We cannot judge the degree of ‘repentance’, I agree. But Ted’s blatant defiance of the tenets of his faith shown by his voting record was, as far as I know, never called to account by the Church.

There was plenty of opportunity for the Church to take a stand at the time. It’s not the Kennedy’s choices I am questioning, it is the Church’s lack of ‘spine’, historically, in response to those choices.

I agree that the Church, most especially its American bishops, for decades has scandalized millions of Catholics, by its ‘acceptance’ of the legislative behaviors of militantly pro-choice prominent “Catholic” Democrat politicians.

However, this practicing Catholic iv very reassured that at least once American bishop has stood up for the magisterium.

I wonder how the bishops can square their support for Obamacare with its ‘death panels’ and abortion funding.
