Well, it looks like Blogger is finally letting me login again, although in the "Posting: Create" tab all the dandy editting aides are gone (like, BOLD, Italics, and most importantly, linking). A friend of mine sent me the following link, which seems to explain where Senator Kerry and his ilk get their "theology". I believe the readers of CRM will be amused: http://www.theologyonline.com/newgod/. I think you are going to need to copy and paste the http address because Blogger is not liking me the past few days. I wonder if it has anything to do with switching to Mac.

Also, have the readers of CRM heard about the letter, concerning Senator Kerry's possible excommunication? Several months ago, a canon lawyer filed heresy charges against the Senator in the tribunal of the Archdiocese of Boston. The same lawyer submitted a "dubia" or question to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) asking if dissenting from the Church's teaching on abortion constituted heresy. The CDF's undersecretary, Fr. J. Augustine DiNoia, OP, officially delegated the question to an American theologian, Fr. Basil Cole, OP who answered the "dubia" in the affirmative (meaning that it would be an act of heresy to publicly support abortion, and would carry the automatic excommunication). I have a copy of Fr. Cole's letter, interestingly dated September 11, 2004, but Blogger will not allow me to attach it. I'm sure our readers are wise enough to find it on the Net. It will be interesting to see what the Tribunal in Boston does now. The lawyer who filed the charge is planning to file similar charges against other promenient "Catholic" politicians, both Democrats and Republicans.
