Kerry On Iraq

Kerry On Iraq

The Republican Party has a new web site Kerry on Iraq that includes a documentary showing Kerry, in his own words, flip-flopping all over the place on Iraq. The weight of the video and documentary evidence is overwhelming. Just look at the beginning of the 12-minute film.

Of course, there’s a few academics who realize that in order to be taken seriously they need to appear to have deeper substance and so they invent all this baloney about homosexuality being about more than sex. Hey, it’s right in the name of the affliction.

In the whole coverage of the issue, there is only one article laying out the Church’s teachings on homosexuality. The rest of it is devoted to exposition of homosexuality in a completely non-judgmental (i.e., without calling a sin a sin) way.

Want to see how the rest of the Notre Dame community views this? Want to see the effectiveness of the Catholic education there? Just read the reader reactions.
