Senator Kennedy Reads the New Testament

Monday, 07 March 2005 12:00 AM

Kennedy rather sloppily referred to "the teachings of Mark," which say that we will be judged on the way we treat the poor and marginalized [actually Matthew 25, although there are some interesting things about divorce and re-marriage in Mark's Gospel] and went on to speak about his Catholic faith as a religion of "hope and resurrection."

In other words, his last visit to a Church [apart from campaign stops] was for a funeral.

Republicans take note. As Democrats scramble to cut their losses on religious issues, witless Republicans like Christie Whitman lament that the Republican Party has been hijacked by religious conservatives.

The 2004 election proved that the Republicans need cultural conservatives to win on the national level. Senator Kennedy's stammering about the importance of his faith only confirms what should be obvious to the most casual observer.
