Kerry Presents Himself for Communion

At an AME church...

They should have refused him, because he isn't in "communion" with them--but I think it shows what he thinks of anyone's religious tradition.

From Politics News Article |

"After surgery to repair a torn tendon in his right shoulder, Democrat John Kerry eased back onto the campaign trail Sunday, shaking hands at first with his left arm but forgoing the political traditions of back-slapping and baby-hoisting.

Despite his doctor's estimate that it would be 'a week or two' until he could shake hands in the normal fashion, Kerry appeared to be in no pain as he used his right arm later to greet churchgoers in Boston's Roxbury neighborhood.

A Catholic, Kerry marked Palm Sunday and the start of Easter week at the Charles Street African Methodist Episcopal Church where he was given a hero's welcome.

'We're thankful that there's going to be a revolution in this country ... a new movement,' declared pastor Gregory Groover. '

And we say, God, bring him on, the next president of the United States.'

Kerry, who has worshiped at the predominantly black church at least twice before, and his wife Teresa both took communion. "

For more on this issue, see my previous post on plans by the Kerry campaign to find a priest who'll refuse him--read the comments if you are with the Kerry campaign, Father Brian has posted his contact info (including confession times)!
