I'm Hoping This is Wrong

NOTE: YOU ARE VIEWING AN ARCHIVED POST AT RUNNING SCARED'S OLD BLOG. PLEASE VISIT THE NEW BLOG HERE.

But according to Brilliant at Breakfast, (great blog, by the way, check her out) the Catholic News Service is reporting that John Kerry has been excommunicated by the Vatican. An excerpt:

"any Catholic politician who says he is "personally opposed to abortion, but supports a woman's right to choose," incurs automatic excommunication. It also provided a basis for Balestrieri to broaden his canonical actions and file additional complaints against four more pro-abortion Catholic politicians: Democrat Senators Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts and Tom Harkin of Iowa; Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine; and former New York Governor Mario Cuomo, a Democrat."

I don't know what is more frightening. The secular partisan abuse of the power of the church this could display, or the comments that people have left in that posting on CNS. Seriously... read the comments. These people are very much out in "Chucky with a Chainsaw" land.
