Bishop Robert J. Carlson - Diocese of Sioux Falls

Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle is a pro-abortion, Catholic Democrat and up for reelection this year. Of late, the matter of Catholic politicians who do not subscribe to the Church's pro-life stance and teachings on abortion has become a hot political topic. With the November elections quickly approaching, candidates like Daschle and John Kerry (also a pro-abortion Catholic) are finding themselves in a sticky situation.

Daschle, who hails from the conservative state of South Dakota, really has his hands full trying to trick his constituents into thinking he is, if not conservative, at least moderate. This recent article from Most. Rev. Robert J. Carlson Bishop of Sioux Falls will be published in Monday's "Bishop's Bulletin," and it won't be helpful to Daschle's reelection efforts.
