John Kerry is a saint

(obrigado a GK pela indicação)

John Kerry was going to visit the National Shrine in
DC, as part of his campaign. Kerry's campaign manager
made a visit to the Cardinal and said to him, "We've
been getting a lot of bad publicity among Catholics
because of Kerry's position on abortion and the like.
We'd gladly make a contribution to the church of
$100,000 if during your sermon you'd say John Kerry is
a saint."

The Cardinal thinks it over for a moment and agrees to
do it.

Kerry shows up, and as the Mass progresses the
Cardinal begins his homily. "John Kerry is petty, a
self absorbed hypocrite and a nit-wit. He is a liar, a
cheat, and a thief. He is the worst example of a
Catholic I've ever personally known. But compared to
Ted Kennedy, John Kerry is a saint."
