John Kerry turns his back to God on the big issue

Jonah Goldberg on Kerry and Faith on National Review Online

Goldberg says it better. This is something that has already peeved me about liberals who invoke religion. While they don't want to have anyone allowing "faith" to direct them in such issues as abortion or homosexuality, they will call for adherence to "faith" when it comes to their socialistic issues. Here, why am I rehashing this? Jonah says it better.
What I do object to is this: While Kerry says he's opposed to 'legislating' his faith on abortion, he insists that he's in favor of legislating his faith elsewhere. He said more than once Wednesday night, and plenty of times on the stump, that faith must be backed up by deeds. His religious faith, he says, is 'why I fight against poverty. That's why I fight to clean up the environment and protect this earth. That's why I fight for equality and justice. All of those things come out of that fundamental teaching and belief of faith.'

So, let me get this straight. Fighting for the environment, equality, and education - in the name of God - is righteously doing the Lord's work, but abortion must be kept legal because otherwise we'd be legislating religion?
I can't help it, I have to add one thing. The socialistic ideas they wish to attribute to the Sermon on the Mount, were not ideas intended to be fulfilled by GOVERNMENT they were ideas intended to be fulfilled by INDIVIDUALS.
