"My religious affiliation, my religious practices and the degree to which I am a good or not so good Catholic, I prefer to leave to the priests,'' Giuliani said. ``That would be a much better way to discuss it. That's a personal discussion and they have a much better sense of how good a Catholic I am or how bad a Catholic I am.''
Giuliani is alone among the major Republican candidates in favoring abortion rights, a practice that the Catholic Church opposes. Some church officials have suggested that candidates who favor abortion rights should be denied the sacrament of communion.
On a personal level, Giuliani has been married three times, with one annulment and one divorce. Catholics who are divorced and have remarried are not permitted to receive communion.
If you can't trust Giuliani in large matters, like abortion, then how can you trust him in small?
