Kerry gets religion
By Diogenes ( articles ) | Nov 05, 2005
A year after his failed bid for the White House, Senator Kerry has rediscovered his faith:
As a Christian, as a Catholic, I think hard about those responsibilities that are moral and how you translate them into public life...
Good, good. And...?
There is not anywhere in the three-year ministry of Jesus Christ, anything that remotely suggests -- not one miracle, not one parable, not one utterance -- that says you ought to cut children's health care or take money from the poorest people in our nation to give it to the wealthiest people in our nation.
Fair enough. Now a question for you, Senator: Where in the Gospel does it suggest that you ought to dismember children in the womb, or allow others to do so, or ask taxpayers to pay the bills when it's done?
Oh, and by the way, Uncle Di will now be watching for the angry editorials criticizing Kerry for making a partisan appeal based on his religious affiliation.
Oh, and also by the way, let's have a nice round of applause for Cardinal McCarrick and his committee, which is-- still-- working so hard on that policy document that will help American bishops decide how to cope with Catholic politicians who flout Catholic teachings, yet continue to cash in on their Catholic credentials.
