Prayers for the Kennedy family. Lost two members in a short time.

That’s about all I can say.

As a Christian I must pray for his departed soul, so I will.

As an American interested in justice and freedom, well, I’ll just shut up right now.

I had a feeling that Obama’s vacation was planned around it, as if they were told it would be very soon.

OK, I’ll be the first prick to respond:

I wonder if he will meet Mary Jo Kopechne?

Nah. Won’t be in the same place. Never mind.

Surprising. No one has this, not even Drudge
. My local ABC station, which I’ve been watching didn’t break into the announcement.

I have strong Irish heritage.
I am Catholic.

Ted Kennedy is and was a coward and a disgrace.

He deserves as many tears as were shed for Saddam Hussein or an other coward and murderer.

I do hope that he made a contrite confession, and that his soul was saved. It is not my intent to judge, it is my intent to distance myself from this horrible example, this man who killed Mary Jo!

I certainly hope he was administered the Last Rites, and that he made his last Confession.

More importantly, I Pray that the Lord forgives him his Sins against Humanity...’cause I don’t.

Well, give the Old SOB his due, he fought for what he believed in. I hope Obama doesn’t name the proposed Health Care bill after him and exploit that.

In the meantime, best of wishes for his family. RIP.

Ahhh.... what to say.

He fought for what he believed in. He loved his country and wore its uniform. He was an enemy of my vision of what American should be, but an honest enemy.

God rest his soul, and may his foolish political beliefs be buried along with him.

Not nice....but, not unwarranted. I don’t enjoy the passing of others, but I do have a tough time believing that the last thing that he did was to forge (no pun intended) a letter pertaining to Health Care reform....

RIP Teddy...

Now the left will be even more adamant about the healthcare bill. Gotta pass it you know, because it was Senator Kennedy’s baby. Sympathy will be flowing big time.

“It is appointed onto man once to die, but after this the judgement”. Ted Kennedy, responsible for the deaths of millions of babies and of Mary Jo Kopechne will now face the righteous eternal judgement from God the Father. Ted Kennedy showed no mercy to aborted babies or to Mary Jo Kopechne. He will give an account to a Holy God for his deeds, as we all will some day.

Yepper, which I think will backfire because people will see right through it like they did when Obama tried pulling the religion card.
