too strong?

Have you read Father Thomas J. Euteneuer's column this week? Whoa.
We must, as a matter of precept, pray for the salvation of heretical Catholics like Senator Edward Kennedy, but we do not have to praise him let alone extol him with the full honors of a public Catholic funeral and all the adulation that attends such an event. There was very little about Ted Kennedy's life that deserves admiration from a spiritual or moral point of view. He was probably the worst example of a Catholic statesman that one can think of. When all is said and done, he has distorted the concept of what it means to be a Catholic in public life more than anyone else in leadership today.
Beating back scandal is important, I suppose.

Looks like fame is taking its toll on Fr. Tom's sanity... as well as his heart.

Comments like Fr Tom's is why non-american Catholics look at the american church and laugh.
