What does denying Kerry communion based on his view of abortion have to do with homosexuality?

This puzzled me as well ; but I suppose it means he can't have much sympathy for gays either . This , course , would be mere speculation unless he has actually taken a public stand on the issue . Does anybody know ?

Maybe instead it's because Kerry admits he's a mass murderer.

You mean in Vietnam? I don't like Kerry but what our guys do in war is more of a response to what was done to them. If you want to blame anyone look to those who labeled it a conflict instead of a war.

To me, there is no such thing as polite war. The idea is to make the opponent say uncle. It' was their view too.

What he actually did was reconfirm an anti-gay cardinal. I don't know anything about Raymond Burke (except that he wasn't Perry Mason), but William Levada used to be archbishop of San Francisco, where his homophobic remarks got him plenty of local press. Before that, no one even knew we had any Catholics.

Thank you for taking the trouble . He goes on and on about " God's law " and that alone turned me off since I ( and many others ) do not believe either in God or that the Bible is other than a compilation of writings by sometimes far from unprejudiced or intelligentt men . No account is taken of the findings of science and it all sounds like the advice of a not very bright , unlettered spinster . His annoying hesitations tell me he's not very convinced himself either and fishes for ideas as he goes along . Spam , if I ever heard any ..

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. That made my day. I especially liked his comments on Adam and Eve. I've never heard of him before.

I was actually looking for one of his funny "current events" reports from his TV show where he reports that the pope went water skiing, then the picture cuts away to a guy in full pontificals sitting on the papal throne that's had skis attached and is being pulled through the water.

I THINK it was Dave Allen. It's been decades since I sprayed coffee over that one. Heven't been able to locate it.
