Phoenix, AZ (LifeNews.com) -- If you're an elected official or political candidate in Arizona who backs abortion, don't look for a speaking engagement at a Catholic church in Phoenix. The diocese there has decided to disallow giving a platform to any political figure who supports abortion, which is contrary to church teachings.
Thus far, Gov. Janet Napolitano is the only one who has been affected by Phoenix Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted's decision. . . .
