Boston-AP — Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry says the Vatican has crossed the line in America when it says Catholic politicians have a “moral duty” to oppose laws granting legal rights to gay couples.
The Massachusetts senator, who is Catholic, says he believes in the church and cares about it enormously. But he says “it’s important to not have the church instructing politicians.”
Who does the Vatican think it is giving him orders? It’s not like they are NOW, Planned Parenthood, or the DNC. What is with the Church instructing and teaching people? It is as if they take the Gospel seriously or something.
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.” Matt 28:19-20
