I'm pretty sure she is.
I remember when she was governor of Kansas one of the priests told her she couldn't take communion anymore. She didn't listen so I think they excommunicated her. I'm not positive but I know the Priests in Topeka, Kansas refused her communion on more than one occasion.
I believe that it is time for all Bishops to instruct all Pastors to begin preaching the necessity of voting our Catholic consciences on election day. Then, if the secularists dare to call in the IRS, we exercise our collective muscle.
As for Sibelius, like many so-called Catholic politicians, she cares more for politics than the Church.
Not only has she insisted on enforcing the funding for abortion and birth control, she was instrumental in stopping the Federal funding of Catholic adoption services. If anyone deserves it, she deserves public excommunication and that her Bishop should demand a public act of atonement for entry back into the Church.
The reason all of this is happening is that the Obama re-election team knows that Catholics do not vote their consciences, and that unlike Evangelical Christians, Bishops and Pastors do not guide their flocks at election time.
