Fortunately, sources at the Vatican have been quoted as saying Kmiec would not be acceptable. Let's hope and pray that that opinion will win the day.
Could the article be a trial balloon floated to prod the Obama team into giving Kmiec the ambassadorship?
What reward will Obama give Kmiec for propagandizing for him among Catholics? It would be great if the Obama team would offer Kmiec nothing or else only a minor post.
But what nerve of America, and how typical of liberals, to think an excuser of, and propagandist for, a blatantly pro-abortion politician would make a great U.S. ambassador to the Holy See.
Kmiec is indeed an ex-pro-lifer, by the way, because in an op-ed of his in the L.A. Times on October 17 he said this about aborting God's little babies:
"The way out is to remember that when there are differences among religious creeds, none is entitled to be given preference in law or policy. Sometimes the law must simply leave space for the exercise of individual judgment, because our religious or scientific differences of opinion are for the moment too profound to be bridged collectively."
