U.S. Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy has charged into the debate over same-sex marriage, criticizing the Vatican for its opposition to laws recognizing gay and lesbian couples.

A member of the country's most legendary Roman Catholic political family, representing the most Catholic state in the nation, Kennedy said he refuses to follow the Vatican's edict, issued last week, imploring Catholic lawmakers to oppose same-sex unions.

"I see the policy of opposing same-sex marriages or unions, whatever you call it, as bigotry or discrimination," Kennedy said yesterday in an interview.

I strongly disagree with the statement that the Kennedys represent a legendary Roman Catholic family. At best, this gaggle of misfits represent hedonism.

Post 8....Amen.

The Kennedy tribe is representative of American Catholics, not American Roman Catholics, in my view.
