I wonder if the good Sister has ever chided Kennedy about his support forabortion and partial bith abortion.

I'd be curious as to what Bill Clinton's position would be, as he has said on many occasions that his mother was so grateful for the Catholic parochial schooling he had during her struggles with single motherhood.

Sometimes it takes a woman to show a man a bit testicular fortitude. God Bless you Sister!

So there ARE some things that can be singled out as being incompatible with the "consistent ethic of life." I'm SHOCKED! The USCCB has consistently maintained that one may only look at a legislator's overall concern for human dignity, not his/her stances on specific issues. After all, isn't that the reason for not publicly denouncing Kerry, Kennedy, Cuomo, et al for their public pro-abortion positions -- because they are "right" on the overall majority of life issues? Seamless garment indeed!
