A second wife for Teddy after the (small c) church granted an annulment for an invalid reason!

Just imagine, a Bishop exercising his magisterial authority, in obedience to the Church, has the audacity to defy the Kennedy mystique where Catholic liberals have long resided in the diocesan woodwork of Massachusetts, the so-called "Cradle of Liberty".

The fact that these Catholics-in-name only (CINO) have held reign for such a long period had to be a shock when the Bishop acted in accordance with the teachings of the Church and not their political-social ideology.

Thank you Bishop for exercising your pastoral duty to guard your flock against the wolves in false clothing.

throughout history it has been a painful but necessary exercise for the Church to purge heretics. The Bishops if now serious are about fifty years late in taking definitive action. This has hurt the Church.

This is more evidence of a turning and from comments in this article, the liberals are totally dumbfounded.

Kennedy responded in a press release, saying of the bishop, “by objecting to my appearance at Anna Maria College he has made a judgment about my worthiness as a Catholic. This is a sad day for me and an even sadder one for the Church I love.”

Lent is a good time for Kennedy to think about the worthiness of her soul and her apostasy and heresy, IMO. Is she a follower of Eve who said "no," or is she a follower of Mary, who said "yes" to God?

Who does she want to follow, Eve or Mary? She has to decide that herself. Maybe she can use the time that has just been freed up to reflect on that question.

Joan deserved an annulment since the swimmer admitted that he never intended to honor his marriage vows.

Having said that, Victoria Reggie Raclin is still married to her first husband, in the eyes of the Church, since civil divorce is not recognized. One of these reporters should stick a microphone in her face and ask her why she married Teddy in a civil ceremony in his house in McLean, Va. if her faith is so important to her. She and the swimmer were unrepentant public adulterers. Bishop McManus is correct and should be applauded in his decision.

That is what bishops are supposed to do, dearie. And it wasn't a hard judgment to make, either.

“Sister Janet Eisner, president of Emmanuel College, which gave Vicki an honorary degree in 2010, said, “I find it hard to believe in Massachusetts, in 2012, that this is happening.”

Would seem the Sister is in need of a refresher course.

I wish this bishop would come to Newark NJ and get rid of the gay marriage course at our diocesan university.
