"If someone is living in a lifestyle that is publicly against the Gospel as interpreted in the church, whether heterosexual or they're gay, no, they don't take communion. But that's the discipline of the sacrament that applies to everybody, not just to gays."

-- Francis Cardinal George, the outspokenly homophobic Roman Catholic Archbishop of Chicago, throwing a hissy fit because the state of Illinois passed marriage equality. George joins several of his colleagues in attempting to deny communion, either to sexually active LGBT people or pro-equality Catholics.
