Why Kerry cannot receive Communion

A spokesperson for Kerry says:

Responding to Arinze, Kerry spokesman David Wade reiterated Kerry's position that there should be a separation of church and state.

"The decisions he will make as president will be guided by his obligation to all the people of our country and to the Constitution of the United States," Wade said in a statement. "Every American -- whether they be Jewish, Catholic, Protestant or any other faith -- must believe their president is representing them."

Sorry, Mr. Kerry - 'Separation of Church and State' does not mean you get to put one finger in two pies. It doesn't mean you have one set of standards for your personal life and a different set for your public life.

E.g. If I support ethnic cleansing as a political leader, but claim that I have no moral guilt because personally I am opposed to it - is that separation of Church and State?

Mr Kerry - much as I dislike Bush and like to see a Catholic voted the US President - you must choose.
