President Bush was out of line to ask the Vatican to get U.S. bishops more involved in promoting his conservative social agendaIt seems that Kerry would like to have his cake and eat it too. He further stated,
...we have a separation of church and state in the United States. There are many things that are of concern and taught by the church with respect to war, with respect to the environment, with respect to poor people, our responsibilities to each other, and I am very comfortable with where I am with respect to those. But I am not a spokesperson for the church, and the church is not a spokesperson for the United States of America.So, he's comfortable that his stance on, say, abortion is completely contrary to where the church stands? What difference does it make that he's comfortable? If he is in direct opposition to the teachings of the church, regarding abortion, then what is the basis for his arrogant statement that he is not a spokesperson for the church and that the church is not a spokesperson for the United States of America? The killing of innocent unborn human life, Mr. Kerry, is not a political issue... it is a moral one.
