Kerry Catholics call Bush "Anti-Christ"

In comments released today, Catholic League president William Donohue responded to comments on the site that called President George W. Bush "The Anti-Christ."

“The home page of Catholics for Kerry 04 prominently lists comments by Wayne Madsden, who says, ‘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 also charges that Bush ‘couples his political fanaticism with a neo-Christian blood cult.’

“This is the language of a demagogue, and it has 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. But at the same time, it shows how hypocritical the operatives in the Kerry camp really are."

The site links to Kerry's official website, and encourages support for Kerry.

I call on Kerry and his team to denounce these comments as mean-spirited, antagonistic and just plain wrong. (not that I'm holding my breath or anything...)

As I mentioned when talking about Jesse Jackson's comments last week, neither party has any monopoly on The Bible or on religion. God loves all.

"...bear all the hallmarks of the one warned about in the Book of Revelations"

Sorry, big pet peeve here. There is no 'S' in Revelation. Those who put one there, for the most part, have never read the book. To make things worse, this guy is the president of a "Christian" organization.

i don't know about anyone else on here but speaking as a person with a fervent dislike for christianity and organised religion in general it strikes me as somewhat bizarre that the Catholic and Protestant churces squabble so much.

1. Do they both read from the same book?
2. Do they both acknowledge one god?
3. Do they both preach a morality based on the teachings of both the Old and New Testament ir the 10 commandments?

As the answer to all three questions is YES what the hell can be so important that its worth fighting over? Is it more important that the priest speaks in Latin or English than that people "love thy neighbour", and do not commit murder or covet thy neighbours wife?
