Washington (CNN) – Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy, A Rhode Island Democrat, said the Roman Catholic bishop of Providence has forbidden him from receiving communion due to his support for abortion rights, the Providence Journal reported on its Web site Sunday.
Kennedy said Providence Bishop Thomas J. Tobin "instructed me not to take communion and said that he has instructed the diocesan priests not to give me communion," the paper reported.
The report said a spokesman for Tobin declined to comment on whether the bishop told Kennedy not to receive communion. According to the report, the spokesman denied that Tobin ordered any priests to refuse Kennedy the fundamental Catholic sacrament.
