Excommunicating "Red" Kennedy, Posthumously.

Kevin Roeten at TheRealityCheck continues the hideous hacking away at Kennedy's legacy that began with his diagnosis of brain cancer last year.

Roeten points out the usual evils that Kennedy committed against the Catholic church - support for women's reproductive rights, efforts to reform health care (forever now erroneously tied to state-mandated euthanasia and abortion) and includes a few new ones: collusion with the evil Russians in the 80s.

Doug Patton, whose column in GOPUSA [Let Us Not Confuse Longevity With Statesmanship], brings back one of Kennedy’s most disreputable moments. What many consider treasonous occurred during the Cold War in 1983.
Kennedy sent word to Premier Yuri Andropov offering his help in undermining the Reagan Administration in its dealings with the USSR, in exchange for Andropov’s help in defeating Reagan in the 1984 presidential election. But we all have a short memory and few remember that.
What does one think of a US senator offering to help our sworn enemy in exchange for propaganda to win an election? Of course, a true Catholic would likely not stoop to such a move much less favor any intrinsic evil.

Is (wrongly assumed) communist sympathy now an official cause for excommunication from the Catholic church? Are there black racists in the NAACP?

LANeuman must either not be Catholic, or fallen away, because he doesn't seem to grasp the situation.

Kennedy was excommunicated years ago for his ideas on abortion, euthanasia, same-sex marriage, cloning and other Catholic beliefs.

None of them even border Catholicism, and are actually anti-Catholic. The funeral was a complete farce, especially because of the Catholic mass.
