Kennedy, stressed the importance of separating church and state, imagining a nation “where no religious body seeks to impose its will directly or indirectly upon the general populace or the public acts of its officials.” Fast forward to the present where Rick Santorum — also Catholic — feels that mentality makes him throw up, and it’s clear how much power the Catholic Hierarchy is now exerting over the debate about equality.

It is a matter of public record that U.S. bishops have knowingly transferred thousands of abusive priests into unsuspecting parishes and dioceses, placing fear of "scandal" ahead of the welfare of children.

He stupidly went on to say that "those efforts have failed."
