“The Church had forbidden Ted Kennedy from receiving Communion in 1983, following his divorce from his first wife, Joan. According to his biographer Adam Clymer, he received an annulment “10 or 11 years” later. He married Victoria in 1992. She had interned for him in 1976.”

After you cheat on your wife, put her through Chappaquiddick, and after she has given you multiple children, and bore the pain of a miscarriage 1 month after Chappaquiddick, the church decides to give you an annulment 10-11 years after divorce, so that you can take communion? Based on what? That the marriage was never consummated? That she wasn't as Catholic and pious as you? Or does it have something to do with how much got put into the offering plate? Makes me sick to my stomach.

The swimmer admitted that he never intended to honor his vows, thus a marriage, as defined by Canon Law, never existed. Kennedy was just fornicating while he was "married" to Joan.

He married Victoria in 1992.

In a civil ceremony in his house in McLean, VA. not in the Church. Reggie Raclin and the swimmer were simply shacking up.

Didn’t know about it myself. Of course in 1991 they had pedophile enabling Archbishop Bernard Francis Law in authority and running interference. Got to do more research.
