2, 4, 6, 8, time to transubstantiate...

April 25, 2004 | BOSTON -- Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry received communion from a Catholic priest Saturday, one day after a top Vatican cardinal said politicians who support abortion rights should be denied the Eucharist.

Kerry took communion during the 6 p.m. mass at Boston's Paulist Center, where campaign spokesman David Wade said the candidate regularly worships. The church is close to the Beacon Hill home Kerry shares with his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry.

"We're following the directive of our archdiocese," said Father Joe Ciccone, who gave Kerry the Eucharist. "They have said we should give him communion."

My emphasis, but what I'd really like to emphasize is what a sorry state of affairs it is when right-wingnuts to whom we so often apply the word 'religious' have made the private religious practices of an American citizen a matter of national news.

I believe in a God who will damn them for that...
