"Once again the Catholic Church is weighed in the balance by the Kennedy family and found wanting."

Diogenes is so good. :-)

Stohn

The Boston Globe article brings up, once again, the priest abuse scandal. When will Catholics stop using this as an excuse not to follow the teachings of the Church? The terrible actions of a handful of American clergy, do not excuse the laity from their Catholic obligations, and these terrible actions do not imply that Catholic teaching is worthless or illegitimate.

Who's that guy who said "Whenever one side ina debate brings up the Nazi analogy, you know theyv'e lost the main argument." Now, I'm not sure that always true, but here's my spin.

Whenever someone attacking Church teaching on this or that bring up the priest abuse scandal, you can be sure they think they've lost the main argument.

As a protestant, I would say Kerry is a "false convert" (tare among wheat). Is this notion in line with Catholic doctrine?

Thanks!

Goodwin's Law I think.

And whenever they say that the money spent on such and such an event would have been better spent on the poor you can bet that the event was orthodox.

nedbrek: It is possible that one could externally profess faith but interiorly lack it.

In reading the Boston Globe article in re: the family prayers, bible readings, and other holy rituals, I can only imagine that some of K. Kennedy's sense of confusion related to the Catholic religion might have been inspired by the well-known Kennedy shadow. I could see how she might find it difficult to balance the family's outer fervent belief practices with the public instances of Kennedy notoriety involving substance abuse, sex and death. A book exploring that "anathema" might be a more honest probing by Kennedy.

Thomas

To quote Prof. kreeft from class one day:

"There are lots of Kennedy Catholics. There aren't a lot of Catholic Kennedys."

The Athenian Stranger

I keep thinking of a camel and an eye of a needle.
