Hmmmm. This must be the same reasoning that let Fat Teddy off the hook for murder, adultery, aggressive support of abortion, etc. After all, he was such an exemplary Catholic that he had 2 Cardinals officiate at his funeral.
I guess the same applies to Pelosi, Shaheen, Biden and the rest of the Pro-abortion crowd. They only SAY they support abortion and that the Pope, Cardinals, Bishops and theologians are interpreting scripture wrong.
Wow, it must be great to be an expert in Canon Law. I guess the Ten Commandments and the rest are really just the Ten Suggestions. Cool!!!
Sorry, that should be ‘Senator ‘Fat Teddy’ Kennedy’ - don’t want to insult anyone who may share the nickname.
If you click on the above link, you may post all the questions you like .... to the author. He is a Canon Lawyer so he knows his stuff. Just so you know.
Wrong. The only Cardinal there was Sean O'Malley, and IIRC, he didn't 'officiate'. He simply sat on the altar part of the time while Mass was being said, or stood by during the Consecration, because that is about JESUS, not Teddy the Swimmer.
Cardinal O'Malley stated that the only reason he was there was that he thought he should be, in deference to the fact that the President of the United States would be in attendance. I think he would rather have been anywhere but there.
