Lane Core Jr. asks “Why is it important to have Catholics in public life if, once there, they’re no different from anybody else?”
Unfortunately most modern politicians who advertise themselves as Catholics are martyrs in reverse. The word martyr means witness and regardless of the mindless justifications that come out of their mouths their actions are anything but a witness to the faith. John Kerry’s recent quote as saying that “life begins at conception” reminds me of Jesus’ parable of the two sons. The one who did what the father asked was the one that was obedient and not the one who only said they would do it but didn’t.
