The Kennedys annulments and support of abortion are clear examples of what you are saying. Many higher ups in the church have put power and money before doctrine.

Oh give it a rest on the "Kennedys guy their annulments' garbage! If you are familiar at all with the Sacrament of Marriage in the Catholic Church, you'll understand that with every one of the Kennedy men, there was never a true marriage because NONE of them ever intended to be faithful to their spouses! They philandered continually, but the public never knew about it because the press kept their secrets.

If either party can be shown to have entered into the Sacrament not intending to abide by the promises made, there is no Sacrament, thus no marriage, thus, grounds to begin the nullification process. Their Civil marriage is handled by the divorce, the pronouncement that there was never a religious marriage is handled by the annulment.

As for the Bishops kissing up to politicians, well they are politicians too, as well as shepherds for their flocks. I just wish they'd start being LESS political and more pastoral!

give it a rest?

Sounds like we're pretty close on the issues. Why let it trickle away. It is evidence of hypocracy in the highest levels of the church.

As for whether or not I'm familiar with the church's sacraments. Personal experience except with two.

Thanx for the homily.
