According to the Washington Times:
In fact, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, a liberal Massachusetts Democrat, got a personalized delivery of Communion, said Dan Skehan, a businessman from Lancaster, Pa., who sat in Section 216 directly above the senator.
Minutes before the rest of the enormous crowd lined up to receive the sacrament, Mr. Skehan and his two sons spotted a priest making his way down the steps to the senator to hand him the consecrated host.
"It was obviously prearranged," Mr. Skehan said, "maybe out of regard for his girth and lack of mobility. I turned immediately to both my sons and said, 'Oh my gosh, look at that.' Everyone in my section, which was filled with people from Lancaster, said, 'That is outrageous. How could they do that?'"
At first, on April 30, archdiocese spokeswoman Susan Gibbs denied that Mr. Kennedy had partaken, saying such a scenario "wouldn't be possible."
Then on May 1, Mr. Kennedy's office e-mailed The Washington Times a one-sentence statement saying the senator had indeed received Communion at the Mass.
"They know which priest was assigned to distribute Communion in that section," he said. "Those priests couldn't wander around. They had 47,000 people receive Communion in 15 minutes. That was orchestrated. They knew who was where."
Now, we have another pro-abortion, pro-homosexual politician who has received Communion. The Archdiocese claims that this could not have happened? Give me a break.
Will there be other names coming forward? Maybe this is why the Archbishop continues to push this notion that only the local bishop can do anything.
Personally, I think that a much better title to this story would be: “I see nothing, nothing!” Sgt. Schultz - Hogan’s Heroes television series.
