Out of the Blue

I am surprised to note that it's now been eight years now that I've been on the hardware accelerated bandwagon (I guess it's safe to assume the trend is here to stay). It was right about now in 1996 that I got my Vérité-based Rendition Reactor with which to play Quake. In these days when my current video card has more RAM than NASA did back then, it's fun to recall the joys of first pounding out the polygons with that sort of horsepower... I have to confess I still check out my framerates in Quake II after big upgrades to recreate those moments. Yeah, I'm a geek.

If the man was raised Catholic and identifies himself as a Catholic, that's his prerogative.

That's nice. He doesn't say "I was raised Catholic", he says he is Catholic. Big difference. You don't really belong to the religion if you don't follow the teachings of that religion you profess to belong to and uphold. That's like Kennedy saying he's a conservative Republican because he somehow "identifies" with them even though his actions and record clearly say something to the contrary.

One does not have to be (and shouldn't be, if one wants to be a rational member of society, let alone a leader) an automaton parroting church edicts in order to identify oneself as a follower of a particular religion.

There is a difference in not "parroting church edicts" and blatantly disregarding the tenets of your professed religion, are there not? Kerry (and others) blatantly advocate against the teachings of the Catholic church. That's hypocracy, pure and simple. He's pandering to a base he doesn't represent by saying he is what he is not.
