MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - Milwaukee’s new Catholic Archbishop does not expect to deny communion to lawmakers who vote against their Catholic teachings. But Jerome Listecki says he won’t rule it out – and he’ll consider it if an individual circumstance justifies it. Listecki addressed the issue Tuesday at a Newsmaker Luncheon held by the Milwaukee Press Club. Former La Crosse Bishop Raymond Burke made an issue of it 7 years ago. He told Catholics who are state and federal lawmakers that they risk being denied communion if they vote pro-choice on abortion issues, in violating of Catholic teachings. Listecki says it’s hard to see how somebody can be pro-choice while knowing the teachings of the church – but it’s possible to be pro-choice while seeking to limit abortions.
