Another day… Another Pro-abortion Kennedy bashes the Catholic Church.
Rep. Patrick Kennedy does not understand why the Catholic Church would oppose rationed nationalized health care that covers abortion.

CNS News reported, via FOX Nation:

Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I) told that the Catholic Church is doing nothing but fanning “the flames of dissent and discord” by taking the position that it will oppose the health-care reform bill under consideration in Congress unless it is amended to explicitly prohibit funding of abortion.

“I can’t understand for the life of me how the Catholic Church could be against the biggest social justice issue of our time, where the very dignity of the human person is being respected by the fact that we’re caring and giving health care to the human person–that right now we have 50 million people who are uninsured,” Kennedy told when asked about a letter the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) had sent to members of Congress stating the bishops’ position on abortion funding in the health-care bill.

Evidently, the Catholic bishops did not believe the most radical pro-abortion, pro-infanticide president in history when he promised Americans that abortion would not be covered in his nationalized health care plan.

UPDATE: Kennedy’s bishop called him a disappointment today and asked for an apology.
