesuit magazine, Senator Durbin says that “the church has a long way to go” in recognizing the rights of women, and suggests that “it’s at the root of some of the difficulties the bishops have, particularly when it comes to issues such as choice.”
