Cardinal Roger Mahony issued a statement today calling the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) a champion of "the voiceless, the powerless and the most needy of our citizens."
[A champion of the powerless - as in furthering the slaughter of the innocent, "voiceless" and "powerless" unborn? Mahony is one sick slug!]

Breaking News: Senator Edward “Ted” Kennedy Has Died (Deacon Keith Fournier)
He came to be known as a stalwart proponent of what is currently being called a “liberal” or even “progressive” social agenda.

An honest obituary of “Sir” Ted Kennedy you’ll never see in print
Senator Ted Kennedy has lost his battle to live. As a Christian I hope God has mercy on him. He suffered from a ghastly cancerous brain tumor that has apparently taken his life.

We also pledge to "remember that [we] do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person's family and economic stability."
