As JFW points out in the Forum, John Kerry attended Mass on Sunday in Idaho. He showed up in his ski clothes, to the annoyance of parishioners. He also received Communion to the annoyance of all Catholics in good standing. But it’s his staff person’s attitude that takes the cake:
“It was just a media-op,” says a Kerry advance staffer. “We set it up with some reporters that we knew were going to be there.”
Just a media-op. Not a sincere expression of the Senator’s faith. Not an opportunity to worship God. Not even a witness to Christian belief. A media-op designed to create a presumably false image of the Senator as someone who is a faithful Catholic in order to fool all the little irish grandmothers into voting for him. Sick.
