Ash Wednesday has to do with penitence. Wonder if Baby-Killer Kerry got the message?

What a crock. And I wonder if anybody could check to see what he ate that day, and see if he really fasted and abstained, like Catholics are supposed to do on Ash Wednesday.

Coincidentally, while commenting on same sex-marriages, a man, desperate to find a spouse, eyes John Kerry's backside.

Did he do this last year? Or the year before or whatever?

I'm not Catholic, so I don't understand the real significance (Southern Baptist here) but surely this is very important to Catholics.

It would just make me sick if he used this as a photo-op.

BTW, if anyone would be kind enough to explain, I would really appreciate it.

It's a reminder that we are mortal.

When the priest puts the ashes on your head, he says,"Remember, man, that you are dust and unto dust you shall return."

When I was young it was a ritual that started the Lenten season. There was a prayer service and then everyone stood in line to go to the front of the church. A mixture of oil and and ashes of palms from the previous year's Palm Sunday celebrations were placed on the forhead either as a thumbprint or as a cross and the words were said, " From dust thou are, and to dust thou shalt return." It was a visible reminder and probably decended from early Christian and Jewish times where one covered oneself with ashes to mourn death.

Yep, he sure is, pandering for votes and showing how holy and faithful he is. I sure hope Bush attacks him on his unholy record.

You're welcome.

His using this as a photo-op makes me ill, too, and angry.

Our faith, which is beautiful beyond words to tell, has enough bad publicity these days without some hypocrite using it to pretend to be something he's not....

...or would it be... to pretend not to be something he is?

John Kerry today had ash smeared on his forehead in another attempt to hide the 666 mark of the beast. After numerous plastic surgeries, and botox injections, the mark has seemed to enlarge. A close Kerry advisor was quoted as saying "We know an openly active minion of satan cannot be elected President, so we are aggressively pursuing the "how can we fool them today" strategy. The ash seemed like a good idea as it could be a way to fool the dimwits in flyover country into thinking that our candidate does not support the murder of millions of innocent unborn children, the continued unchecked reign of tyrants who like to put their subjects in plastic shredders for fun, or the destruction of every Judeo-Christian belief that provides the moral foundation of our republic."
When questioned about these positions, Mr Kerry's spokesman became quite agitated, and said "How dare you question Mr. Kerry's patriotism. He served in Vietnam. He got medals in Vietnam. It's George Bush's fault that when he came home from Vietnam he wasn't annointed king of America for having gone to Vietnam. If Bush hadn't been AWOL from the National Guard, the military leaders would have had time to focus on Mr. Kerry, and install him as President for life. We are just trying to remedy that oversight now, and we believe Mr. Bush should step down now and allow Mr. Kerry, who was in Vietnam, to assume his rightful poition. After all, Mr Bush wasn't elected you know."

Back to you Dan...

This high priest perhaps (albeit, from the grave)? Might answer the other poster's observation that the cross is upside-down!

It depends. What day of this week is it?

Sunday, not.
Monday, is.
Tuesday, not.
Wednesday, is.

Is it is. Depending on what the meaning of the word "is" is.
