SJ-R.COM - Durbin finds politics, religion at odds:
"Durbin did not comment when told of Vann's stand. But he said in an earlier interview last week that he thinks it is a mistake to require members of the faith who hold public office 'to swear the first loyalty to the teachings of the church and decisions of the Vatican.'"
These "catholic" politicians have just completely lost it. Of course first loyalty is too your faith. "God, Country, Notre Dame" or the Marine slogan "God, Country, Corp", Thomas More, "The King's good servant, but God's First", St. Matthew's Gospel (6:33): "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."
