Kennedy’s Got a Friend at the Projo

It’s a small thing, really, but curious to note: The Providence Journal‘s “In Quotes: The Week That Was” section touches on Patrick Kennedy’s attack on the Catholic Church and Bishop Thomas Tobin’s reply, but it puts the bishop’s call for an apology first and then doesn’t quote the more aggressive line from Kennedy’s interview.
“If the church is pro-life, then they ought to be for health-care reform” is unduly political, but not really offensive. By contrast, declaring the Church’s insistence that federal healthcare dollars not fund abortion to be dishonest (i.e., “a red herring”) and contributory to civic violence (i.e., fanning “the flames of dissent and discord”) does justify a call for apology.
As I said: curious. But then, we already knew that Patches has a friend at the Projo.

Only if Patches cared about Rhode Island or governance as much as he loves oxycontin. The whole political spectrum in this state should spit on this man not re-elect him constantly. Rosemary Kennedy postlobotomy had more common sense and intellect than this clown. Yet, we watch year after year this hack fall deeper into addiction and mental instability. When is enough enough? First the catholic church, what next the girl scouts. We are watching a mad man imploding before our very eyes.
