Bishops Conference crackdown
Apparently they don't want the official 'Catholics for Kerry' website run from their offices. Bad publicity and the like.
I think the action was a bit reactionary. But I can't say Ekeh didn't make things easy for them:
"Ekeh acknowledges that some of his writings on his personal Web site were critical of the bishops (he criticized, for example, the bishops' statements on gay marriage) though he says he was always supportive of 'the church itself.'"
"I believe Kerry's entire vision resonates with Catholic social teaching," said Ekeh, and his support for the candidate "is in no way close to being contradictory with what I did at the conference."
That last statement is a bit telling, and epitomizes what might have made the Conference leadership somewhat concerned.
