The new Pope, according to this Washington Post profile, wrote a letter of advice to U.S. bishops on denying communion to politicians who support abortion rights, apparently with the aim of hurting John Kerry's campaign. He also "once called homosexuality a tendency toward 'intrinsic moral evil' and dismissed the uproar over priestly pedophilia in the United States as a 'planned campaign' against the church."
