Senator John Kerry, Massachusetts

    This series, appropriately titled "Herod's Heroes," is intended to separate the wheat from the chaff by revealing those men and women whom we have voted and who are not upholding the ideals God expects of His children. We cannot condone sin, and they are promoting the most vile of sin by being accomplices to the slaughter of millions of innocents in the womb. That is why, like the Judean king of Christ's time, who, out of political expediency and jealousy, tried to eliminate the Messiah by killing the first-born of every family, so also they are helping satan in killing God's precious ones sacrificed at the altar of the convenience of modern life. These "Herod's Heroes" are under the totally false misconception that a woman has the right to do with her body as she wants. Wrong! It is not hers, but rather God's. The body we have is merely a shell to hold our soul. The soul is forever; the body, as we are reminded on Ash Wednesday, will return to dust. Christ has said in Matthew 10: 28, "Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather be afraid of him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."

    Second on the list of "Herod's Heroes" is the other Massachusetts Senator John Kerry. As an ally of satan through his uncompromising pro-abortion stance, he is enabling lucifer to "destroy both soul and body in hell." Through his actions he has become an enemy of God and the Roman Catholic Church.

    What is it about these Irish Catholic politicians of this state that they would abandon the ideals they were taught. From his early years through obtaining a law degree from Boston College, the Catholic university on Chestnut Hill in Boston. Born and bred in "Bean town" he has centered his life there except for time in the Navy during the Vietnam War.

    Serving as an officer in the Mekong Delta, surely he saw the emotional effect of killing and the tragedy of tortured bodies. Doesn't he realize the same thing happens to the innocent unborn through the hideous act of abortion? Evidently not for he has a record that has been applauded by pro-aborts. And why not? His voting record is 100% in voting and legislating for the culture of death. He is indeed a hero of Herod, a hero of satan.

    He is one of the eight Democratic senators to ignore the advice of his fellow colleagues in the Senate, to ignore the medical results and the AMA's stand against partial-birth abortion. But still he voted against the ban, choosing to send millions more to their death in the late term of pregnancy. Does the man not have a conscience?

    With his Catholic background and Catholic connections he is indeed a scandal to all Catholics and American citizens who see the double standard of one who calls himself 'Catholic' but in his actions goes against what Catholicism teaches. We respectfully ask Cardinal Bernard Law, Archbishop of Boston and the shepherd governing Senator Kerry, in cooperation with Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, whose jurisdiction Kerry comes under when in the Senate, to call the senator to task. He must be held accountable for his actions. Is his political career more important than the welfare of his soul? Ask him. His e-mail is

    We also call on Senator Kerry to repent of his apostasy and return to the fold. If he is not willing to obey the Church, how can he command any authority in his position. Further, how can he continue to be a Catholic. Henry VIII thought he could flaunt the rules and laws of God and His Church. The Church wouldn't stand for it then and she should not stand for it now! The time has come, your Eminences, to put Senator Kerry on the clock. We truly want him back into the fold as one of the good sheep, but if he persists in being a wolf in sheep's clothing, then it will be time to put him out to pasture. If, by Pentecost Sunday, Senator Kerry refuses to repent, then he must be notified that he has interdicted himself by his actions, incurred automatic suspension (latae sententiae), and thus has been EXCOMMUNICATED! (cf. Canon Law 1329, 2; 1397 and 1398).
