Regarding “Dares them to deny,” July 2, Page 15:

Recently, U.S. Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., dared the U.S. bishops, via social media, to deny him Communion over his support for legal abortion and other controversial issues. How do we respond to this Catholic politician who publicly defies church teaching about the sanctity of life? Well, to about one-half of western Oregon Catholics, Rep. Lieu is presidential material.
