Black churchgoer to Kerry: "Sit down, you phony!"

John Kerry continued to court the black vote as he made a stop in a Columbus, OH church today.

While Kerry continued to tout his message of sharing a "common future, hopes and dreams," Bishop Timothy Clarke of the nondenominational First Church of God refused to endorse Kerry or President Bush in the race for the White House. Clarke only encouraged the more than 2,000, mostly black parishioners to register and vote.

When Kerry was introduced, one parishioner wasn't impressed.

Kerry's introduction drew a protest from one member who stood and shouted, "Sit down ... you big phony," before he was hustled out clutching a Bible.
Kerry also used his speech to throw a jab at President Bush.
"It is written, what does it mean my brother if you have faith if there are no deeds? Faith without works is dead," he said, a subtle slap at Bush without mentioning the president's name.
Subtle? About as subtle as a two-by-four upside the head.

"I believe life does begin at conception."
"Faith without works is dead,"

Monseigneur Kerry seems to have multiple personality disorder.

Who in blazes does he think he is? Having a church member thrown out?? I'm glad I don't have to explain his actions to God.

I wonder how long they searched through a scripture database to find a) an appropriate passage and b) something with "my brother" in it.

Read The Weekely Standard article John Kerry Is Different From You And Me; the most Kerry ever gave to charity was $2,039 in 1994. In the senate, "he has spent almost 2 decades . . . yet has no major items of legistation to his name", according to this week's Economist
Faith without works is dead, alright.

I don't understand why he continues to use one of the most devisive passages that divide the Roman Catholic Church from the Protestant denominations ?
