IS JOHN KERRY A BAD CATHOLIC?....I haven't spent much time actually I haven't spent any time on the idiotic question of whether or not John Kerry is a bad Catholic, but it's becoming a real Twilight Zone kind of issue. The definition of "bad" appears to be:

  • You are pro-choice. It doesn't matter if you are pro-war, pro-death penalty, or pro-child labor. The only church teachings that matter in this regard are those related to abortion.

  • You are a Democrat. Republicans appear to be good Catholics no matter what.

No More Mister Nice Blog has the latest from the Archdiocese of New York. Maybe it's time to take away their tax exempt status?
