The Kennedy Funeral – A Golden Opportunity or Capitulation for the Catholic Church

Editorial by John-Henry Westen August 26, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Saturday’s grandiose Catholic funeral for Senator Ted Kennedy has the potential to be a scandal that will make Notre Dame’s Obama Day a walk in the park.  With all four living former Presidents in attendance and an address from President Barack Obama, the funeral is set to be a royal crowning, right inside a Catholic Church, of a man who betrayed the most fundamental moral teachings of the faith.
