The Bishop has a lot of nerve to critizise anybody with the Catholic Churches history of pediphile priests and sanctuary Churches and support for illegals. Talk about Disappointment! They want to play but they don't want to pay.

Most Catholic bishops are disappointments, at best.

I'll choose a Kennedy instead almost any time.

The church of Pope Bruce LXIX has paid out over $500,000,000 to victims of queer priests who were not reported for their felonies but quietly transfered to other parishes where they could continue their vile acts. If the Kennedys are shi* what is the Catholic Church?

Obama loves Abortions.

He even voted against giving Basic Health Care to new borns after they were suffering from a botched abortion.

They were not "queer"-
they were pedophiles and satanic.

Yes and how about Obama's "Safe school Czar" that didn't alert authorities after a 15 yr old student confided that he was getting sexed up by old men in public bathrooms?

Factcheck.org supports your conclusion.

Obama voted many times to prevent basic health care from being administered to new born babies that survived the attempt on their life.

As a Catholic, I say the church has LOST it's moral authority. The church turned a blind eye to CHILD abuse by priests and reassigned the alleged offenders to other churches where they were free to molest other CHILDREN. No one likes abortions, but I care more for children than for zygotes. Lastly, only because of US tort laws has the church been forced to do something to stop CHILD abuse in the church. The problem has not been acknowledged in other countries where the church is not being forced to pay huge punitive judgments or settlements.

I guarantee you the church will become "relevant" again. We watered down religion and the way we live. The state has been uplifted and the birth pangs of totalitarianism is taking shape in such a slow manner that can only be measured over decades. The true hate now rules.

Agreed. And you might add to that list of one, any other church. The media, in general, seems to go out of its way to legitimize and substantiate what amounts to little more than barroom banter by church people, especially as it pertains to a stunted intellect like a Kennedy or any high profile democrat.

A church can say what it wants to say, about anybody, anytime. But why does the media try to turn the statements into news, especially when object of the statement is a piece of human garbage like a Kennedy.
