Gee, Ted...what should we do? (Bishops in DC this week)

Okay, it's from the Washington Post...but still.

One of the issues, evidently, the U.S. Shepherds will address this week in DC is:

The question of whether to limit access to Communion or take other actions in 2006 against Catholic politicians who oppose church teaching on abortion or gay marriage.

Fine. That's a good thing to address. But...uh...

A bishops' task force led by Washington's Cardinal Theodore McCarrick plans to seek advice on this at meetings with Catholic Democrats and Republicans who were recommended by their local bishops, but the bishops' headquarters declined to provide further details.

Let's get this straight. They're seeking advice from Catholic politicians on what to do about...Catholic politicians?
