Kerry is also divorced. How is it he is still considered a Catholic in good standing?
From another comment on this thread I gather he got his first marriage annulled. The annulment rules are pretty flexible, and NOT just for famous people. There's usually an argument that can be made. I'm surprised that he actually would go to that length instead of just remarrying outside the Church.
Tom Daschle didn't get an annulment, just divorced and remarried, and again, shockingly, claims he doesn't present himself for communion.

Kerry is divorced not an annulment.
Kerry separated from his first wife, Julia Thorne, in 1983, and they finalized their divorce in 1988.
Many others, including Jackie Kennedy Onasis were excommunicated for divorce.

Annulment is just another word for "hypocrisy" in
most cases, for the ones getting it and the ones

Do you know if that is true? There is nothing wrong with him going to Mass,in fact,that is the right thing to do.
