More on Kerry and communion
"According to other sources inside the Kerry camp, aides are attempting to identify a Catholic diocese, and perhaps even a specific priest and church, where Kerry could attend a Mass with reporters present, and be turned away at the altar attempting to receive communion."
Now, information from unnammed 'sources' is generally not worth listening to, much less citing, and I should probably just ignore this altogether. But it is not inconsistent with Kerry's character as displayed thus far. Apparently the idea would be to paint Kerry as a good, churchgoing Catholic just trying to follow his conscience ('Personally Opposed, But" [TM]), turned away at the communion line by a conservative, oppressive Church. A 'martyr complex,' if you will. If it's true, it's sick.
