Pre-Papal Politicking 

Incidentally, it was ultimately Pope Ratzo, in his non-superhero guise of Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, who stuck his German nose into American politics and told Catholics that they couldn't vote for John Kerry because of his pro-choice stance... It didn't come from John Paul II. It came from Bennie X to the 6...
"The minister of Holy Communion must refuse to distribute it” when warning and counsel given to the manifest sinner “have not had their effect."
That quote comes from Ratzinger; the context comes from here.

Yes, it's a conservative source that argues in favor of Ratzinger's position (and meddling) on the issue -- but sometimes you get a better idea of the true danger when you march into the Lion's Den to get the info from the horse's mouth.

And yes, I intentionally mixed that metaphor...
