Human Life International’s Press Release on S. Ted Kennedy

by Steve Ray on August 29, 2009

I couldn’t agree more with the HLI  Commentary and Press Release–

“We must, as a matter of precept, pray for the salvation of heretical Catholics like Senator Edward Kennedy, but we do not have to praise him let alone extol him with the full honors of a public Catholic funeral and all the adulation that attends such an event. There was very little about Ted Kennedy’s life that deserves admiration from a spiritual or moral point of view. He was probably the worst example of a Catholic statesman that one can think of. When all is said and done, he has distorted the concept of what it means to be a Catholic in public life more than anyone else in leadership today. . . .”

Steve, thank you, thank you, thank you for printing this. It is good to see some honesty. I am grieving very much over this whole situation. Not only Senator Kennedy, but all the other “pro-choice” (pro-abortion) Catholic politicians. I think of St. Thomas Becket, one of the many who have drawn me towards the Catholic Church. He paid with his life for “the honor of God.” Wouldn’t it be better for the politicians themselves, not to mention the Church, to be disciplined by the Church in some appropriate way? Is this possible? I am turning myself inside out to go through annulment procedures in order to become a Catholic, yet see spread before me constantly flourishing green bay trees who promote intrinsic evil and no one says them nay. It is a great comfort to know that something like this wouldn’t happen in my parish church.

Tomorrow will be better.
