Here is an interesting interview by NRO with Brian Golden a Democratic state representative from Massachusetts.
Rep. Golden: If you look at it objectively you can see a profound difference. When John Kennedy spoke to people about his religion, he was essentially saying, "I’m a Catholic, but don’t hold it against me." John Kerry essentially says, "I’m a Catholic, but don’t hold me to it."
It’s one thing if you don’t believe that human life begins at conception. However, John Kerry admits he believes that life begins at conception but won’t do anything to protect it in law. How does he square his conscience with his official antipathy to all legislation protecting human life? John Kennedy said that "if the time should ever come…when my office would require me to either violate my conscience or violate the national interest, then I would resign the office; and I hope any conscientious public servant would do likewise." Can you imagine that coming from John Kerry? Senator Kerry’s willingness to place political expedience before conscience is disturbing no matter what your faith.
If John Kerry wins the election he will be the most famous Catholic in the world.
Re: “If John Kerry wins the election he will be the most famous Catholic in the world.”
And simultaneously the most famous anti-Catholic in the world.
God help us if JFK II shams his way into the presidency, he will represent a major progressive victory in the American Catholic Church.
If you thought the Catholic path to heaven
was wide before, get ready for an ever expanding waisteline. JFK makes a mockery of the Holy Family. The secular assult has only just begun
to destroy us, and the non-testosterine Church
seems helpless to stand up in the name of the Father.
Rep. Golden almost exactly echoes my thoughts on this matter. It would be nice to see Golden rise through the ranks and stick to the principles he talks about in thatinterview.
I dunno. I think the Pope will probably still be more famous than John Kerry.
Perhaps you mean most famous Catholic layperson…
…but then there would be some movie actors that would probably fit that bill better (Ah-nult… and he’s pro-choice, too, so it’s not like there’s much difference there.)
I would have emailed this to you, but I couldn’t find an email addy (probably didn’t look hard enough) so I thought of you when my brother sent this to me last night…. I hope you haven’t seen it yet! http://www.kontraband.com/show/show.asp?ID=1647
