Catholic League calls on Kerry to ‘condemn’ Catholics for Kerry Web site

.- The Catholic League says Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry should “condemn” the Catholics for Kerry 04 Web site for having a statement that refers to President George W. Bush as “the anti-Christ.”

On the Web site, Wayne Madsden writes: “George W. Bush’s blood lust, his repeated commitment to Christian beliefs and his constant references to ‘evil doers,’ in the eyes of many devout Catholic leaders, bear all the hallmarks of the one warned about in the Book of Revelations—the anti-Christ.” He adds that Bush “couples his political fanaticism with a neo-Christian blood cult.”

Catholic League president William Donohue says such comments have “no legitimate role to play in presidential politics.

“It is important to note that it is not the position of the Catholic League that the Kerry camp should be held responsible for this group of wacko Catholics,” said Donohue.

However, he added, “it would seem only proper that John Kerry should condemn Catholics for Kerry 04.” 

Donohue said this would seem only reasonable since Kerry spokesman Chad Clanton recently demanded that Bush “condemn” a book about Kerry’s alleged fraudulent behavior in Vietnam because one of authors made anti-Catholic remarks in a chat room last year.
