“The courage to criticize a Kennedy”

TO?THE?EDITOR:

My mother called me from St. Petersburg, Florida to ask if I had heard about Bishop Tobin’s response to the Congressman; it seems that EWTN did a story on it. I had and we were both proud of the Bishop’s courage to criticize a “Kennedy” when he is clearly wrong.

To accuse the Church of not wanting care for all is ridiculous. But to continue to support abortion on demand is damning.

Rhode Islanders should be proud of our Bishop for taking a high moral ground.

Rep. Kennedy will be re-elected; it’s Rhode Island after all and his name is magic. But Thomas Tobin will be remembered as the bishop who was not afraid to tell him he was wrong.
