Congressman Kennedy Would Prefer Less Dissent from the Catholic Church on Abortion and Healthcare

Carroll Andrew Morse

CNS News has posted a video of an interview with Rhode Island First District Congressman Patrick Kennedy, where he says that the Catholic Church's opposition to including funding for abortion in healthcare reform plans "is an absolute red herring" that does nothing but "fan the flames of dissent and discord".

You have to start to wonder, is there any time ever that Congressman Kennedy believes that someone can reasonably dissent from his positions?

I am shocked, SHOCKED that he didn't answer the Church's concerns over abortion at all, but instead chose to avoid the issue entirely and rattle off his elevator speech for universal health care once again.
