Archbishop Objects to Clinton Rally at St. Mary's University

AP: Archbishop Objects to Clinton Rally, by Michelle Roberts:

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Archbishop Jose Gomez complained Wednesday about plans for a rally by Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, an abortion rights supporter, at a Catholic university.

The archbishop released a statement noting that Clinton and some other presidential candidates' support for abortion rights and embryonic stem-cell research were not in line with Catholic values. The Rev. Pat Rodgers, an archdiocese spokesman, said Gomez was responding to telephone calls and e-mails from concerned Catholics.

Clinton has scheduled a rally at St. Mary's University, the oldest Catholic college in the city, on Wednesday evening.
