Senator Ted Kennedy Dead at 77

by Steve Ray on August 26, 2009

screen-capture-2Ted Kennedy, the ultra-liberal Senator from Massachusetts, died Tuesday night from brain cancer. Though he was raised and claimed to be Catholic, he promoted abortion and other wrong-headed agendas. In his condolences Obama called him “the greatest US Senator of our time.” (Really! I’ve despised him from the beginning!)

The media will paint him as a compassionate, progressive model of an ideal American. In my mind he exemplified what is wrong with our country and what is wrong with many in our Church today. (I can’t say I’ll miss him — I am trying to be kind here.)

Listening to Obama gush all over Kennedy in a eulogy today disgusted me. He never mentioned the millions of babies that die because of Kennedy’s votes, his drunken womanizing, nor the drowning and subsequent silence regarding Mary Jo Kopechne at Chappaquiddick.

It is a dangerous thing to fall into the hands of an angry God. I hope he repented before his death. May God have mercy on his soul.

Human Life International Comments

In 1971 Ted Kennedy said, “When history looks back to this era it should recognize this generation as one which cared about human beings enough to halt the practice of war, to provide a decent living for every family, and to fulfill its responsibility to its children from the very moment of conception.” How sad that he abandoned the truth and advocated of the lie.

Yeah, perhaps Obama should have said, “greatest Senator, in some people’s opinions”, but just like everything else, Obama likes to skirt around or exaggerate things a bit!

I will pray for his soul and for his family. I don’t know the personal side of him as he was with his family and I am sorry for their loss. However, the fact that he supposedly “worked tirelessly” (in the words of many tributes from various world leaders) to promote children’s rights (healthcare and education) and justice for all, where was his compassion for the unborn? He changed his mind on abortion when it was politically convenient, turning his back on the Truth of his Catholic faith.

At least his sister, Eunice Shriver, who passed away recently, never changed her mind and remained pro-life. I did have respect for her especially with all the work she did for the disabled community.

I wish I could say I had the same respect for Ted Kennedy, but I found that very difficult. Now we will have to hear incessantly about how great he was and how much he worked to “better” our country. I wouldn’t be surprised if Obama uses this as a way to try to make another push for his “Obama-care” plan. “Let’s do it for Teddy!”, or something to that effect.

Oh well. It’s just a shame. The guy had a lot of power and could have really been an influential voice to speak out for the protection of all in our society, particularly the unborn!

As I said, I will pray for his soul and for his family; many of them need conversion so they come back to believing in the fullness of the faith that they profess!

I pray that Kennedy’s soul is ‘glory bound’. If so, who would be better to intercede for us than those have seen the err of their ways and can now pray for those who they have hurt. Hopefully, now he the champion of the unborn that he wasn’t here on earth.

Please let the dead rest in peace. Have mercy be a Catholic.

STEVE RAY HERE: WE ALWAYS LET THE DEAD REST IN PEACE AND PRAY FOR THEIR SOUL. BUT, WE DO NOT IGNORE THE LAWS OF THE CHURCH, THE DAMAGE ONE HAS DONE IN THEIR LIFETIME, AND THE TRUTH OF REALITY.
