I nearly fell out of my chair when watching Cardinal McCarrick at Teddy Kennedy’s graveside proudly reading the letter Teddy had sent to the pope via Obama. Instead of a letter full of repentance for his sins, and humility as he neared his judgment day with God, Teddy instead bragged about his work for immigrants, education, the poor, healthcare for all—the usual liberal rundown of Catholic “social justice”. Teddy even had the audacity to brag about voting for the “conscience clause”, which allows Catholic healthcare providers to not be forced to participate in abortions. Do you understand what that means? Teddy is telling the pope how he is such a great liberal American Catholic–he has no objection to anyone murdering a fetus, but preferably just let the non-Catholics do the dirty deed!!! Wow, I am sure Pope Benedict was really impressed with Teddy’s bold disregard of Catholic dogma: all life is precious and begins at conception. There is an editorial in the NYT today comparing the pro-life Eunice with pro-abortion Teddy; many people have said that Eunice did more for society than her brother Teddy. One would presume all of Teddy’s siblings were prolife. In particular, his mother Rose could not have been happy her youngest son flouted the Vatican with his open and staunch support of abortion, including partial birth abortion which is plainly infanticide. No wonder Teddy and Obama got along so well.
In my next post, I will discuss the “form letter” sent back to Teddy from the Vatican.
