My esteemed colleague Christopher provides us with his customarily insightful analysis of the lame excuses proferred by one Ono Ekeh in seeking to rationalize his pathetic "political orientation," a phrase reminsicent of another common euphemism used to mask evil.
Chistopher also draws our attention to the eminently readable Amy Welborn, whom he describes as understandably mystifyed by Ekeh's apologia pro se. Others, however, appear to be not so much mystified as confused. [See comment box.]
I am pleased to report for the edification of all concerned that Fr. Rob Johansen, St. Blog's resident Fr. Brown, has cracked the case and Thrown Back Ekeh's sophistries in the bargain.
Hopefully, you've bookmarked—and, if applicable, blogrolled—Thrown Back, which is another excellent source for following the twists and turns of the Danse Kerry in which bishops pirouette around the truth, while the CINO-evil senator dances with the devil.
"Catholic Democrats", if they want to be taken seriously, should be devoting their energies to breaking the absolute lockstep conformity on abortion, and acquiescence to the Gay agenda, required by their Party. Unless and until they do so, they deservedly incur the suspicion that they are Democrats first and Catholics second.
By removing the protection of unborn life to an undefined Democratic utopian future, one might as well say "come the Parousia, then we'll do something about abortion." It turns protecting unborn human life into a meaningless abstraction. It puts defending innocent unborn life on the back burner.
As for Catholics, in the halls of government or the back rooms of chanceries, who seek to put the holocaust of the unborn on the backburner, Catholic Kerry Watch pledges the fire of truth. After all, it is far preferable to the fire to come!
Now, go and read the rest of Fr. Johansen's analysis or, as my friend Lane Core Jr. would say, lege.

Sen. John Kerry stands with Kate Michelman (right) President of NARAL Pro-Choice America.
Since 1995, Michelman's group has given Kerry a 100% rating for his voting record to defend abortion.
