In a column for Newsweek magazine's Web site, Kennedy Townsend — eldest of Robert Kennedy's 11 children — asserted: "Obama's pragmatic approach to divisive policy . . . and his social-justice agenda reflect the views of American Catholic laity much more closely than those vocal bishops and pro-life activists."

She noted that while Obama and Pope Benedict XVI "disagree about reproductive freedoms and homosexuality," American Catholics "know Obama's on their side. In fact, Obama's agenda is closer to their views than even the Pope's."

You are right to be disturbed, but her statements are frivolous and unworthy of much consideration.  The Kennedy clan has been in intellectual and moral decline for more than five decades and it is dissipating in a miasma of religious scandal, depravity, intellectual barrenness, and ennui. 

Fyi, this topic was raised here last week; because of your interest in this, you may want to take a look at the FE comments here:
