How can someone of the Catholic faith say that Sen. John Kerry is a hypocrite? I, too, am a Catholic and know that one of the main teachings of the church is forgiveness. Some people do not understand what Kerry is saying. He can believe personally that abortion is wrong, but he cannot, as a political leader, expect people to trust him if he tries to push his beliefs on everyone. He must govern with his head, not his heart. He must represent all people and all religions equally. Is this not what this country was founded on?
