Kerry, Candidate and Catholic, Creates Uneasiness for Church

There aren't any specific quotes in this article that I found all that important, but I think this is an interesting issue over all. Many people have raised Kerry's similarities to the first JFK (not the least of whom have been in Kerry's employ), and particularly concerning the fact that he is Catholic. In reality, while Kerry was raised Catholic, and maintains that image for publicity's sake, he violates some of the key teachings of The Church, quite publicly. With JFK, the question was "do we want a Catholic?" With Kerry, it's more accurately "do we want a Catholic who isn't actually Catholic?"
