The U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican position remains open, but even “pro-choice Catholic” John Kerry seems certain that a pro-life candidate is a necessity for that post.
From the USA Today:
In other comments, Kerry said:
• He did not recommend Caroline Kennedy to be U.S. ambassador to the Vatican. Kerry believes an abortion-rights supporter should not be in that post, to avoid offending the Holy See.
“I made no such recommendation,” he said, refuting Italian news media reports. “I think that if you’re going to have an ambassador who has access to His Holiness … it is best not to make things difficult from the outset.”
So Sen. Kerry is willing to commit to Catholic pro-life standards on a targeted, temporary and political basis to avoid offending the Vatican, but not as a life-long Christian conviction to avoid offending Jesus Christ? Now all we have to do is convince Kerry that the unborn are perpetually up for a Vatican ambassadorship.
For Kerry’s sake, I hope that “I was for legal abortion, before I was against it briefly, before I was for it again” is an acceptible explanation at the entrance to the Pearly Gates.
