CATHOLIC POLITICIANS

A couple of people have pointed to this post at No More Mister Nice Blog, who points out that the New York City archdiocese are threatening to block John Kerry from attending the Al Smith Memorial Dinner, a election-year ritual for Presidential candidates.

Steve of NMMNB notes that in past years, pro-choice Catholic politicians like Rudy Giuliani and George Pataki have had no trouble getting into the dinner. But of course, they're pro-choice Catholic Republicans, so it's alright! Heck, Giuliani supports both choice and the death penalty!

Of course, candidate-Bush spoke in 2000 at Bob Jones University, a non-accredited institution with a history of virulent anti-Catholicism, showing remorse for his attendance only much later when backed deeply into a corner for it. Yet the Archdiocese had no problem with his attending the Smith Dinner that fall.

Steve also notes that another Democrat, Indiana Governor Joe Kernan, is in the crosshairs of the new Catholic jihad against pro-choice Democratic politicians.

Can we please tax these guys?
